Surrounded by family involved in engineering, textiles, automotive industries & even professional motorsport,

I have an ingrained passion for cars and design.


Since childhood I wanted to be a car designer, and today I enjoy customising or restoring cars in my spare time.
The same can be said for watches, I have always been intrigued by them in the same way as my love for cars, collecting watches from a young age. The idea for Grip Auto came about when I, a car enthusiast, was shopping for a drivers watch, and was quick to discover that finding a quality watch in this style was not a simple task as most watch brands didn’t cater for this genre. When I did find them, they were quite expensive or near unobtainable.


In considering the number of enthusiasts that exist versus if they can afford these genres of watches or even obtain them, there was an imbalance.

I wanted to have a watch(es) that matched my lifestyle and passion for cars. With a bit more research I soon discovered microbrands and was quick to learn behind these newly existing microbrands was mostly individuals that were simply passionate about watches and creating their own unique timepieces.

There and then I went down the rabbit hole and knew this is what I wanted to do. Having a passion for design and cars, I decided to create a concept of my ideal watch and designed several sketches for fun.

And I was hooked. Here was a timepiece designed for niche groups of enthusiasts. Offering a sense of exclusivity that the average person will look at curiously wanting to know what they're wearing. Utilising high quality components and materials, striking designs and affordability.

At Grip Auto the customer is the hero, we are a brand created by enthusiasts for enthusiasts. We don’t just sell watches; we are a lifestyle.
