Watch Shopping in Bangkok

Well not a true review as such but since I was in Siam Paragon, I decided to check out what watches shops were in the mall. And let me tell you that I was in for a shock. There were a number of shops but Paragon itself (anchor tenant of the mall) had a large selection of watches. Scroll down for a couple of photographs of the Paragon watch shop. Let me be  upfront in saying that I did not manage to locate all the shops or even go in many of them. 

The boutiques:

The are the ones I manage to locate and photograph.

The one I did not manage to locate:


The other shops.

Pendulum. It is currently undergoing renovation and will open soon. They have a small shop open next to the shop lot that is being renovated. Once the new Pendulum is open, the small shop will be renovated and will be a boutique for one of the brands they carry. Care to guess which one. The brands they carry includes Panerai, Zenith, Breitling, IWC, A. Lange and Sohne, Ferrari and VC.

I manage to manhandle the Panerai PAM00346 here. Very nice indeed. I like the watch plenty, not the price though. :)

PMT The Hour Glass. The brands you can find includes AP, Hublot, Harry Winston, Richard Mille, Sinn and Ulysse Nardin.

This is the Rolex and Tudor 'boutique'. Strangely the name of the shop is Time Midas.

The other shops that I did not manage to locate:

ST Diamension. They carry among others, Blancpain, Breguet and Glashutte Original.

Yafriro. They carry brands like Parmigiani Fleurier, delaCour, Jacob and Co, B.R.M., Vincent Berard and Greubel Forsey. 

And finally the watch shop in Paragon. They carry lots of brands, covering fashion watches to named brands. They have cheap watches and expensive ones. They have brands I have never seen before. The also have a watch service counter. You could spend a long time (pun not intended) here. 

Brands (those that I can remember) includes TAG Heuer, Meccaniche Veloci, Anonimo (finally got to see the watches), Time Force (I remember this brand from my days in Guam), Longines, Rado, Corum, Zenith, Seiko, Grand Seiko, Casio, Citizen, Edox, Breitling, Emporio Armani, Toy Watch, Tendence, Elle, Ebel, Doir, Guess, GC, Guy Laroche, Raymond Weil, Nixon, Oris, Graham and Maurice Lacroix. There are plenty more that I cannot remember. Just awesome. 

Watches everywhere.

The other shop I manage to find was this one, The Enamored D'watch Cafe by Trocadeo Group. It is a watch cafe of sorts. They do have a small selection of watches for sale and they also have a watch servicing facilities. I guess you can sit there and talk shop. 

What a mall.
