Goldsmiths Rolex Showroom

Our Rolex history

For over 230 years, Goldsmiths has been specialising in fine jewellery and luxury timepieces.

Our unique history and reputation for excellence informs everything we do.

Goldsmiths Rolex Store

Since 1778

Goldsmiths has an illustrious heritage as a fine jeweller, spanning more than two centuries of tradition and experience. Our first showroom opened in Newcastle in 1778 and Goldsmiths has since become firmly established as a dynamic destination for luxury watches and fine jewellery.

Today, we are one of the leading fine jewellers in the UK, providing a range of diamonds, jewellery and timepieces to customers in every major town and city.

Rolex & Goldsmiths History

Goldsmiths and Rolex

Over a century ago, in 1919, Goldsmiths were privileged to be one of the first appointed stockists of Rolex timepieces, with our Northern Goldsmiths showroom in Newcastle.

To commemorate the occasion, an iconic four-sided golden Rolex clock was installed above the location in 1937. We are proud to say that this showroom remains on the same corner of Blackett Street in Newcastle, continuing to showcase our long-established relationship with Rolex and signifying our expertise and knowledge to any customers wishing to purchase a Rolex watch.
