We are the UK’s leading independent watch retailer stocking the world’s premium Swiss-made luxury watch brands. With a range carefully curated by our team of in-house experts, we have the knowledge and passion to help guide you through choosing that perfect timepiece.
Whether you are shopping online at www.thewatchgallery.com, in our London (Westfield or Chelsea ) stores, at The Watch Gallery luxury concessions in Selfridges (London and Manchester) or in our Rolex boutique at One Hyde Park (Europe’s largest Rolex store), you will receive the same exceptional level of service throughout the business.
Launched in 1985 by fine watch collector H.R.H Prince Ernst of Hanover, ‘The Watch Gallery’ was known amongst collectors as a world leading destination watch boutique, due to the personality and expertise of its exuberant founder. Our iconic Fulham Road store was the first UK stockist for brands including Bremont, Hublot, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Panerai, Audemars Piguet, Blancpain and Ebel and it was this passion for discovering new brands which ensured the business thrived as a destination store for international watch collectors. In 2012, The Watch Gallery was acquired and relaunched by independent watch specialist DM London.
