As you may have heard, team HODINKEE is currently in London for our very first pop-up abroad â and we’re doing it at the legendary Harrods of Knightsbridge. Arthur, Cara, Louis, and Ashley have been holding down the fort since Thursday and have met dozens of readers, friends and collectors in the hallowed halls of the Harrods Fine Watchmaking room (have a look at our live feed here) and things have been going so well, we’re sure that well be back in London soon enough. However, for this inaugural pop-up shop, only one day remains, so if you want to take a look at some amazing vintage watches and hand-made accessories in person, tomorrow, Sunday, June 12th, is your last day to do it.
A Small Sampling Of What’s Available At The HODINKEE X Harrods Pop-Up Shop
If you haven’t had a chance to visit us at Harrods, we thought we’d give you a quick run down on some of our favorite pieces we have available. There is an original Zenith A386, but this one has original boxes, papers, and even Gay Freres ladder bracelet. You couldn’t ask for a fuller set for a better watch. We also have two(!!) 6263 Daytonas â both in great shape. The black example, picture below, is a nice sigma dial, while the silver dial is a Big Red and comes with full boxes and papers!
For the Day-Date lover, we have a stunning rose gold example here on amazing brick style bracelet. This is really an amazingly charming watch in person, and sized and style perfectly as the ultimate boyfriend / girlfriend watch, to go either on a man or a woman.
The HODINKEE Pop-Up Shop is located within Harrods’ fine watch room, and you’ll be able not only browse watches, but also our straps and accessories. Our team will even help you pair your watch with what they think is the best strap option – something we get asked for all the time.
A few more notable watches available in the HODINKEE x Harrods Pop-Up include this beautiful solid gold Submariner (vintage, of course), reference 1680. What’s great about this is that it still shows its original case profile, which is uncommon in vintage Subs, and practically never seen on vintage GOLD Subs.
We also have on offer a super clean Explorer reference 1016, two amazing vintage Vacheron dress watches â the white gold watch seen below and another yellow gold Turn-O-Graph. Further, we have a killer 1970s Omega PloProf with original bracelet, a 1940s Longines for the Marine Nationale and a later 1950s Longines ref 5045. Oh, and a 1970s Sea-Dweller with rail dial. Yeah, we brought the heat.
The final day of the HODINKEE X Harrods Pop-Up Shop is tomorrow, Sunday, June 12th from 11:30AM through 6pm at Harrods (87-135 Brompton Road, London). Again, even if you’ve already visited, it may be worth heading back because we are re-stocking with some new pieces for the final day, and we will have a great selection of our hand-made accessories on hand for purchase too.
But, What If I Can’t Make It To London?
Don’t worry, we’ve got you. If you are interested in any of the watches above but may not be able to get to London tomorrow, shoot us an email at Watches@hodinkee.com with inquiries. Please allow us 48 hours to respond as we must give priority to those who are able to visit the shop at Harrods first. Anything that remains after Sunday will then become available.
