Lovely looking watch which comes with 2 years warranty.
One of the lowest prices since 2015

The only thing is Roman IV which is written like IIII, but many watch manifacturers do it for some reason.

Nice looking watch, thanks for posting @iliko
Looking at the all too familiar unrealistic RRP, I am guessing this is another mushroom brand leveraging a “name”?
"The only thing is Roman IV which is written like IIII, but many watch manifacturers do it for some reason."

Watches with Roman numerals have always shown the "4" as IIII, apparently it's for aesthetic balance!
Myeah, it's leveraging the name. But hey, as long as you're happy with the looks it's a good price.

too true. it seems that the rrp is around twice the actual selling price and the sale price tends to be around 30% of that selling price. - the same for almost any watch brand on amazon from my experience.

this watch has been sold at an average of .£100

The company has long history and started with marine chronographs.
It's a nasty chinese cased quartz watch with a bargain basement jap movement in it. This has nothing to do with the name sake on the face of the watch. It is basically utter tat designed to part fools from their money under the pretense they are getting something of quality.

Thomas Earnshaw appears to be little more than a registered trademark of a Chinese company by the name of Solar Time Limited.

Do you have a link to the evidence of the Manufacturers long history and background in marine chronographs?

So we have the watches being sold via a UK registered company whose two directors live in Hong Kong. Did you look at the financials? If you think there is a genuine connection between "the" Thomas Earnshaw and these Chinese made watches, then you are I suspect very wrong.

Did you read the Media page? Lots of links to adverts in high end magazines and a review describing the Thomas Earnshaw watches the reviewer received Free of Charge as being Chinese Made (stamped Made in China), with a plasticy face and misaligned hour hand? Albeit the manufacturer describes the face as "film".

That said, assuming the company has no tangible presence in the UK, I note you need to return your watch to a.n.other watch repairer in Broseley House, 116 Bradshawgate. Google Street View throws up a rather unappealing image of an unkept grey looking block sandwiched between an Iceland, a generic "we buy anything for cash" shop, a hearing aid centre and coffee shop.

Let us know how you get on. Thanks
