We are authorised NZ Retailers for all of the brands that we sell.  We do not parallel import any of our watches and all of our watches are covered by their manufacturers warranty.  All of our watches are 100% genuine.

We are New Zealand based, and New Zealand backed – operated from our bricks and mortar store location in the heart of Tauranga’s CBD and have been doing so since 1995. Unlike many online watch retail companies, we invite you to visit our showroom!

We stand by, and back up, what we sell and pride ourselves on the highest levels of customer service. We have a fully qualified Watchmaker on site who is able to service all the brands we sell and have a modern fully equiped workshop using some of the latest test equipment from Switzerland.
