Windsor Jewelers is one of the South’s most exclusive jewelers, carrying luxury brands that are difficult, if not impossible, to find elsewhere in the Carolinas. Founder Rob Simon started his high-end business in 1986 in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. In 2013, he opened a second store in Charlotte, N.C.

Windsor has long been the only authorized dealer in the Carolinas for Patek Philippe, a Swiss company that ranks among the world’s premier manufacturers of timepieces.

Last year, Patek Philippe celebrated its 175th anniversary and marked the occasion by releasing some of its most impressive and complicated timepieces to date. An example is the Grandmaster Chime, a two-sided watch (it features a perpetual calendar on the reverse) that has the most chimes of any Patek timepiece. Only seven will be produced. Another is the 175th Anniversary World Time watch with a center moon phase.

Windsor is also the only dealer in the Carolinas for Panerai, another luxury watch brand. As for jewelry, Windsor offers custom, one-of-a-kind pieces as well as luxury brands like Oscar Heyman, a 100-yearold company known for its exquisite designs and settings.
