Our Showroom

An Experience, Like No Other

Founded by Robert Kirk Inches and his uncle James Hamilton, Hamilton & Inches opened its first store on Edinburgh’s Princes Street in May 1866. We have been based at 87 George Street since 1952 and continue to house some of the world’s finest watch and jewellery collections, as well as our exceptionally talented team of craftspeople. Accommodating all five storeys of the once Georgian townhouse, today we embody the very best Scotland has to offer. Along with the finest diamond jewellery and iconic watch brands, our showroom is made even more unique as our master craftspeople take residence above the showroom making our beautiful silverware and jewellery.

In 2021, we underwent a multi-million pound refurbishment of all five levels of our Grade A listed building. From our showroom and service departments to the workshops in the stories above, the building has been protected for the next 155 years, allowing our team to continue to create exceptional hand-crafted items for decades to come. Discover Hamilton & Inches; an experience like no other.

A Space, Like No Other

At the heart of the Grade A listed building is our historic showroom, featuring restored breccia violetta marble pillars which date back to 1835. These elements, alongside our range of exceptional jewellery and watches, are lit beautifully via chandelier lighting, creating a generous glow that spills out onto George Street.

An Installation, Like No Other

Above our newly installed diamond bar hangs an exquisite hand-crafted silver Ginkgo leaf installation, created by our craftspeople with input of each member of staff. It has been designed to marry our past to our future and celebrate the proud heritage of Hamilton & Inches.

Watchmaking, Like No Other

A Story, Like No Other

Once a private residence, Hamilton & Inches’ Edinburgh showroom was developed into a retail space by renowned architect David Bryce in 1835, creating the pillared showroom that remains today. Bryce retained many of the original features, including our treasured Adam fireplace, making it an important testament to 19th century Scotland and the perfect place to discover our collections. Our latest renovation project has lovingly and carefully restored these precious items to their former glory.
