Our History


       William Barthman has been a respected retailer of fine watches and jewelry in the Financial District since 1884.  The company’s original store, located at 174 Broadway, was renowned for its superior customer service, professionalism, and community relations.

        William Barthman is proud to have upheld these traditions throughout its history, and the company has since expanded to include a second store.  Upon opening its doors in 1998, William Barthman’s Brooklyn boutique – a modern, luxurious store offering over five thousand square feet of retail space – has become a venerated source for timepieces, jewelry, and repair services in the high-end shopping district of King’s Highway.

        In response to the company’s growth, William Barthman acquired a larger space for its Manhattan store and headquarters in 2006.  The store’s current location - at 20 Broad Street - offers a multitude of services, including on-site watch and jewelry repairs.  Please visit our stores for a personalized shopping experience.
