The Rakish Gent is relatively new to the world of luxury watches, but it is pretty obvious to us that since Watchfinder was founded in 2002, it has quickly become the established destination to buy and sell premium pre-owned watches. The brand now boasts more than 50 brands (including Cartier, Rolex & Omega plus many more), a manufacturer certified service centre and numerous locations around the UK, the most impressive of which is the flagship Royal Exchange boutique in London.


Situated in the heart of London’s financial district, the Royal Exchange boutique houses over 200 watches across 500 square feet, making it a superb destination to browse some of the finest watches in the world.


Recently fully refurbished, the new flagship is nestled between beautiful stone pillars, a short walk from Bank station. The new space boasts counters embedded with touchscreens, which allows access to watches in store as well as to the boutique app where detailed information on the timepieces can be found. The sleek and appropriately rakish finishing touches include American black walnut counters, dark grey slate flooring and touches of leather and brass. It really does make for a superb space to view luxury watches in a physical space and be guided by some of the best sales people in the country.


Every watch that is brought and sold via Watchfinder undergoes a strict and rigorous screening process for authenticity to ensure that it meets the highest standards before sale and before it is given a 12 month warranty.
