Presenting Glashutte Watches at Harrods London

Gentlemen and fellow followers,


The summer is slowly coming to London and for us watch enthusiasts there are plenty of events happening. Glashütte Original, German Watchmaking Art since 1845, has set up shop in the Fine Watch Room of Harrods and is providing to us fellow Londoners, their expertise in manufacturing chronographs. The exhibition is on until the 24th of June 2015 so do go and visit them.

One of the main centre pieces is the “Wondertable” showcasing the individual components of Glashütte Calibre 37. The in-house chronograph movement Calibre 37 was presented for the first time in 2014.

The Calibre 37 is at the heart of two of their main timepieces namely: Senator Chronograph Panorama Date and the Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date. The movement was the first Glashütte Original had conceived and built inhouse specifically as a chronograph, power reserve of 70 hours and the simplified movement has increased stability which resulted in improved time keeping.

Fellow followers, should you be looking for a classic timepiece for that next important meeting do have a look at the Senator Chronograph Panorama Date. All hands are in blued steel and the dial is framed by an elegant bezel. The case is satin brushed and polished in either platinum or red gold. The Senator Chronograph Panorama Date fits well on a tailored suit.

If on the other hand you are looking for a timepiece which has a more sportier feel to it, then the Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date could be your next timepiece. It features a polished and soft cornered square bezel and the satin brushed case in stainless steel brings back the vintage look and feel. It is a nice luxury time piece for a less formal event and would go well with chinos and a shirt as the summer is just around the corner.

Gentlemen and fellow followers, connoisseurs and watch enthusiasts, you are all cordially invited to visit Glashütte Original exhibition at the Fine Watch Room of Harrods in Knightsbridge.

Luxury Shopping – London


After visiting Geneva for some luxury shopping in our last post, it is time to visit the “The Big Smoke”, also known as London for some vintage and luxury shopping.


London has several distinct retail districts and shopping streets, many of which have their own themes or specialities. From luxury goods in Mayfair to quirky finds in Covent Garden, to large shopping centres like Westfield.

In terms of luxury shopping Mayfair is the place to visit. From Louis Vuitton Maison to Marc Jacob flagship store. The exclusive nature of the Bond Street and Mayfair area is exactly want us gentlemen need. Savile Row is renowned for its custom tailoring, so gentlemen if you are looking for that new suit or pair of shoes then Savile Row is the place to go.

If you happen to be more in the West of the city, in the Knightsbridge area, then you should definitely go and visit Harrods, the upmarket and luxury department store.


If on the other hand you don`t have the time to go down to the west end; then you must visit the long established department store in London – Liberty. Located in between Oxford Circus and Piccadilly Circus, definitely worth the visit.

So gentlemen, if you are looking for some high end shopping, London is definitely a city worth spending several days in.
