Watches of Switzerland story begins in 1924 with a gentleman named Maurice Lane, who forms a company selling watches by mail order. G&M Lane & Co as Watches of Switzerland was originally known, opens its first office at 26 Ludgate Hill, in the City of London.

By the 1960s, Watches of Switzerland builds a reputation for selling the finest Swiss watches and offering an unrivalled standard of service. As a result of this, leading luxury Swiss watch brands began advertising its collaboration with Watches of Switzerland, the beginning of our strong brand partnerships.

In the 90th year of Watches of Switzerland, the “Golden Triangle” is launched with the opening of a flagship showroom at 155 Regent Street, Europe’s largest showroom devoted to luxury watches – a feat of both staggering design and horological excellence – followed by the launch of a store on Oxford Street in October 2015 and Knightsbridge in June 2016.

In 2018, Watches of Switzerland went international and now has showrooms spanning seven states including New York, New Jersey, Nevada, Massachusetts, Texas, Minnesota and Ohio.
