Even when working on such a small scale (under 4mm) the finished engraving on all the watches I supplied was perfect. Quick turn around as well to meet my tight deadline. Great business to deal with.

We had such a good experience working with Andrew at Bay & Moor. He was easy to work with and helped trouble-shoot some design issues, resulting in a much more cost-effective and high-quality product. We're delighted and will work with him again. Thanks, Andrew!
