Our History Image

The Beginning

Founded in 1924, Watches of Switzerland began trading as a mail-order business under the name G&M Lane on Ludgate Hill in London, dealing solely in the finest Swiss timepieces – a philosophy that shaped the company. By the late 1940s, business was thriving and Lane decided to trade under the name Watches of Switzerland.
