From Pranav Patel in Michigan, USA - bought a 6497 Guilloche Weave family Custom:
I consider myself a small-time watch collector and horological buff. I was surfing the internet on new watches and watch reviews when I came upon an article for Wessex Watches. I was very intrigued as to the notion of creating my own singular watch. After reviewing the Wessex website, I sent a question regarding the article I had read. Not thinking anyone would respond back soon, I was quite impressed with the immediate response. From that initial feedback to the time the watch was delivered was all very new to me. I had never thought about having a family heirloom created in the form of a watch.
Jamie Boyd and his team at Wessex are engaged with the customer and very proactive in exceeding the customer expectations. Even with the 5 hour time difference, there was never any lag in time on any of the communications. From the onset, Jamie was very committed to providing a watch that would stand the test of time for our family. He created a single piece that serves not only to tell the time but it exquisitely highlights my inputs on design. I’ve been collecting watches for nearly 25 years now and I have yet to meet anyone who is as dedicated to his craft as Jamie is to Wessex.
I am so pleased with the purchase of my Wessex that I’ve already started communicating with him about the next one. There’s no higher form of flattery than to be a repeat customer. By purchasing a Wessex, you’re intricately involved in each phase of the design and the design will only be available to the customer. The notion that a high-quality bespoke watch can be had for a very attractive price is a game changer. If you’ve never seen a Wessex, I suggest that you look hard at it because the one you’re looking at is bespoke. Whatever you can think of, Jamie can create. I look forward to the next Wessex!
