A former Northumberland garage owner is motoring in a completely new career, after swapping automotive engineering for watch making.
Glen Anthony Jobling, from Bedlington , has more than 30 years experience in the vintage and modern motoring industry but he has now turned his interest in design watches into a new business.
Mr Jobling was inspired to change his career as a successful garage owner in North Tyneside in 2015, after making a watch for a friend while mulling over his options for a career change.
Glen Anthony Watches (GA) has now officially launched with a range of men’s and women’s watches, which are designed, manufactured and assembled at his workshop in Wansbeck Business Park in Northumberland .
All the parts of the watch are handmade on site by Mr Jobling except the Swiss movement, which he has sourced to meet his specific requirements.
The watches are influenced by his love of all things mechanical and automotive, with designs inspired by the craftsmanship of the vintage cars he used to restore, as well as high tech materials of the latest sports cars.
