Duckworth Prestex springs surprise Autumn collection in time for WATCHPRO Salon

0

Duckworth Prestex is building on early momentum since it launched its first watches in May by adding a third collection ahead of Christmas.

The Bolton collection — named after the home town for the original Prestex watch company from the 1920s until it closed in the 1960s — comes in three versions.

They use the same cushion shaped steel case design as the Duckworth Prestex Verimatic range.

There is an automatic using the Miyota 9039 automatic movement, a quartz chronograph and a quartz small seconds in the Bolton collection.

Each has a dial inspired by a Prestex pocket watch made by the grandfather of Duckworth Prestex owner Neil Duckworth.

Bolton watches are expected to have their worldwide launch at WATCHPRO Salon in November.

Duckworth Prestex has been warmly welcomed by retailers. The brand is already on sale with Watches of Switzerland, Beaverbrooks, Jura, Urban Armour in Norfolk and Alsal in London with more stockists coming on every week, according to Mr Duckworth.
