Their average sale price is over £20,000, the sort of cash that the wealthy residents of Wilmslow and Manchester take in their stride. The company is opening a third boutique in central Manchester next year; taking over a unit being vacated by Boodles.

Frost of London has benefited from a surge in tourist spending this summer at its recently refurbished Bond Street boutique, particularly for obscure brands that collectors crave and exclusive pieces from more recognisable brands including Graham, Parmigiani and Corum.
