Each of our personalised watches are customised here at Ellie Ellie HQ in Sussex using original vintage maps. The personalisation ideas are endless and entirely up to you!
The locations are what it’s all about, here are some ideas to get the ball rolling: recipient’s hometown, or the town where their children were born, university city, or the place where they studied, the place where you first met each other, where you got engaged, married or honeymooned!
All our maps are authentic and therefore will differ slightly from the photograph in colour, scale and age. Please do not use postcodes or anything that is unlikely to appear on a vintage map such hotels, a local monument or a private property. If our guidelines are not followed, it can slow down the production time of your item and can risk your order being delayed, so we do advise opting for a city, town or large village where possible. If we cannot find your specific location, our team will choose a map to cover the area of it using their knowledge of our map range to make the very best product we can.
Our preview service* enables you to see the map before we make the product, allowing us to work together to create your vision. This can be especially useful if you have a tricky location choice. You will receive three options chosen by our production team (who have many years of map picking experience!) of the very best maps available for your location(s). If they cannot find maps of your location, they will provide you with a range of the best maps we can find covering the chosen area. Simply pick your favourite and we will turn it/them into your order! If we receive no response from our preview email within three days we will go ahead without confirmation.
*Please note, our preview service is non-refundable.
The location will be set off centre to prevent it being obscured by the hands of the watch. Our watches come in their own Ellie Ellie watch box for that finishing touch.
