We have sold, created, repaired and cared for some of the finest watches and jewellery in the last 65 years. John Gowing Jewellers help to ensure that craftsmanship is kept very much alive in British jewellery and watch making.

John Gowing is an independent jewellers and watch specialist with a wealth of knowledge and a focus on delivering exceptional customer service. We have a shop located in the heart of Oxford’s famous Covered Market, where you can browse our full range at your leisure.

Our reputation is based on an eye for exquisite detail, elegance and innovation. The founder of the business, John Gowing Senior, was a master watchmaker and trained his son John, the current owner, in the watchmakers art. John furthered his traditional watchmaking knowledge at the famous CFH school in Lausanne, Switzerland, and then went on to study gemmology at Sir John Cass College in London.
