Almar, in Burlington Arcade off Piccadilly, is a watch-lover’s paradise – an outpost of Bond Street’s renowned timepiece emporium Marcus.
It offers a range of timepieces that no longer form part of Marcus’s collection. Almar’s collection is world-class, with models from leading watch houses such as Audemars Piguet, Alain Silberstein, Piaget, Hublot, Pierre Kunz and Franck Muller.
As well as offering the opportunity to buy a watch that you missed when it was first launched, the real draw is being able to buy a world-class watch at unbelievable value. The minimum discount on timepieces is 30 per cent and on some models is as much as 70 per cent – better than you could hope for second-hand watches, let alone mint pieces such as these. With the same exceptional expert service and advice that you would expect at Marcus, Almar should be red-ringed in any horolophile’s black book.
