In 1900, the Tourneau family established a watch-selling business in the Russian Empire, fleeing to Paris after the Revolution before emigrating to New York City in 1924. The Tourneau brothers opened a small dressmaking shop, with a watch counter, in the Berkshire Place Hotel. They followed this with the company’s first full shop at Madison Avenue and 49th Street in 1930. In 1997 the company opened The Tourneau TimeMachine on 57th Street in New York City, and was at the time the world’s largest watch store.
By 2015 the company had 33 stores across 13 states, including the flagship stores in Las Vegas and New York. Tourneau is currently the largest authorized retailer of timepieces in the United States, with about 8,000 watches and 100 brands.
Tourneau also has a trade-in program for upgrading watch styles. Tourneau is the point of purchase for both the regular collections of timepiece brands, as well as limited edition lines that are available only at Tourneau stores. Tourneau stores also host exhibitions of rare timepieces and events. In addition to its retail locations, Tourneau has a watch servicing center in Long Island City and it also operates an e-commerce site.
