Barrington Griffiths has been making watches in Calgary, Canada, using locally-made and imported parts since 2011. We are proud to say that for the past 10 years our watch cases have been manufactured by a specialty machinist in Alberta, and new this year we added a Southern Alberta craftsman to the team for the custom leather straps.
We may not be big, but that's okay. Our customers appreciate the effort we make to keep things small and local.
Our quality process starts in design, ensuring fit and compatibility of parts in a virtual model before moving into manufacturing. Physical prototypes are used to check for proportion, fit, and ergonomics in the real world. During manufacture every component is checked before being included in the assembly process.
Assembly follows a step-by-step sequence to maintain uniform quality. Assembled watches are visually inspected for defects, tested for water-resistance, and finally, timed for accuracy before they are ready to leave the shop.
We take great pride in what we do, and we want each customer to feel that same pride in the ownership of their watch. Our attention to detail and quality is backed by our One -Year Guarantee.
The Sandon Automatic is the 2nd generation BG watch to take its inspiration from the ruggedly simple railroad watch. Like those workhorse timepieces, The Sandon is built for the long haul with features such as sapphire crystals, CNC machined cases and a combination of polished and brushed finish. The handmade Horween leather straps are a perfect complement for style, comfort, and longevity.
