Oliver Pollock, the fourth generation of his family to be involved in the world of watches set up Luxury Watch Repairs 18 months ago.
Based in Hatton Garden — with expansion plans for an office in Manchester and New York later this year — the Luxury Watch Repairs concept was created when Pollock (aged 26) was trading vintage watches. At that time, he found himself constantly frustrated by the lack of efficient and reliable workshops to facilitate the volume of his repairs and servicing. The only way to answer his own conundrum then was to become his own solution.
Luxury Watch Repairs’ mission is refreshing. They’ve managed to bring watch servicing into the 21st century. You can even request a time lapse video of your watch being serviced. Oliver oversees the day to day running of the workshop and has vast experience in the luxury watch industry having previously worked as a Rolex trader for a number of years.
Although Oliver admits, he is still at an early stage in his career, his great passion for watches comes from his grandfather and father who have been involved in the watch business for many years (150 years to be precise). As such as, it is inevitable that Oliver himself has built up a great collection of his own. One which he was most generous to tell us about.
