Luxury watches and jewelry retailer Westime recently expanded to a prime new location just a stone’s throw away from the intimate spot they inhabited for the last dozen years. Now open at the top of Via Rodeo, the 2,000-square-foot, family-owned boutique is a mecca for all things related to the telling of time. Here, we list five reasons to head to their Beverly Hills shop right now.
1. You Won’t Break a Sweat Getting There
Thanks to the new swanky locale, visitors can hop right off the valet elevator alcove and into the boutique. And, after perusing and purchasing wares, shoppers can step directly across the cobblestone pathway to enjoy a delectable meal at 208 Rodeo Restaurant, a pan-Asian and French-inspired California eatery.
2. The Façade is Pretty Sweet
Comprised of regal red bricks and floor-to-ceiling windows, the standout component of Westime's brand-new look is six showcase towers, which rotate 180 degrees to display all sorts of shiny merchandise.
3. The Interior Design Pays Homage to the Westime Name
The company’s signature capital “W” appears in a subtle manner throughout the shop, while their watch gear logo appears on the custom blue and cream terrazzo-tile floors.
4. There’s An Espresso Bar
We can’t shop—or function for that matter—without caffeine. Lucky for us, Westime set up an espresso bar to encourage shoppers to relax and enjoy the products at their own pace.
5. A Larger Space Means More Goods
In addition to offering a choice selection of brands like Hublot, Breitling, and Audemars Piguet, the new store is adding Bulgari, Carl F. Bucherer, Omega, and Ulysse Nardin to their high-end mix.
Open Monday through Friday 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Sunday 12-5 p.m. 216 N. Rodeo Dr., Beverly Hills, 310-888-8880; westime.com
