David R Bill & Sons has been a leading and excellent performer in Great British design and craftsmanship, founded by David Roy Bill in 1962.
David pursued his keen interest in horology at the age of 15, by first learning the restoration of luxury timepieces at Banda's in Clerkenwell Road, London. By the time he was 18, he joined the army where he completed 2 years of service. Upon leaving the army, he joined Swiss Co working for Mr. Gerner.
In 1956 David moved to Pittsburgh USA working for Kirk Dial, a very experienced dial artisan who taught him the foundations of dial restoration. In 1957 his progress did not go unnoticed and Kirk Dial offered David the chance to manage his own workshop in Texas but politely declined, deciding instead to return to London to raise a family.
It was then that he started his own dial restoration company, David R Bill & Sons in London's Clerkenwell Road, and finally in 1972 the business was relocated to just outside of London in the county of Essex.
This current day, David Bill’s grandson Christopher Bill owns and runs Bill & Sons Ltd, using many of the original techniques that has been passed down through three generations whilst continually learning and growing with modern methods.
