Somlo Antiques is London’s leading dealer of antique pocket watches and vintage wristwatches, with a collection that spans early 16th Century pre-balance spring watches, fine quality enamels, complicated repeaters and Art Deco cocktail watches.
Somlo’s Burlington Arcade store also serves as the world’s first and only Omega Vintage Boutique, carrying vintage jewellery watches, wristwatches and pocket watches, each sold with a two-year Omega Vintage guarantee and certificate of authenticity. It also offers repairs and restoration services for timepieces made before 1970.
The Vintage Watch Company specialises in Rolex wristwatches from 1910-1970, with a collection that spans over 1,000 pieces.
Owner David Silver is a global authority on vintage Rolexes, and each timepiece is sensitively restored in-house at the company’s state-of-the-art workshop by a Rolex-trained watchmaker.
The company has particular expertise in Rolex sports watches, which date from 1950 onwards, and the history of each design is captivating. Look out for the first Submariner (later coined the James Bond) or the GMT Master, which was made for Pan Am’s transatlantic pilots.
A specialist in pre-owned fine Swiss watches, Armour-Winston was established in 1953 and has been owned and run by the same family for three generations.
The company buys and sells brands including Rolex, Patek Philippe, Cartier, Jaeger-LeCoultre and Panerai, as well as a selection of fine jewellery.
The knowledgeable team is also skilled in sourcing hard-to-find, second-hand timepieces.
Swiss watchmaker Bell & Ross draws inspiration from the history of aviation and the military specifications that accompany it.
The company, whose shareholders include Chanel, works with astronauts, pilots, bomb disposal experts and divers to analyse the demands of extreme events.
The result is a collection of high-performance timepieces that deliver on function as well as covetable form – collaborations with streetwear brands like A Bathing Ape keep it firmly at the top of the style agenda.
