New Look In-Store and Online

Welcome to the H.L. Brown Group newsletter. Here are our latest updates…

A sympathetic refurbishment of our James Usher shop in Lincoln has been completed. The shop is adjacent to the historic Stonebow monument, and therefore a considerable sensitivity in design was required.

JamesUsher 2

A subtle mix of marble flooring and carpet has been used to give the shop a more modern interior.  There are new showcases to enhance the amount of jewellery and watches on display inside the shop.

The large mahogany end wall cabinets are retained, preserving the heritage of the shop. The frontage is a softer, more appealing colour than hitherto.

James Usher will continue to be a Lincoln institution. Come and see the results!

Alpine Sports Watch Manufacturing – Since 1883

Alpina was brought to life in 1883, when Swiss watch making visionary and alpinist Gottlieb Hauser founded the “Alpina Swiss Watchmakers Corporation”, and in doing so united the leading Swiss independent watchmakers, who became known as the “Alpinists”.

Initially, the Corporation was developed to optimise the manufacturing of movements and watches by forming a union of manufacturers and suppliers, but Alpina soon producing in-house calibers. In the 1920s, Alpina was already being sold in 2,000 outlets worldwide, an exceptional figure for those days. It is no exaggeration to say that Alpina was one of the first leading manufacturers of Swiss watches.

Introducing Brett Heath, Sheffield’s New Store Manager

_DSC3932 small

As the saying goes, “if you’re good enough, you’re old enough”. At the age of 30 Brett Heath becomes the youngest manager H L Brown jewellers has engaged at its head shop in Barker’s Pool, Sheffield.

After 6 month’s training under previous manager John Molyneux (who is retiring after 27 years in the role), Brett assumed the position in August with the full confidence of the Board of H L Brown.

“Mr Heath is an extremely capable, dedicated and engaging person” says James Frampton, Managing Director. “He is well regarded by the staff for a host of qualities which are rarely found in a person of his age.”

Brett joined H L Brown’s Lincoln store, James Usher jewellers, in 2007 after some experience with Ernest Jones.  He quickly passed his retail jewellers’ Diploma and became assistant manager of James Usher in 2011. He qualified as an “Ambassador” for the Omega watch brand in 2012 after training in Greenwich.

Brett is currently commuting from Lincoln to Sheffield on a daily basis.  He is looking to move to reside in Sheffield with his wife Lucy and young son Thom. “I am looking forward to becoming part of the Sheffield community” says Brett. “H L Brown customers have been very friendly and welcoming. I am sure the same will be true of my soon-to-be neighbours in Sheffield”

Attainments_DSC3938 small.jpg
“Great customer service has always been a priority of mine and I look to bring what I have
already learnt into my new role and pass this on to the rest at H.L Brown, continuing what you have all come to expect from us. A great experience for all.I hope to build strong relationships with our existing customers and develop new long lasting friendships.

The brands we stock are also very important to me and as mentioned I am an Omega “Ambassador”. I have also recently been on a training courses with Rolex and Italian jewellery brand FOPE.

I am happy to introduce these brands as well as many others such as Longines, Oris, Tissot and Raymond Weil to name a few.”

“I always enjoy listening to music of all genres, fine dining and the theatre, including musical theatre. Visiting museums and art galleries.As my son Thom gets older I hope for us to get involved in climbing, Sheffield will be the perfect base for this to happen, with its surrounding geography.”

Why I enjoy the jewellery and watch trade
“I became interested at an early age, with my mother also being in the trade. I have a passion for design and fashion, working with both jewellery and watches I get to view the latest designs and play a part in creating unique, bespoke pieces.I appreciate the mix of form and function, items that both look good and have a use. Like a piece of art that you can wear.I am naturally drawn towards the mechanics of watches and the cross between traditional techniques with modern designs. There is always lots to learn  within the trade and that excites me.”
