luxurious, yet welcoming
The layout of The Hour Glass is extremely plush and refined, and the range of watches sold gave an antique feeling. However, this was not the case as not only does The Hour Glass sell exquisitely crafted watches, they are also on trend and add to the air of sophistication present in the store.
The staff greet with a smile and are extremely helpful, tending to my aunt's enquiries and also recommending various designs. The display is very unique, and of course, comes with a high price. However, even if you are slow in deciding what you want, the staff are very patient, and do not mind your various questions. Not only does it feel welcoming, but it makes one want to return again.
Definitely a sanctuary for luxury.
I visited the hour glass at ion yesterday and I must say that on my first look, i thought it was a shop selling antiques that had things to do with watch making. There were a lot of fine watch making equipment and very old looking ones on displayed on the front windows and even on the inside. This store has a very different feel as compared to other watch stores, as the decor created a very high class and sophisticated feel.
As I stepped in, one of the staff smiled at me and I walked around the store browsing for watches. The brands that they carried here were not often heard even in the other chains such as sincere and cortina. But the watches are very exquisite and of course so is the price.
When I asked the staff to show me some watches, she was very polite and smiled at me. When I asked her what this brands are as I said they were not commonly seen, I half expected that she would have a look of disgust cause she would realised that I am just a common folk, but she did not and I was given a splendid introduction to that brand that I asked. Although I did not purchase anything yet took out quite a bit of her time, she was also very patient.
I would go back again, if I ever could afford the watches.
