Our Story

The name About Time Ltd borrows from a collection of watches designed by the famous mid-20th-century British jewellery designer Andrew Grima. Andrew was commissioned by Omega in 1969 to create a highly aesthetic avante-garde collection.

In keeping, About Time specialises in the finest names in the timepiece market, from Rolex and Patek Philippe to Omega, Panerai and Zenith.

Marcus Alexander, Company Director, comes from a long-standing relationship with Omega and is highly regarded across the industry for his prodigious knowledge.

Wife, partner & front-of-house, Rebecca Alexander complements this with a professional career in fine jewellery and watch retailing.

Between them they have over 60 years' experience working in fine jewellery, watches, and antiques.

About Time carry an extensive gallery of high end watches which have been restored to a "near new" finish. Each is supported by a one-year warranty and guarantee of originality.

Services also include full restorations, repairs, and batteries for most brands of watches.

About Time offers buy-ins and trades and strongly encourages any enquiries in the watch or jewellery industry.
