Harrods launches a collection of rare vintage watches in its Fine Watch Room

Vintage watch lovers should head to Harrods Fine Watch Room, where rare timepieces by brands including Omega and Rolex form part of the Vintage Watch Collection

The Vintage Watch Collection in Harrods' Fine Watch Room features limited-edition and rare vintage Omega watches including the Omega Chronometer and Seamaster DeVille

The fashion set's appetite for anything vintage will be further sated by the news that Harrods is launching a vintage section in its Fine Watch Room, hot on the heels of the renovation and extension of its Fine Jewellery Room.

The store's expert in-house buying team has curated an impressive line-up, which includes limited-edition and rare vintage Rolex and Omega watches.

With a mix of men's and women's timepieces, the Vintage Watch Collection will further enhance the Fine Watch Room's status as a world-class destination for luxury watches.

Five categories of vintage watches, with prices ranging from £750-£39,000, will be available along with a customisation service offering a selection of colourful alligator straps.

The Rolex timepieces on offer include the iconic Rolex GMT Master, which was first developed for pilots in the 1940s and 50s and has appeared in Hollywood films such as 'Ocean's Thirteen'. It is joined by the Rolex Submariner, which was sported by Sean Connery in early James Bond films, and the classic Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date, which has universal cross-generational appeal.

The Omega selection is made up of the classic Seamaster DeVille, which has become synonymous with Mad Men character Don Draper, and three more casual Omega Seamasters. The focal point of the ladies' collection is an elegant yellow-gold Bueche-Girod, a style first produced in the 1960s, which has now become a collector's item.

As always, Harrods' Fine Watch team is on hand to offer customers expert advice and an impeccable after-sales service.

The Jewellery Editor is for sale

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
