Winners of the 2019 WatchPro Awards were revealed on Tuesday night at a spectacular gala dinner in Central London.
Over 300 leading executives, representing brands, wholesalers and retailers that collectively account for over 90% of watch sales in this country, gathered to see which teams, individuals and companies are most admired by their peers in the industry.
WatchPro’s voting system for the awards is by invitation-only, with executives at watch brand offices asked to vote for the retailers they most admire. Retailers are asked to vote for the brands they most admire.
Today we reveal the winners of the retailer categories, which cover businesses ranging from ecommerce startups to multinational super-giants.
