About Us

Du Maurier Watches is a young, vibrant company producing luxury, Swiss-made watches.

We are a young company but with a heritage dating back centuries. The company's founders are Ned du Maurier Browning (Daphne du Maurier's grandson) & his wife, Marianna. Du Maurier Watches is the result of their passion for timepieces that offer affordable style, sophistication & luxury.

The inspiration for our beautiful designs is drawn from generations of the du Maurier family & their achievements. Ned's grandmother, Daphne, wrote many books & short stories including the famous gothic novel 'Rebecca'. The place we were inspired to begin our story was with her two most luminous & memorable characters from that book, Maxim & Rebecca.

The design process to bring about our first stunning collection took over two years and the elegant Maxim Black and Daphne Signature has followed hot on its heels.

Our aim is to design beautiful, English classics which will give you many years of enjoyment. We design all of our watches exclusively in-house taking inspiration from the wide scope of incredibly vibrant characters found within the du Maurier heritage.

Our quintessentially English designs are partnered with the finest Swiss-made movements to create truly prestige watches. They are designed with the utmost attention to detail & crafted using only the finest materials such as rose gold, diamonds & sapphire glass.

Each watch is launched as part of an exclusive, limited edition run of between 50 and 300 pieces, making every Du Maurier first edition watch a highly collectable timepiece.

Ned, our co-founder & head designer, spent every summer with his grandmother, Daphne, until she passed away in 1989. He knows she would have been so excited and intrigued to see her characters inspire his first unique designs. Du Maurier Watches now continues the family legacy by working to produce fabulous watches that we sincerely believe will become classics of their time.
