Rolex at Hamilton & Inches

Our History

Hamilton & Inches have been a luxury watch and jewellery retailer in Edinburgh, Scotland for over 155 years since it was first established in 1866.

Initially granted a Royal Warrant over 125 years ago, Hamilton & Inches was proudly recognised as “Silversmiths and Clock Specialists to her Majesty The Queen”, and still hold their Royal Warrant under the late Queen Elizabeth II.

Hamilton & Inches began creating expert timepieces from their workshops in Edinburgh, including the iconic Balmoral Tower Clock, and now partners with the very finest luxury watch brands including Rolex.


Hamilton & Inches became an Official Rolex Retailer over 25 years ago and has enjoyed a long partnership with the brand. Our dedicated Rolex Showroom and Rolex-Accredited Watchmaker stands as testament to our commitment to providing Hamilton & Inches customers with an outstanding Rolex experience.


From the moment we opened our doors in 1866, we have upheld the highest standards of customer service and strive for excellence. Our team at Hamilton & Inches have a wealth of experience and knowledge of Rolex watches. Some members of our staff have over 30 years’ experience of assisting our valued customers.


In October 2013, Hamilton & Inches proudly opened a dedicated Rolex showroom in our George Street store in Edinburgh. From lighting to décor, our showroom has been specially designed to show our extensive collection of Rolex watches. It is here that the Hamilton & Inches’ team, with over 200 years’ horological experience and extensive technical knowledge, guide customers to find their perfect timepiece from our wide range of Rolex watches.
