The luxury watch industry may have seen better days but the lure of expensive wrist-trophies doesn’t appear to have waned at iconic London department store Harrods, which is getting ready to host its first-ever storewide fine watch takeover.
From 1 July to mid-August the legendary retailer plans to shine a light on the heroes of horology with an exhibition titled Made with Love and Precision. During the six-week stint, a group of the world’s finest watch brands including Omega, Bremont and Panerai will launch no fewer than 23 timepieces exclusively at Harrods. Each model will be on display in the Brompton Road windows as oversized versions and in a dedicated space in the Fine Watch Room.
If that wasn’t a big enough draw, brands will also be running interactive activities for customers, including engraving workshops and watchmaking demonstrations.
Need advice on what to remortgage your house for? We suggest Omega’s Speedmaster Grey Side of the Moon Meteorite, which features an innovative meteorite dial at £9,875. Or for sheer extravagance, part ways with £29,000 to walk out with Breguet’s Classique 7337 – the first ever edition of this particular model to feature a blue dial.
Made with Love and Precision will run at Harrods, London, from 1 July to mid-August, 2016.
