MEN’S RED WATCHES
RED WILLIAM WOOD WATCHES
William Wood Watches’ red watches for men pay homage to the brave heroes that have served in the firefighting service for decades through their unique design and colour choices.
William Wood, the grandfather of the founder of our brand, served in the British Fire Service for over 25 years, and won numerous commendations for his acts of bravery. His legacy lives on in our red watch collection, each piece of which has been expertly crafted from genuine, upcycled firefighting materials.
Whether it’s using original 1920’s British brass firefighter’s helmets and placing them on the backs of our watches or using upcycled fire hoses from our founder’s grandfather’s fire region of Tyne and Wear, we infuse each of our creations with true British firefighting history to create legacy pieces that you can wear with pride.
Browse our collection and find timeless red strap watches, red dial watches, and red-faced men’s watches that invoke the same spirit of bravery and selflessness that the world has come to expect from its noble firefighters. William Wood Watches also donates to an international firefighting charity with each timepiece sold to keep William Wood’s spirit of courage alive and well in every corner of the world.
GIVING MATERIALS A NEW LIFE
Inside all of our watches lives a melted-down 100 year old British brass firefighter’s helmet, once worn by firefighters in the 1920’s. The helmet is set inside our watch crown or caseback and is stamped with our iconic helmet logo.
