About

Hanbury Is A Watch Brand, Based In The United Kingdom, Created In 2017 By Paul Masters. To Pre-order This Automatic And Bring It To Life, Click Back This Project.  

Over the last 2 years, we've been designing, prototyping and testing the automatic watch from the ground up, resulting in our first self-winding watch ever. It's durable, reliable and different. The Automatic is a true spirit of independence.  

The Hanbury Automatic is full of features, as illustrated in the images below. 

 And there's more.   

 Alright, let's take a look into the ROOTS of the Automatic features:   





 Brushed & Polished. 40mm Diameter. 

Made from strong 316L Stainless Steel, the automatic case is 40mm in Diameter, 12mm in Thickness & 45mm Lug to Lug, offering strength, durability, comfort and a long-lasting visual appearance.     






EACH DIAL IS UNIQUE, NO TWO WATCHES ARE THE SAME.

The Automatic dials are available in White Maple Wood & Natural Oak with more options to come. Applied hour-markers and Super-LumiNova® coating on the hour & minute hands.    







Swiss-made Sellita SW200-1.

Selecting the movement is not something to compromise, after all, it's the beating heart of the watch. The Automatic is driven by a Swiss-made self-winding movement, (caliber SW200-1) made by Sellita.   

This movement is precise, reliable and robust, typically you find this high-end movement in watches 3 times the price, it requires no battery and is instead powered by the natural movements of your wrist.  






Anti-Reflective Domed Sapphire Crystal.

To complete the Automatic, we've opted for Sapphire crystal, It’s scratch resistant & the second hardest material next to diamond. We've added multiple layers of anti-reflective coating to the inside so you have a crystal clear view of the wood dial.      






Revealing the heart of the watch.

Stainless steel with integrated flat Sapphire crystal, 4 stainless steel screws with polished heads.    






The automatic is undoubtedly our biggest and most important launch to date, and we couldn't be more proud to present this.     



Introducing... 

Classic By Nature, Individualistic By Design.  

The Automatic Silver Edition is a seriously impressive watch, featuring our signature white maple wooden dial & styled with a strong stainless steel case, finished in a combination of brushed and polished detailing. 






Exclusive to Kickstarter, A Stylish Fusion of Wood & Steel.

The Automatic Black Edition is a distinctive watch, characterised by its natural oak dial & Black IP coated stainless steel case.      

The Silver Edition & Black Edition are available as standard with either our NEW H-Link Bracelet, Italian Leather Strap or Milanese Mesh.






The first 500 pieces of the Hanbury Automatic will be individually numbered and limited editions. First-backed, first-served, meaning the earlier you back us the lower number you will receive.  

Please note that your backer number does not indicate the number you will receive, due to the way the production is set and since some backers can order multiple watches.

Hello, I’m Paul Masters, the founder and creator behind Hanbury. I’m based in Worcestershire (like the sauce) in the heart of the UK. From a young age it's always been my dream to run my own business. I had no idea what that business would be but I knew it was something I had to do. A few years later I developed a passion for watches and design.

In 2016 I sat down with my father to discuss my ideas (Hanbury). We came up with a business plan and discussed names, concepts and everything else I needed in place to get started. I live near Hanbury Woods so naturally, I decided to go with that name.

After spending hundreds of hours designing the watches an idea came to me to create a traditional Stainless Steel watch but with handcrafted dials made from various types of real wood, this was my best idea and design feature which led to the successful launch of the Hanbury brand.

Early in 2017 I needed at least £10,000 to help start the business. I tried to secure a bank loan but that didn't get approved. I then found Kickstarter, Kickstarter is a platform that allows entrepreneurs and designers to not only present ideas, but also to test the market to see if people (backers) like it and are willing to invest in it.

I filmed a video with a friend and with the help of Kickstarter Hanbury was launched! After 14 days I successfully reached my funding goal and by the end of the campaign, I reached £16,464 with the help of 134 backers, Thank you all so much.

I went to work and delivered all of the watches on time in early 2018. I’ve since gained so much more experience at shows, exhibitions and events and have learned a lot. It’s really been an incredible journey. I’ve attended over 50 outdoor shows across the UK showcasing my brand and I recently received an invite by The Game Fair to exhibit in Qatar where my brand and watches were viewed by members of the Qatari Royal Family.

If someone asked me today, what is Hanbury? What is the message? I would say Hanbury is an independent UK watch brand, supported and backed by individuals from all over the world that believe in something a little different.





We stand firmly behind our watches; We feel so comfortable with our quality, that we offer a Two Year International Warranty against any manufacturer defects.


If we hit these further funding goals we'll be able to add an extra model variation, and include an extra strap with your watch.


At Hanbury, we believe in a greener future. We recognise that it is our responsibility to monitor our carbon footprint but also look out for the well-being of the people who contribute to Hanbury, ensuring we succeed at the expense of nobody.

From day one when I started the company, I wanted to find a (root) to give back. Hanbury then later partnered with Trees for the Future and pledges to plant 5 trees with each watch purchase. To date, we have now planted over 5000 trees.







Risks and challenges

This is our 2nd Kickstarter project since 2017. Throughout the last 2 years of managing the company, we’ve been very good at setting accurate expectations and delivering on our promises.

This is our first mechanical watch, taking it from prototype to finished production models will have its challenges, if things go awry, we solemnly promise to give you full transparency into the issues and solve them in a way that leaves our backers happy and proud to support our company.
