The Olivia Burton Story

Olivia burton watches

The Olivia Burton brand was founded by Jemma and Lesa, best friends who met on their first day at the London College of Fashion. Their friendship grew through the years, fuelled by a shared love of vintage fashion and a drive to do something different. 

By 2011 both had established successful careers as fashion-buyers, but yearning for more and bursting with creativity, Jemma and Lesa quit their jobs and sat down to design their own beautiful and unique watches from the kitchen table. 

Their shared desire to create their own collections, combined with the drive to start their own company, nurtured the birth of the Olivia Burton brand as we know it today.

Olivia Burton was Lesa’s great aunt, a woman whose passion, drive and energy were an inspiration for the pair, and in 2012, after a great deal of hard work, the first Olivia Burton collection was launched.

Now well established, and working from a pretty East London studio, Jemma and Lesa continue to develop the brand, through collaboration with their small team, who design and create their fabulous timepieces. 

With a flair for stylish, elegant and feminine designs, inspired by vintage finds as well as modern trends, the Olivia Burton collections continue to delight and enchant, embodying the delicate delights of nature, through intricately hand-drawn bees, flowers, butterflies and a host of other flora and fauna. These breath-taking designs, combined with the innovative use of quality materials, are expressed through exquisite craftmanship giving us the meticulously beautiful timepieces Olivia Burton are known for.  

The Olivia Burton Company, much like its namesake, dares to be different!



Allum & Sidaway are delighted to partner with Olivia Burton, to bring you these delightful watch collections. 

With a choice of vegan leather or leather watch straps and metal bracelets in a range of attractive colours, these collections are both eye-catching and wearable. The leather straps boast an array of colours, from black to delicate hues of blue, grey, cream, pink, lilac, shimmer pearl, or blush. 

The mesh boucle bracelets are available in stainless steel and plated rose or yellow gold. The watch dials vary in size and colour, some bejewelled, others decorated with flowers or delicate engravings.


Under the Sea

The watches in the Under the Sea collection epitomise the glimmer and glitter of the shimmering blue ocean and the warmth and beauty of an ombre sunset. 

Names like Mermaid tale, Deep Sea and Wishing wave aptly capture the essence of the water and the artistic use of colours, sparkling elements and iridescent pearl leather creates a simply breath-taking collection.


Marble Florals

The Marble Florals collection features flower represented in watercolour and marble, as well as beautiful vibrant blooms of Parma violet, pink, rose and the stunning shades of summer in this enchanted garden of a collection. 

Delicate hummingbirds, dragonflies, butterflies and birds are imaginatively represented on the dials and cases of these watches, as well as the majestic celestial sparkle of the evening and night skies.


We Love Bees 

Bee and nature lovers will adore this collection of bee-inspired designs. Designs incorporating 3D bees, Queen bees and bees with sparkling crystal-embellished wings, or delicately engraved stripes, are set into glimmering sunray or Mother of Pearl dials.
