- About Hal Martin | Hal Martin Watches
Houston’s Finest Watch & Jewelry Store
Since 1973, Hal Martin’s has served as the premier source of high-end, pre-owned Swiss watches and accessories in Houston. What started off as a collector’s impassioned hobby eventually grew into one of the Southwest’s largest retailers of its type, with a fully-stocked shop to make sure every dent, scratch and worse receives proper repair.
Owner Hal Martin received his first Rolex as a graduation gift from his father in 1964, and from there grew a love of fine craftsmanship. After making his first Rolex sale for a $200 profit during his college years, Hal began collecting and selling sport, dive and Swiss watches for nearly a decade before finally deciding to move into full-time dealing. When putting together his current-day team, Hal went by this philosophy: “To be great, surround yourself with greatness.” The team includes Amanda (who runs the repair department), Barbara (the executive assistant), Tarang Patel (the diamond guy!), Mickey and James (the repair and restoration experts), and Honey and Suede (the friendly showroom dogs).
Pre-owned luxury watches are an investment. Whether as a gift for a friend, family member, employee or yourself, they appreciate in value while standing out as a flattering fashion piece. Hal Martin’s devotion to offering the highest-quality timepieces, gifts and accessories is apparent in our personal approach. Our family is skillfully trained in luxury watches, and we are available to teach you whatever you need to know about selecting, owning and storing a timepiece. We want you to enjoy the complexity and artistry of a fine watch or jewelry item as much as we do.
