ATOM Watches was founded on a vision to make timeless mechanical timepieces at honest prices.

We aim to produce watches that create positive emotions through considered design and precise manufacturing, underpinned by our three core values:


Honesty is key. We do not manufacture in house. Instead, we work with a carefully selected, high-quality partner base who share our passion and beliefs.


Commitment to Excellence
Being an independent microbrand, all watches are designed and engineered in house. They are never rushed, ensuring no corners are cut. The result: the production of high quality, beautifully designed timepieces that stand the test of time.  


Sustainable Design
We challenge ourselves to minimise our impact on the planet and ensure the sustainability of our products, packaging, and journey to recipients.

Based in the historical city of York, England, ATOM Watches was founded by Karl Moran, an industrial designer with a passion for watches. Karl has always had a particular empathy for design having worked with market leaders in architecture, fashion, and furniture. This experience has given Karl the solid foundation to pursue his ambition of starting his own watch microbrand.
