William Wood was the name of our Founder’s late grandfather. He was a firefighter in the British Fire Service for 25 years stationed in Newcastle on The Blue Watch. He was a true hero and was one of the first firefighters in his brigade to receive a certificate of bravery for saving 5 small children from a house fire.
His grandson Jonny Garrett created William Wood Watches to honour him and the legacy of firefighters around the world. We are now the largest firefighter inspired watchmaker and are in the top independent British watchmakers.
HELMETS & FIRE HOSE
We are proud to have upcycled firefighting history beating through every one of watches. We melt down original British brass firefighter’s helmets, worn by firefighters in the 1920’s, and set them inside our watch crowns and casebacks.
We also upcycle fire hose that has been used in real fires around the world into our luxury watch straps. Each cut of hose has its own unique texture, patina and story to tell. Rather than the fire hose being thrown into landfill, we give it a new life on your wrist.
EMERGENCY BREAK GLASS
INSPIRED BY A FIRE ALARM
Our luxury fire alarm watch box is a playful take on a fire alarm. Featuring a viewing window printed with the words break glass press here and 3 brass studs below the lid, providing a strong closing protection for the watches inside. It is the perfect travel companion for any hand luggage.
LUXURY IN EVERY STROKE
Our fire alarm watch box is executed to the highest level of craftsmanship. The box is finished in fire engine red genuine Italian leather, with an emergency break glass viewing window looking through to the watches or straps.
