Welcome to RC Watches 


About Us

We are currently a successful e-retailer that specialises in luxury watches. We deal in some of the finest brands on the market; including Rolex, Audemars Piguet, Cartier and IWC.

We are currently based in an office based within the heart of London. However, we have big plans to open our first boutique, in the area of West Wickham, Kent.

We have fund raised from enthusiastic friends and family to allocate money for the refit. We have mail shot existing customers for feed back on our plans and to find out what they would consider to be the ideal shopping experience, this is important as it is more for them than us.

So far the company has been built purely on personal funding and run by a Father and Son team, with a strong passion for luxury watches and horology. Collectively we have over 15 years experience combined in trading luxury watches and over 80% of our business comes from recommendations. We have even supplied watches to premiership footballers!


Our Impact

Offering watches to both trade and private has been beneficial thus far, we have learned a lot about the market trends and demand throughout the years. Offering watches in store will broaden our business to the next level. We aim to be a strong presence within the market, by operating on all platforms, maintaining good customer service with on-going attractive pricing, we believe that we will not only continue to strengthen our trade ties, but will build a fantastic retail base also.

Although online shopping has become extremely popular, still less than 30% of watch sales are completed online. Our research tells us that 95% of private customers seeking to purchase a pre-owned watch will want to actively view and try a watch on before purchasing.

The shop will also enable us services we cannot currently offer. At the moment, the only long term payment option we can accept is payment via credit card, therefore we will be offering finance options also.

In addition, from store we will branch further into trade-in and watch purchase. It is well known that individuals wishing to sell their watches feel reluctant to send their watches in the post before receiving any money. Therefore with a shop, we can take out the risk from either party and offer the trade-in or sale at the time, as we can do all check, inspections and valuations in house.

We have also secured partnership with a watch club company. Their focus is to offer the rarest and most finite watch models, to hire throughout the year. They wish to rent window space and place some of there pieces in the window. This will again create further footfall and advertise our business and other services, to the watch club's already established customer base.
