Our History

Doncaster business, Bell Brothers joined the H L Brown family group of stores back in the 1920s and two separate stores were situated in Doncaster. And subsequently they came to reside in the store’s current location together in 2014, at the Frenchgate Shopping Centre.

First established in 1781, Bell Brothers was founded by well-respected watchmaker Joseph Bell. Joseph worked for some time under the famous horologist Thomas Mudge, who was the inventor of the ‘lever escapement’. This feature was applied to pocket watches and remains an important part of every mechanical pocket or wristwatch made ever since. H L Brown’s watchmaking business was founded in Sheffield in 1861 by Harris Leon Brown, who came from Poland to work as a watchmaker.

A major refurbishment took place in Spring 2023 and the store is now known solely as H L Brown Doncaster.
