Betteridge NYC stores

The Beginnings

Rolex and Betteridge were both founded in the early twentieth century. While Hans Wilsdorf, Rolex’s visionary founder, was establishing his legendary Genevan manufacture in the 1920s, A.E. Betteridge’s business was thriving on a pair of the most esteemed retail locales in the world: Fifth Avenue & 45th Street and Wall Street & Broadway.

Bert Betteridge

Sport Meets Luxury

Just after Rolex introduced two of its most iconic watches in the early 1950s – the Explorer and the Submariner – Bert Betteridge relocated Betteridge’s headquarters from New York City to Greenwich. Bert immediately recognized Rolex’s extraordinary potential for these timepieces, which he believed bridge the gap between the luxury and sport watchmaking worlds.

Betteridge Greenwich

In 2015, the Greenwich flagship store moved down "the Avenue" from 117 to 239. Rolex has an expansive showroom in our new location, complete with a private meeting room, dedicated service area, and extensive inventory.
