It is not the intention of this post to talk about watch shopping in Hong Kong. But since we were there and did pass by some watch shops, I thought I post about some of the shops we did see and visit.
The first shop is called (I could be wrong) LS Collection. It is in the shopping atrium of The Park Lane Hotel. The shop basically carries German and Russian made watches. Among the brands that you can find there are Tutima, Sinn, Ventura, Poljot, Aerowatch and Meister Singer.
One of the brands they carry is Thomas Ninchritz and the watch they had was the Vice Versa Watch, the watch shown below. I have to say that it was an interesting watch. I do like the vice versa movement.

Across the road from the hotel is the shopping mall called Windsor House. There are a number of watch shops here. On the ground floor is the Rolex and Tudor boutique. And no, the new Explorer II is not available as yet.
On the same floor, you will find the IWC and Cartier Boutique. It is interesting that they share the same shop. Well, they are both under the same parent.
You can also find the Technomarine boutique in the mall.
The other watch shop is the King Fook Jewellery Group watch shop. It is a big shop and some of the brands they carry are Tag Heuer, Rado, Breitling, Grand Seiko, Ball and Baume et Mercier.
Another view of the IWC and Cartier Boutique (sorry for the poor quality of the photograph).
Just down the road from the Windsor House mall is the Omega Boutique. You can find the latest models here.
also along the same road, you will find the 'smallest' watch shop this side of Hong Kong.
No watch shopping is complete if you do not visit Heritage 1881. I did write about it here:
I have to say that the Richemont Group brands are very present here in Heritage 1881.
The Lange Boutique.
The Cartier Boutique.
The IWC Boutique.
The VC Boutique.
The JLC Boutique.
Walking from Heritage 1881 up towards Canton Road, you will pass by a number of watch shops like Breguet, Rolex, Tudor and others.
The culmination of this post is the Panerai Boutique at Canton Road where the unexpected happen. Yes, we did get a Panerai in the PAM00337. And on a personal note, one of the best and friendliest experience I have had in a Panerai Boutique.
