Laings and Rolex


In 1840, brothers James and William Laing began supplying Clydebuilt vessels with silverware and precision instruments – work that would develop nearly two centuries later into one of the largest independent luxury jewellers in the United Kingdom. Horology expertise has always been at the heart of Laings; we offer an exceptional collection of fine jewellery and Swiss watches, including Rolex at all four of our locations across the United Kingdom.


Previous generations have paved the way, and we take inspiration from our founders to craft and develop new, innovative ways to push boundaries in the world of luxury. Joe Walsh was appointed CEO in 2011, and Laings has grown in strength thanks to our team – some who have dedicated over 40 years to our business. Our reputation of being one of the leading family-owned jewellers in the UK is one that informs every pillar of Laings, with our roots dedicated providing to an unparalleled luxury experience from beginning to end.


Laings is proud to be an Official Rolex Retailer with dedicated showrooms in our Edinburgh, Glasgow, Southampton and Cardiff locations. We share the strive for excellence and exacting standards of the leading Swiss luxury watch brand, whose partnerships are a carefully considered choice and a responsibility we are honoured to endorse. We provide a knowledgeable and welcoming service to new and returning clients in-store, helping them to select the perfect Rolex timepiece.


A wealth of experience lies within the teams at each Laing’s location; our Rolex showroom managers have dedicated years to expanding their knowledge and will guide you through your Rolex journey at your own pace, providing in-depth information and delighting in finding you the perfect timepiece. With over 180 years of experience, we take pride in the reputation we have built with our clients. We look forward to welcoming you to our Edinburgh, Glasgow, Southampton and Cardiff showrooms.
