Jardins Florian is a Design House, Online Store and Magazine with a passion for humanity, craftsmanship and innovation, that launched officially in September 2011.
As a modern day Maison, we are dedicated to developing products that are distinguished also by their purpose and functionality. We aspire to serve creativity and humanity, with a true art de vivre and dolce vita spirit. While learning from all cultures and drawing from universal values, the roots of Jardins Florian are quintessentially French and Italian in terms of style and refinement.
Some of our core values are collaboration, poetry, surprise, humour and sustainability. Our essence goes way beyond commerce or products. Our Maison appeals to enlightened, discerning and refined customers, who seek to combine the art of living well with the simple pleasure of being more responsible. As we strive to be a sustainable enterprise, we thank you for supporting this journey.
These are your gardens, a space of surprise, sharing and discovery.
“Luxury is what you can repair”
You will find here the most refined and authentic brands and models. As you would expect from us, we give priority to exceptional vintage and second-hand watches.
HOW IT WORKS
To enter our Club, a one-off fee of £500 is required for individuals and £1,500 for companies. Once a member, you will receive our dedicated newsletter every time we have a unique model to sell, and you will be allowed as well to submit the watches you want to sell. For quality purposes, we keep full discretion on which brand/model we select and our decisions are final.
Our first watch, a stunning model from Patek Philippe with a very unique customization, was submitted to our followers on December 18, 2011.

"The earth does not belong to us but has just been entrusted to us by our children”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
This philosophy is very well epitomized by the quintessential watch brand, Patek Philippe. Indeed, their brand motto has constantly referred to values such a durability and repairability: "You never actually own a Patek Philippe. You merely look after it for the next generation."
While we are currently independent from any watch brand, we have a strong interest in Patek Philippe and Officine Panerai products, as they offer timeless designs and superior quality, which is evidenced by their value on the second market.
Durability is just one of the elements that allow a brand/product to be more sustainable and, as we gain scale and traction, we intend to get involved in the development of modern watches and the sourcing of materials. Prestigious watch brands are welcome to contact us with a view to developing limited editions with us.
