Harrods has teamed up with ten luxury watch brands this month to showcase a range of limited edition watches exclusive to the store.
Until July 24, watch fans can view the “Re-Editions” timepieces in a special display in the Knightsbridge store’s Brompton Road windows.
The brands taking part are Audemars Piguet, Cartier, Harry Winston, Hublot, IWC, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Panerai, Richard Mille, Roger Dubuis and Vacheron Constantin.
Each has created a re-edition of a watch that forms an important part of the company’s heritage. All are available exclusively in Harrods during the period and some have been specially designed for the event.
Each window display includes not only the watch but also 360-degree rotating graphics showing it in greater intricacy, plus archive images.
Pieces on show include Panerai’s Luminor Marina 1950 Three Days Automatic Titanio (£7,300), a Harrods exclusive limited to 100 pieces, featuring a brushed and polished titanium metal bracelet with a transparent sapphire crystal back. For more on Panerai’s heritage read our feature here.
IWC is showcasing its Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII Edition (£3,790), exclusive to Harrods from July to September and limited to 1,948 pieces, echoing the year that the Pilot’s Watch Mark XI, to which it pays homage, was launched. For more on the history of the pilot’s watch see our feature here.
Jaeger-LeCoultre has created a new interpretation of the Reverso One Duetto Jewellery women’s watch in pink gold (£54,000), limited to eight pieces and exclusive to the store from July to September. To read more about the evolution of the Reverso, which is now 86 years old, click here.
