In 2011 the team at Prestons were delighted to receive the opportunity to expand into Leeds, West Yorkshire. The store, which opened on the 1st June 2012, was the first solus Rolex boutique outside of London and is located on Commercial Street. On the 1st June 2019 Rolex At Prestons will celebrate its seventh successful year as an official Rolex retailer in Leeds city centre.
The store, which was co-designed with the architects at Rolex Geneva, embodies the brands styling and identity to create an atmosphere which allows clients to completely immerse themselves within its culture.
In addition to Rolex, Rolex At Prestons also carries a collection of watches by Rolex’s sibling brand Tudor, which was originally founded in 1926. The brand which isacclaimed throughout its long history by the Marine nationale française (MN), the US Navy (USN) and other important military organisations throughout the world, the brand continues to extend their reputation for quality and robustness. The brand carries timepieces with a strong identity, unique style and uncompromising quality.The Tudor brand embraces many of Rolex’s brand values which was the wish of both brands founder, Hans Wilsdorf, and has been a feature in our Leeds showroom since their UK relaunch in September 2014.
Rolex At Prestons is a space dedicated solely to the exquisite timepieces created by Rolex and Tudor. The ground floor at our Leeds showroom is an opulent space inspired by Rolex’s own corporate design. With clean cream marble displays, a green glass feature wall and an incredible three story ‘Jubilee’ leather paneled wall, the space is completely dedicated to its brands.
The centrepiece of the ground floor is a floating glass staircase with brass banister and detailing. As you approach the first floor the double height ceiling offers a light and airy space which is again dedicated to Rolex and Tudor watches. The double height ceiling creates the perfect environment to explore our dedicated Rolex Library and our feature Jubilee Champagne Bar. The Jubilee Bar, our brass centerpiece, is the perfect place to celebrate the purchase of your new watch or simply enjoy 'Champagne Sundays'.
