Services at Kartel

Watch Making: at Kartel, you can even create your own, engraved watch using their designs and components. You’ll be guided through your watch build by a master watchmaker, and, once you’ve decided on a message for the case back – which can even be handwritten –  you’ll be helped to operate the engraving machine. Finally, you’ll choose the casing and strap for your unique watch. Book your watchmaking appointment – or book one as a gift –  here.


Kartel was founded in 2014 and has grown steadily ever since, now boasting a successful online business and two stores in Scotland alongside this, their first London store.

Alongside their exquisite watches, the brand sells high quality acetate sunglasses and accessories.
