Clever (C)locks
Standing proudly at the front of our shop, the walnut-gilded longcase clock has been greeting customers since the mid-17th century. Made by Daniel Quare, it is a rare example of how clocks were used as astronomical aids. The two central rings carry three sets of numbers showing the time of sunrise, sunset and the civil and astronomical day. It may chime out of sync today but it remains a focal point of curiosity for those who visit our shop.
The Art of Making a Lock Panama
Panamas date back to the 16th century but have stood the test of time to become the most covetable form of summer headwear. Locks' hail from Ecuador, crafted from indigenous Paja Toquilla which is harvested and blessed by the grower, before being woven by local artisans. Our Panamas are famed for their fine weave and can have up to 30 vueltas (concentric circles of palm) as well as a cigar stamp inside the crown to denote the weaver's approval of quality. The hand-blocking process that follows allows Lock to determine the shape of the crown and width of brim, making each piece as stylish as the next.
