We found out about Hagley West watches a few days ago and we were super inspired by the story of how the company was founded. The CEO Tim Hayden became an overnight sensation on TikTok. Yes, he managed to promote his business on TikTok and all of his videos went viral. Currently, he has almost 345K followers and 9.3M likes.
“No two journeys are the same, whether they be emotional, physical, mental or spiritual: but every journey is marked by time.”
Tim Hayden, the founder of the company, is a former captain of the cricket team West Hagley CC. Inspired by the team, he found support in the cricketing community which helped him to promote the brand. And this is how the Hagley West journey began.
On his travel to Jamaica, Tim Hayden met of the greatest cricketers of all time, Chris Gayle. Inspired by his journey and sharing the same passion for watches, Chris decided to join the company. Together, they have a common purpose and that purpose is to take on the overpriced and outdated fashion watch industry.
Things to achieve
The company set out to achieve 3 main goals. First, to design stylish minimalist watches with an industrial twist. Secondly, to ensure affordability without compromising on quality. Last but not least, to become the most transparent watch company in the world.
The world’s most transparent watch company
“We want you to live every moment of our journey with us.”
The company is located in Northamptonshire, United Kingdom. Being a startup, the HQ is currently situated in Tim’s kitchen. From there he is able to share every step of the journey and the HW community loves it. This is also the reason why Tim’s videos are popular on most social platforms, especially on TikTok.
Hagley West collections
Currently, the product has 3 collections: Original, Chrono, and ‘333’.
In June 2020, the company unveil 13 exciting new watches, all of them having original designs. This new range includes 8 redesigned Chronographs and 5 ‘333’ Chris Gayle inspired watches.
If you decide to order one of these beautiful watches, you will receive the product in a brand new and improved watch box.

All watches come with interchangeable straps and the Chronograph sub-dials are a 24-hour clock, 60-minute timer, and 60-second timer. Also, the watches are backed with a warranty. Hagley West is confident with the quality and durability of its product, so if anything happens within the first 2 years, you can send back the watch. It’s good to know that the warranty covers any issues with all internal parts.
Would 100% Recommend it!
Tim is exceptional at what he does, the customer service he provides makes you feel special, not some large corporation, handwritten thank you cards, amazing quality watches. His personality is allowing the brand to thrive and it will keep thriving. As Tim always says “Love your Journey”.
Wonderful experience and a great purchase excellent value for money fast reliable service will be buying more in the future.
One of the best watchmakers in the mid-range market.
An exceptionally nice watch, possibly the best in the market of mid-range watches. Has a bit of trouble changing the wrist size with the link pins but sorted it in the end. The box came slightly damaged but that could’ve been the post courier’s fault I expect. However, I could not recommend more to people to try Hagley West, even though they are a new start-up they produce watches of high quality, sleek and elegant design.
