The Hour House – A New Horological Destination In London
A while back, we reported to you about Skolorr, the curated online marketplace for watches from independent watchmakers. But as you know, not everyone is comfortable (yet) with buying a fine watch online. You still might want to see, feel and experience the watch for yourself, in the flesh. Especially watches from the independents, which often can’t be found everywhere, require a bit of closer inspection before someone will do the purchase.

The Hour House

To serve those customers, entrepreneur Sky Sit and her team at Skolorr jumped into the gap that disappearing multi-brand stores like Marcus (London) left and opened a showroom and VIP lounge in The Hour House. Located on Duke Street in London, next to Selfridges, you can find vintage watches, fine jewellery and now watches from independent watchmakers (curated by Skolorr) as well. The VIP lounge will be used for private viewings and the location will also be used for hosting watch events.

Currently, you will find watches from Claude Meylan and Cyrus being exhibited at The Hour House. These can be admired during the regular opening hours, which are from Monday to Friday from 9:30 am to 6:00 pm. If you want to make an appointment for a private viewing, get in touch with Skolorr via their website or by giving them a note via
