1. Fox's Gem Shop
Some say that cellphones have made wristwatches all but obsolete. Some would be wrong. The sense of solidity and history that a classic watch can give you is unmatched, and the absolute best place to get a fine European watch in Seattle is at Fox's Gem Shop downtown. Brands like IWC and Ulysse Nardin run in the low five figures, but will serve you for generations.
From $7,500. Fox's Gem Shop, 1341 5th Ave, Downtown (206-623-2528).
