Watch house Tourneau makes its Hawaii debut

Tourneau may be the new kid on the block, but as the recognized world’s largest watch store, it has already made its presence known throughout the state.

One of the upscale additions to the newly renovated Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center, Tourneau is the first Hawaii store for the century-old company. The store, which measures over 2,000 square feet, showcases more than 8,000 men’s and ladies’ timepieces such as Franck Muller, Breitling, TAG Heuer, Omega, and Tourneau’s own brand line, Tourneau Timepieces.

“In general, Hawaii is a premier retail market and one we were very interested in expanding into. Our store, in a premier location within the complex, is a perfect showcase for us,” says Andrew Block, executive vice president of Tourneau. “Additionally, for us the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center equates to superb taste and style, and provides the vibrant and diverse mix of shopping, dining and entertainment for its customers that we find complementary to the Tourneau shopping experience.”

Tourneau, the world’s largest watch store as recognized by Guinness World Records, is equally recognized as the store with the world’s largest selection of pre-owned watches — all expertly repaired, rebuilt, restored and certified — and accompanied by a one-year warranty.

“Pre-owned watches are everything you’d expect in a fine watch — except the price,” said Block. “Pre-owned gives customers the opportunity to purchase a brand or style of watch that they may not be able afford new.
“Our pre-owned best sellers mirror our new brand best sellers. The demand is so great that we can never satisfy our need for pre-owned product.”

In sync with the company’s mission to provide the best customer service, Tourneau is authorized to service and repair every major watch brand it carries, as it does on-site at its Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center store.
What also keeps customers coming back is Tourneau’s three-year warranty, trade-in and trade-up program and lifetime battery replacement.

One of the newest members of the Tourneau family is the Gotham Avant-Garde, released in March. The limited-edition Gotham Avant-Garde is an expansion of the signature Gotham Collection of fine timepieces inspired by early 20th century Art Deco design.

An equally adored member of Tourneau Timepieces is the Classic 1900 collection of 18k gold men’s pieces, elevating the standard for luxury. Each Classic 1900 piece is a uniquely handmade timepiece calibrated and constructed to last through decades of faithful, accurate timekeeping.

“In the early 1900s, Tourneau launched the first Tourneau Timepiece Collection, and since that time many of these find watches have become collectors’ pieces,” said Block. “The Tourneau Timepiece Collection represents 100 years of dedication to making and selling fine Swiss timepieces. Our collections are a study in timeless design, technological sophistication and meticulous craftsmanship.”
