Introducing our Ryan & Gilbert Watch collections

Our extensive range of sports watches, chronographs and dress watches here at Ryan & Gilbert is ever-growing and evolving. Our manufacture stands for resilience, durability and accuracy – each timepiece crafted to our exacting standards in excellence, performance and, of course, elegance. For a simple introduction to our most popular timepieces, here’s an overview of our watch collections and the inspiration behind each innovation at Ryan & Gilbert.

St James collection

The stealthy gunmetal finish of the St James watch is perfect for adding a talking point to any sophisticated suit. A compelling deep blue dial against a circular bezel and an integrated metal bracelet in a matching finish makes for an easy accompaniment to formal, business or elegant evening attire. Conveying the exclusivity of the prestigious area located near to Buckingham, St James is an area that draws crowds of tourists in to admire its art galleries, exquisite food halls and popular picnic spots – all of which are the perfect opportunity to sport a watch like the St James watch on the wrist.

Belgravia collection

Lined with terraced stucco townhouses, Belgravia has formed the inspiration behind the design concept of our Ryan & Gilbert Belgravia watch collection. The affluent location in Central London boasts colourful garden squares, quaint antique shops and upmarket hotels and restaurants. Despite the diversity in shops, boutiques and places of historical significance, Belgravia is an area of simplistic beauty – a design code brought into our watch collection. A minimalist three-handed dial is all that is needed in these timeless wristwatches measuring a compact and comfortable 40mm case. Our Belgravia watches also come on steel mesh bracelet options and a range of two or three-toned NATO-style straps for injecting a vibrant splash of colour onto the wrist.

Knightsbridge collection

Celebrating understated style, the Knightsbridge watch collection by Ryan & Gilbert is perfect for wearing every day and everywhere. The cleverness behind its design lies in its purest white dial. Silver and yellow gold-coloured hands and hour indexes underscore the difference between our contemporary options and our traditional ones respectively. Finished on genuine leather straps and a traditional pin buckle style fastening, these three-handed dials with date option celebrate the lush, leafy green garden squares and grand Victorian homes that form a tapestry of colour and texture across this residential district in London.

Westminster collection

Ryan & Gilbert Westminster watches are characterised by their instantly recognisable chronograph dials. Classic and elegant these sportier designs are perfect for collectors who like their watches to be a little more technically sophisticated. Of course, Westminster is the bustling government area near Buckingham Palace which unites the political pillars of London with Royal heritage. Rendered in rose gold and yellow gold tones, these refined chronographs epitomise quintessential luxury.

Mayfair collection

The subtle pattern on each dial of the Ryan & Gilbert Mayfair watch collection is just one example of our devotion to creating watches with attention to detail. A 34mm case diameter bridges the gap between the male and female wrist. Perfect for ladies looking for a boyfriend watch or a gentleman looking for a companion for their slender wrist size, Mayfair watches pay homage to the upscale district of the city, as well as Mayfair’s elegant Georgian townhouses, high-end fashion design studios and traditional bespoke services that inspire this timeless collection of Ryan & Gilbert watches.

Belgravia Petite collection

The delicate Milanese bracelets fitted to every Ryan & Gilbert watch from the Belgravia Petite watch collection imbue a sense of refinement and opulence. The collection, dedicated solely to ladies, features R&G logo-engraved clasps and discreet 30mm case widths for adding a jewellery-like finish to the wrist. The choice between lustrous silvery tones of the steel models, blush pink tones of the rose gold iterations and the traditional warming hue off yellow gold offers plenty of choice for women who prefer the finer things in life.

St Paul’s collection

The Ryan & Gilbert St Paul’s watch is the most functional tool we have designed so far. Perfect for travel, business and leisure, its comfortable, ergonomic design is finished on a supple long-lasting rubber strap. Its utilitarian design enables the wearer to step straight off the plane to attend a boardroom meeting, followed by an evening in a gourmet restaurant and a few drinks at the bar – all without needing to change his wristwatch. The St Paul’s watch, which takes inspiration from St Paul’s Cathedral itself, as well as its dome-shaped viewing point that offers a view of London’s skyline by night, features a chiselled bezel, a rugged steel case, 24-hour scale and additional time zone for travel.
