When visiting California or Miami, you’ve undoubtedly seen the legendary retailer Westime dot the landscape. Since their founding in SoCal over four decades ago, Westime has remained a must-visit destination for watch collectors and enthusiasts.

The now coast-to-coast retailer is home to incredible (and sometimes unique!) timepieces not seen anywhere else on the earth, Westime is the brainchild of John Simonian, a masterful retailer and expert marketer. Mr. Simonian’s son Greg is now at the helm of the legendary company. Family owned and operated since its founding, Westime consistently raises the bar for the luxury watch retail experience.

Today, Watchonista is thrilled to announce our partnership with Westime! We are combining forces to continue to reinforce, support, and grow the retailer’s prominence.

“Watchonista has built a great global audience, and we are ready to provide readers with our unique selection, services, events and news. We recently launched a completely new digital presence at Westime.com, and are excited to welcome watch enthusiasts who do their research and shopping online to discover the new Westime. It’s all been 30 years in the making!” - Greg Simonian, President of Westime

About Westime

Westime boasts a unique assortment of watches from the world’s top watchmakers, including Audemars Piguet, Breguet, Richard Mille, and much more. From the traditional to the avant-garde, including one-of-a-kind timepieces and exclusive editions, the watches on offer at Westime appeal to collectors from all over the world, many of whom have been clients for decades.

Westime has three boutique locations in southern California: Westime Beverly Hills at 206 North Rodeo Drive, Westime Sunset in West Hollywood, and Westime LaJolla, on the shores of the Pacific Ocean. The Simonians opened the company’s fourth boutique in Miami’s luxury Brickell City Centre shopping mecca. In addition to the world’s most exclusive brands, Westime’s new Miami store features dedicated Audemars Piguet and Richard Mille boutiques on either side of its modern, expansive and light-filled space.

Westime on Watchonista

Throughout our partnership, Westime will have a dedicated partner page on Watchonista that will highlight all of the special brands and unique services on offer at the retailer’s locations. This is a particularly special moment for Watchonista because we’ve enjoyed a special relationship with the Simonian family for many years. John and Greg have been huge advocates of Watchonista.

“Westime is on every collector’s radar for rare and sought-after watches, I am happy and proud to be collaborating with John and Greg on exciting new ventures that will serve to enhance Westime’s sterling reputation and attract new clients and collectors in the market for fine timepieces.” - Alexander Friedman, Co-Founder of Watchonista.

About Watchonista: Collectors sharing their passion for watchmaking

Since our founding, we’ve been an editorially based web site. Watchonista is not a selling platform. While many other watch sites have entered the world of e-commerce, we stand by our commitment to educate and communicate the best in watchmaking through fresh editorials and social media coverage. We feel that by partnering with key retailers that offer personalized service in physical boutiques, we can help elevate our readers’ retail experiences.

Watchonista is produced, edited, and written by a group of people who are passionate about watches, doing what they love best. We share our knowledge and passion with our audience and network of enthusiasts through our online magazine (Watchonista.com), social media, and collector’s events. Watchonista was founded by watch collectors and to this day we continue to collaborate with passionate people around the world who love watches.
