Hot on the heals of a successful outing at New York’s Wind-Up Watch Fair, British watch business Duckworth Prestex is ready to show his latest collections at next month’s WATCHPRO Christmas Market.

The watch show takes place in a retail store space right under the Piccadilly Circus Christmas lights on Regent Street; one of the highest footfall destinations in London from December 2-4.

Duckworth Prestex will present its full collection, including the recently-launched Belmont dive watches, which go on sale at the end of November and will be seen for the first time in the UK at WATCHPRO Market.

Belmont is Duckworth Prestex’s first divers’ watch, with water resistance to a depth of 300 metres and designed with a distinctive wave pattern on the dial (pictured top).

At the Christmas WATCHPRO Market, the brand will also show its Verimatic and Chronograph 42 ranges – as well as the more recent Bolton collection, with its notable Small Seconds version.

Duckworth Prestex was launched last year by Neil Duckworth, a veteran of the British watch industry and grandson of Frank Duckworth, who originally launched the Duckworth watch brand in the 1930s.

Mr Duckworth revived the name and launched the colourful Vermimatic three-handers and the Chronograph ranges in 2021.

“I’m incredibly proud to have given a new life to a historic British name. In buying a Duckworth Prestex watch, you’re buying into a tradition, which as a third-generation watchmaker, I’m delighted to represent. Despite our close links to the past, we’re looking firmly to the future with the latest technology and a whole new family of designs that look forward to the next hundred years,” Mr Duckworth says.
