Six Watch Brands That Will Build the Personalized Watch of Your Dreams

In this feature, we examine the two opposing ends of the spectrum, on one hand looking at brands that have developed a streamlined digital approach to the customization process, and on the other we look at a handful of watchmaking houses that are more than happy to flex their creative muscles to craft a timepiece that’s entirely unique to your specification.
