    Question Visiting Montreal This Weekend - Suggestions of Good Watch Shops?

    Exactly as the title states - I'm visiting Montreal this weekend and would love to get some suggestions of good places to check out watches (and if there area any that offer particularly good deals on new and/or used, that would be useful as well).

    Any feedback is much appreciated!

    You can check out Matt Baily, Chateau d'Ivoire, La Swiss, Mosels, Bijouterie Eli & Co., or Timeless Watches. I don't know what kind of deal you can get since I've never bought a watch from them yet. Most of them are in the downtown core so you can check out more than one store while you're at it.

    Depending on what you're looking for:

    Eli & CO. : For midrange Swatch Group (some Longine top), Citizen and fashion brands. Last time I went there, a batch of VSA was on 40% discount (in the spring)
    Matt Baily: Specialized in big & expensive (B&R, U-Boat), but our AD for Oris and a couple other nice brand.
    La Swis: First stop for new, high-end watches (UN, AP, GP and many more).
    Timeless Watches: Will be my #1 choice. High-end pre-owned and vintage.
    Chateau d'Ivoire, Mosels: More regular AD

    Thank you both for the quick suggestions!

    Are there really no Tudor autorized distributors in Montreal?!?

    Edit: Apparently, based on a quick google search, your last suggest - Chateau D'Ivoire - carries some Tudor models. Hoping to see a Black Bay in person!

    Troy if you're coming from NYC you may be underwhelmed at the selection and prices in Montreal. Its a great party town with some nice restos and the women are to die for, but the watch selection is meh IMHO.

    Indeed! I didn't see that you came from NYC.

    Since the market is smaller, I think you could get better deal on pre-owned pieces.

    Then again, smaller market, maybe there's more chance that the Tudor AD still have some BB in stock. By the Tudor website, there's to AD downtown.

    This hits the nail on the head. If you're visiting Montreal with the intention of watch shopping, you;re missing the point. The nice weather is upon us, the eye candy will be in the restaurants, bars, and clubs - not on your wrist.

    M<ontreal is one of the last places I would ever want to live, but I go there very often to visit. I always stay at the Opus (even though I always still call it Godin) - perfect launch point.

    I don't want to start WWIII but Montreal has the best bagels in the world! Sorry those big circles of dry dough in NY ain't bagels. It's also blessed with awesome smoked meat sandwich joints. Shwartz's On St Laurent is always packed with tourists but if you just cross the street the Main Deli is just as good if not better and no lineup to boot. And did I mention the French girls? Mon dieu!
