Britannia once ruled the waves with its watch industry and, thanks to the likes of Bremont, Roger W. Smith and Garrick, some of that long-lost glory is returning to British shores.
Long before ‘Swiss Made’ became the universally recognised badge of horological quality, London rather than Geneva was your first stop for a decent watch. Hans Wilsdorf even established his little-known company there in 1905 – renaming it ‘Rolex’ in 1908, after listening to the noise his watch made when he wound it one day, sitting on a London bus.
Paul Bowman London becomes inspired looking back into that great pedigree history of Britain watchmaking, now ready to join the club of watchmakers.
The brand Paul Bowman London is born meters away from The Royal Observatory of Greenwich (ROG) The Prime Meridian, Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) South London’s greatest landmarks, our home is the perfect place to build our timepieces, in ground zero, in Longitude 0º where time begins.
The Paul Bowman London watch brand is a passion project that was born out of a love for watches and a deep appreciation for the historical significance of Greenwich, where the brand is based. Greenwich is home to the Royal Observatory and the Prime Meridian, which makes it an ideal location for a watch brand that is dedicated to creating timepieces of the highest quality.

The founder of the Paul Bowman London brand has always been fascinated by watches and their intricate workings. He started collecting watches at a young age and soon became interested in the history of watchmaking. As he learned more about the craft, he developed a passion for creating his own watches.

Greenwich has been a centre of timekeeping and navigation for centuries, with the Royal Observatory and the Prime Meridian located there. The area is also associated with the British Navy, which has a long history of using precision timekeeping for navigation and maritime warfare. After years of research and planning, Paul, officially launched Paul Bowman London. The brand's goal is to create watches that are not only beautiful but also functional and reliable. The brand's commitment to quality is evident in every aspect of its watches, from the materials used to the attention to detail in the design.
The brand has strong ties to the military. The founder Paul, has a great respect for the military and its service members, and this is reflected in the brand's focus on creating timepieces inspired by military designs.

Paul Bowman London is also known for its collaborations with Airbus Helicopters UK. We're also sponsors of the Royal Marines Judo sports team and We're especially proud to share that our accomplishments have been featured in The Ministry of Defence (MOD) Magazine, which further emphasises the brand's focus on producing timepieces inspired by the military. These collaborations have led to unique designs that are both functional and stylish, and they have helped to establish the brand as a serious player in the watchmaking industry. This collaboration is a testament to the brand's commitment to creating watches that are not only beautiful and functional but also meaningful and relevant to the people who wear them.
