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.
