Watchfinder is a UK business success story. Founded in 2002, they have become one of the Worlds premium resellers of luxury watches. They are now part of the Richemont family of luxury product providers, sharing brands such as Cartier and IWC
within their group.
After rapid growth throughout the first 10 years, additional facilities were added in an ‘ad-hoc’ fashion. The Company now benefitted from specialist operations, such as a world-class service centre and product photography studio, running 24/7 to capture all new stock.
These facilities however were spread over multiple sites and therefore the workflow was somewhat disparate and disconnected. In 2017 Blue Jelly began assisting with feasibility studies and modeling to identify the perfect size and layout for an ‘all new’ HQ. Following a detailed period of test fit design, planning, and budgeting, a new 18,000sqft facility was chosen and secured.
In late 2020 the design was finalized with the help of the WF steering group. This led to a 20-week implementation phase that has created a highly specialized Workplace fit-out. A workplace that houses nearly 200 staff in well-conceived series of spaces set over 3 floors… and yes, it all ran like clockwork!
