We continue a long family tradition of providing customers with excellent sales support and service for luxury Swiss watches. As a well-established business with a long history, we are proud to have been the first Official Rolex Retailer in the Czech Republic. The now legendary boutique in Štěpánská Street, operated by the owner, Vladimír Bechyně, for more than 35 years, has been a popular spot for true watch connoisseurs and anyone capable of appreciating the rite of purchasing a watch as an important part of its story. In 2013, we opened a new shop in Prague at Václavské náměstí 10.

Customer Service

We are known for our dedication to excellent customer service. For your ultimate convenience, the after-sales service is located in our Štěpánská Street boutique, just a few minutes’ walk from our shop at Václavské náměstí.

Open for almost half a century at the same spot, our customer service has become synonymous with outstanding quality and watchmaking prowess.

To make sure that your watch gets the first-class service it deserves, all our watchmakers are trained directly in Switzerland by the manufacturerʼs specialists.

Our History

We are a Czech family business dedicated to prestigious Swiss watch brands, including Rolex, Longines, Tudor, Carl F. Bucherer, TAG Heuer, Tissot, Balmain a Certina. In addition, we offer luxury clocks and watch winders by Buben & Zörweg as well as carefully selected jewellery by Thomas Frieden and Enrico Capra.

Vladimír Bechyně, Master Watchmaker and founder of Hodinářství Bechyně, has been devoted to fine watches since 1958. Soon after the fall of communism in 1989 he decided to establish his own business, becoming authorised retailer for Longines and Tissot watches. Since 1996 he has been a proud Rolex Official Retailer for the Czech Republic. In 2009 the company joined forces with Tudor and started offering Enrico Capra jewellery.

From 2000 Vladimír Bechyně has been gradually handing over the responsibility of leading the business to his daughter Lenka, today the Managing Director of the company. 

Since 2010 we have been official Longines wholesale distributor for the Czech Republic, covering the demand for premium Longines watches through a selective network of premium local retailers. In 2014 we extended our wholesale range by becoming the distributor of Balmain watches both in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. To strengthen our wholesale business and further support our retailers by offering a more comprehensive portfolio, in January 2017 we made an agreement with Tudor to become the brandʼs exclusive distributor for the Czech Republic and currently its only wholesale partner worldwide.
