    I'm off to London!

    I'm headed to London this week for work and vacation: my wife and 10-year-old daughter are coming with me! We will only be there for a few days, but I hope to hit some of the watch shops in town.

    Apart from the Bremont boutique in Covent Garden, what are the "must visit" watch destinations in London? I've been there many times, but never looking for watches.

    And of course it's always difficult to pick which watches to bring with you on trip like this. Here's my selection:
    - Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Duo
    - Nomos Tangomat GMT
    - Paul Picot Firshire Chrono (just got this one!)

    Harrods, Selfridges, Watches of Switzerland, Rolex Flagship Store at 1, Hyde Park.

    Walk up Bond / New Bond Street there will be 10-20 high-end watch stores, including several which carry JLC, IWC, etc.

    Burlington Arcade is a must regarding Vintage.

    And of course visit Page & Cooper, a bit outside of London, for Damasko and Mühle.

    This.

    Although I hate the Vintage Rolex shop there. Nice to look at but I wouldn't ever buy anything from them.
    The vintage Omega shop though is great and always has some lovely watches.

    Bremont's not in Covent Garden, they're in Mayfair.

    The Hour Passion opposite Seldridges is worth stoppint into to see the lesser marketed Swatch brands like Certina, Mido and Union Glashutte.
    In fact, they're the only place on London you can see Union watches.

    I'm always up for meeting random WUS members if you're interested; PM if you are. There are a couple of ice cream stops a 10 year old would love.

    Selfridges has their sale on at the moment and there are some bargains to be had. Most of the boutiques are at the end of Old Bond Street nearest Green Park. There are ones for JLC, VC, Rolex, Breguet, Hublot plus some like Chopard, Cartier, Harry Winston that carry jewellery as well. There's also a Wempe and a shop called Kronometry that carry multiple brands. Bremont is on South Audley Street in Mayfair and just round the corner is Mount Street which has a jeweller I can't remember the name of but carries several high end brands like FP Journe
