Newgate is a British clock and watch brand founded by husband and wife duo Jim and Chloe Read in 1991. They began their venture as students by handmaking their clocks in their flat to showing at Alexandra Palace within a short space of time. Jim the creative of the two created clocks that were positively received by the public as they were made with materials never used in clocks and unique in its designs. Eventually their business grew, with the prestigious Harrods being the first shop to stock their pieces. Their range consists of men and women’s watches, alarm and mantel clocks, wall and outdoor clocks. They only started creating watches in 2012 and launched with a collection of fifty watches which are designed with similar features to their clocks.
