The Carollinum Company

We are a Czech, family-owned company, a leader in the retail of luxury watches and accessories on the Czech market. In Prague’s very exclusive Pařížská Street we run the only Rolex mono brand boutique in the Czech Republic. In addition, we have been entrusted with running a boutique for the exceptional watchmaking company Patek Philippe. To cap it all we also have the multi brand Carollinum boutique with a curated selection of timepieces by twelve brands of international renown. 

Our vision

“Carollinum aims to be that unique partner to everyone who wants to discover their passion for the watchmaking art, original handiwork and values that last for generations.”

Carollinum has since expanded and now runs three stunning boutiques in Prague’s up-market Pařížská Street. These boutiques include the only mono brand boutiques for Rolex and Patek Philippe in the Czech Republic. The third retail outlet is the Carollinum Boutique with twelve prestigious watchmaking brands in its portfolio. Two of Tamara’s three children, Daniela Jannová and Martin Janna, work in the company.
