"I have learned of Pinion from the watch collecting community and was curious. Thei new, "entry level" watch, the Atom, kept popping up on my Instagram feed and looked seriously beautiful. I have made an order and received the watch in record time, with impeccable packaging, and everything in the experience conveyed the sense of an absolute respect for the customer. Pinion has definitely turned me into a loyal fan, I will be back for more."
"First class service. Beautiful watch."
"I would thoroughly recommend a Pinion watch if you're interested in a classic, British made timepiece. Something special. Pinion offer a personal service - thanks to Piers- and classic, stylish watches.
I was a bit nervous about making such a purchase without actually seeing the watch first, but I needn't have worried- I was so pleased when it arrived. The whole presentation was quality and the watch is stunning and has been much admired by friends and family. Definitely a collector's item - just need my girls to leave home now so I can save for the next one!"
"Stunning watch, great price and fast, slick service. Thank you."
"Pinion's customer service is fantastic.
I am still in the process of deciding on a watch, so I can only speak to their customer service. I contacted Pinion with several specific questions and had a response almost immediately. All of my questions were answered and Piers was a delight to correspond with; he took care to ensure that he understood my questions, and provided a thorough response so that the ordering process would be seamless given my requests. I'm confident that if I purchase a Pinion watch, I'll be well taken care of.
"Engagement with Pinnion was first and Piers was very responsive as nd supportive especially when I had to change the delivery
The presentation of the watch on delivery is first class the watch roll and individual letter being really nice touch
The watch itself seems well made and has kept good time since delivery although the rotor of the Miyota movement is somewhat noisy.
However I have rated this 4 stars due to the date function on the Atom dial it is too small to be usable especially when the font is considered which is quite cramped, the problem is much worse if the date is double digit several people I have shown the watch to have all made the same comment. I accept that the date window has been kept small to keep the dial clean and uncluttered I would say to Piers either make it usable or remove it"
"First the packaging and presentation was first class. The letter in an envelope with my first name on it was so nice. The leather watch holding wrap was such a nice touch. The watch is beautiful and I am very happy with it. Highly recommend Pinion
"A lovely watch, great packaging, quick shipping. I really like how the "box" is a very useful watch transportation device -- much better than a cardboard box. It's a great value or the price. My only disappointment was the strap. Not the one pictured in the review I saw, and rather stiff, plasticky, and fake reptile print. I quickly replaced it with a nice shell cordovan strap from RoverHaven.com. Otherwise, I'm very happy with my purchase."
"Just received my new Atom watch and, unlike other watches I have purchased online, it appears just as I thought it will when viewing in pictures. Visually quite pleasing and a perfect size. And I must say the founder could not have been more user friendly in the process. Have to say, once I opened up the package, I even thought about a second one."
"A wonderful watch. Extremely happy with my purchase. I loved the packaging, the personal service and the overall feel good factor of the experience. I was nervous of buying a watch without seeing it in person, but I'm extremely happy with my purchase!"
"The whole process of dealing with Pinion was seamless and professional. The Atom (number 46) arrived beautifully presented, and the watch itself does not disappoint! The fit and finish of a watch many times the price. I'm a very happy customer. Thanks Pinion!"
"Extremely impressed with Pinion - and just received my first watch (the Atom) earlier today. The finish and workmanship is on the level of watches 3-4X the price. The design is stunning - retro but modern and I absolutely love the packaging and presentation - including a wonderful watch roll. Well done from start to finish and I will definitely be back for another Pinion watch soon!"
"The watch is exactly as I expected, and great value for money. The care taken with the wrapping of the watch, and the watch roll, made it feel as if there should have been an extra 0 on the price!"
"Great service. Fast shipping. Watch and watch roll better than expected. Great timepiece for the price!"
"You'll read it here, you'll read it again - the personal service with Piers is a real joy! And the watch is really classy and well presented."
"I stumbled over Pinion at Hodinkee, was immediately thrilled by the appearance of the new Atom. I ordered on Saturday and the goods arrived on Tuesday. The unboxing was a treat - high quality materials, all designed with attention to detail. Part of the package was also a leather-linen carrying bag for 6 watches - nice gift. I probably will not use it, but others might like it. The Atom watch is of high build quality, I like the shape of the hands, their noble silver framing, the yellowish color of the small arabics, the wafer-like central part of the dial, the unexpectedly bright lume of the hands and the arabics. The black inner bezel to my opinion is somewhat to glossy...question of taste, of course...
The rotor of the Miyota movement is relatively loud (it was my first Miyota, I'm not used to this, but it seems normal), the accuracy is about +6s/day. And the very unique high-quality leather strap is a real eyecatcher - I love it!
So, high level english craftsmanship in the end - if you are ready to pay the relatively high price for this simple watch with a date function as the only complication and no display back and a Miyota movement for a micro brand watch - make your own choice!"
"Piers has done an excellent job as Owner of Pinion. Great product, amazing customer service, and quick shipping. It’s impossible to say enough positive words about the Pinion experience."
"As always with Pinion there is nothing to fault. The communication, the delivery and the packaging is up there with the best. Recommendation is with out doubt as I have already recommended to by best friend - who bought a Pinion. I am looking forward to future releases."
"Hi Piers, Firstly let me say how pleased I am to finally be in possession of my Atom. The quality of the watch, its appearance and presentation have all exceeded my expectations, I love the bead-blasted finish of the case, the guilloche dial centre, the clarity of the design as a whole and, particularly, the use of lume on the numerals as well as the hands. The watch was also delivered in its roll cased within a superbly wrapped wooden box. I have just one comment (and not necessarily a criticism) of the design, which relates to the date window. I find this to be rather small and too close to the '6', making it difficult to read. Whilst I don't have a dislike of date windows as some watch enthusiasts do, I would have been tempted to delete it to maintain the overall clarity of the design, or enlarge it slightly and move it up to be entirely within the guilloche'd area. I've only one real gripe with my purchase, as I accepted your kind offer of an additional strap in lieu of late delivery. Whilst the grey strap I ordered the watch on looks superb and fits well, the vintage strap you provided seems to be the larger size and sadly doesn't fit me. I've marked my purchase as four stars mainly because of the delay in delivery and the ill-fitting strap, but in reality the Atom is a five-star watch which I highly recommend. I will certainly be visiting the Pinion website on a frequent basis - sadly I missed out on the Pure II Bronze you had in your recent nearly new sale."
"The polished hands and lume effect are better than the pictures in the Internet. Indeed, it is a very elegant watch."
