Each store we profile has an interesting story to tell about where they operate and who they sell to. Whether you buy watches from brick and mortar retailers or prefer to buy watches online, these are the stores that help shape our watch culture around the globe. There is a long list of stores to cover, but if there is a retail location in your favorite city that we simply can’t miss, let us know in the comments below.

Where to buy watches in Naples, Florida?
Rather than a jewelry store that also happens to sell watches, in Naples, Florida, you have Exquisite Timepieces which was started by Steve Richardson and his brother in 1998 based upon their shared passion for watches. It started with their personal desire to wear and collect the finest timepieces (which began when they were in their pre-teen years). Collecting timepieces that you could not see on every other wrist was something they both loved to do.
aBlogtoWatch: What types of watches are popular in your market? What makes Naples a unique place to buy watches?
Exquisite Timepieces: Naples is an area that attracts the person who wants to live the “good life.” They are on the golf course before the dew has time to dry. After a round of golf, they are heading to the Yacht Club to grab lunch before heading out on their yacht for the day. After a day with friends, golfing and boating, and discussing the things they enjoy the most, the finest things in life, they may pop in to look at our collection. Exquisite Timepieces is nestled in a casual outdoor shopping center on an island with the bay on one side, and the Gulf on the other. Our customers know they can come in casually dressed, and be treated from a glass of wine to an espresso, while choosing which fine timepiece they want to add to their collection. Exquisite Timepieces is a place where as soon as you walk through the door, you are a friend of ours, and are greeted with warmth and kindness, whether you are making a purchase, or perusing the finest timepieces in the world.
