Justice in Winchester has been confirmed as the first independent retailer to begin selling Shinola watches in the UK.
The store already has a number of Shinola watches on display and is expecting a new delivery soon.
John Argento, Shinola’s European managing director, who announced Shinola’s plans to develop its retail UK network in 2016 in an interview with WatchPro, confirmed the news: “We met with Jon [director Jon Quayle] and Tom in Baselworld earlier this year and were impressed by their great understanding of their customer and their passion for the brand. Although we hadn’t planned to open independents until later this year, we are very happy to partner with them earlier than anticipated”.
Quayle made the announcement on its website today, saying: “We are very excited to be accepted by Shinola as one of their key watch retailers and very proud to be one of the first stockists in the UK.”
Justice, which describes itself as ‘daring to different from the start’, also stocks Bremont, Eterna, Elliot Brown and Meistersinger.
