Jaeger-LeCoultre Boutiques Open In Vancouver And Toronto

Jaeger-LeCoultre Boutiques Open In Vancouver And Toronto Watch Stores

Having grown up near Toronto and now residing in Vancouver, I was thrilled to hear that Jaeger-LeCoultre would be gracing both of these fine Canadian cities with their own boutiques. These boutiques are Jaeger-LeCoultre’s first in Canada and, for watch fans that frequent either city, the addition is nothing short of exciting, as boutiques generally offer a wider selection and better access to special models than an authorized dealer might be able to provide.

While Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal have access to Jaeger-LeCoultre via authorized dealers, these new brand boutiques boast key locations that should connect well with each city. As Toronto is a mall-heavy city (for you foreigners, it’s a rather large and sprawling city), the Toronto Jaeger-LeCoultre boutique is located in the Yorkdale shopping center alongside many other watch retailers.

For Vancouver, the boutique is situated downtown in the shopping area of the the Burrard corridor, nestled among boutiques from Tiffany & Co, Montblanc, and Omega. Tucked away on Alberni street, Vancouver’s newly-opened Jaeger-LeCoultre boutique seems private, quiet, and unassuming. The inviting decor is decidedly JLC, and the watches on hand are even better.

With ample lighting, room for Jaeger-LeCoultre’s impressive family of watches and even a couple spots to sit and take in a truly special piece (perhaps, a Master Grande Tradition Tourbillon Cylindrique à Quantième Perpétuel?), the boutique is basically exactly what you’d expect from Jaeger-LeCoultre and it beckons passersby to come in and see what’s on offer. While I tooled about taking photos and adding fingerprints to some lovely watches, the Jaeger-LeCoultre boutique had a couple of visitors that ranged from hardcore JLC enthusiasts to casual street traffic simply inquiring as to what the boutique sold.

If you’re kicking around downtown Vancouver and want the full JLC brand experience, swing by Alberni and check out the Jaeger-LeCoultre boutique to see for yourself. Then, when you’re done, zip across the street to Thierry and sample their excellent french pastries and chocolates – it’s the ideal way to come down from a watch high or celebrate a new addition to the collection. jaeger-lecoultre.com

    I wonder, can you just walk into these places. Can i sautner in say ” Can i try some on ” , what do you think they would do ? . Then wander without paying saying ” i might pop in after lunch for that 100 grand watch “. Am being awfully judgemental, but folk are.

      If they have any slight semblance of service, they’ll be completely gracious and willing to let you try something on. The first rule of sales is to never pre-judge, not only because the guy who isn’t dressed to the nines may be a billionaire who can do as he pleases, but because word gets around.

      Very excited to check out the new boutique here in Vancouver. Have been looking at getting a JLC but the 2 main ADs haven’t had much luck getting stock. Only now is it clear why

      • Nate is right. You want everyone who comes into your store leave saying good things. Besides, having other people in the store makes the next person in the door think the place is not dead and the salespeople are not about to descend upon them like hungry vultures. Good sales people enjoy talking to people, even those they spot as non-buyers, so long as the store is not overly busy. Heck, they might be bored waiting for someone to come in and most sales people enjoy human company, ha ha. Cheers.

    • Oh yeah, when you drop into watch stores, be sure to tell them you are a famous aBlogtoWatch commenter with great influence in the watch world. Except that your Jedi mind powers don’t extend to aligning screws on bezels, ha ha.

      I have sat down with staff and tried on watches in probably more than 50 boutiques in the last 5 years and only bought one watch. Often I do it in a suit, but I also go in casual clothes. I find that the staff are almost always very helpful and they are just as keen to talk about the merits of a watch even if they do not suspect it will end in a deal – this is what proper customer service is and the irony is that you are more likely to be treated like an intruder in a lesser watch-store than a boutique.

      I have spent entire lunch hours in these places and I end up getting emailed by them and invited to events as a consequence. I can’t recommend it enough if you want to get closer to a brand and try on a watch that you have so far only seen in marketing images.

      The days of being judged at the door by your scruffy appearance are long gone: you have hipster millennial millionaires to thank for that!

    JLC makes some very lovely watches.

    Canada, eh?
    IMO, there should, at the least, be some plaid carpets.

  • “… adding fingerprints to some lovely watches.” – too funny as that’s my job at BaselWorld James!

  • SuperStrapper

    Been there, done that. Will return.

    Was just at Yorkdale Mall in Toronto a week ago. I hadn’t been there for awhile and spend 3.5 hours talking to watch guys and try things on but… finally!!!! A boutique in Toronto. Wow. I’m planning to spend some time there soon. I’m looking forward to check out their special editions only limited for purchase from boutiques.

    I own a LeCoultre. I think it’s from the ’50s. Fabian gave the watch to his producer and the engraving on the back says, “Thanks to a great producer – Fabian”.
