Omega Watches, Cartier Watches, Breitling Watches & TAG Heuer Watches

Since 1876, the Banks Lyon family name has been synonymous with the finest quality luxury watches and jewellery from some of the world's most prestigious brands, from Cartier and Omega watches to Chopard, Fope and CARAT* jewellery. A look around the website will give you a hint of the extensive collections of exclusive products we carry, both in our watches and jewellery categories. Banks Lyon's success has been founded on the peerless advice and friendly service we give to each and every one of our customers.

We pride ourselves on offering a personalised service to everyone, whether that be in our Lancaster based showroom or over the phone. We strongly believe that purchasing a luxury watch or piece of jewellery should be a memorable experience and, as such, we are here to help that be the case.

Banks Lyon are proud authorised stockists of watches from a wide range of luxury brands. Our selection includes Rolex watches, Omega watches, Cartier watches, Bremont watches and Breitling watches, further details of which you can find elsewhere in the relevant sections of the website. Every new watch purchased from Banks Lyon is a brand new piece direct from the manufacturer, complete with an official, full, two/three/four-year international manufacturer's guarantee. This not only confirms the watch's authenticity, but also ensures the item is not a grey import. Imported watches should be avoided at all costs as they are often second hand, have outstanding duty and/or VAT liabilities and may be stolen. Watch manufacturers keep a database of all reported lost and stolen watch case numbers. Only by buying your watch from an authorised stockist like Banks Lyon can you protect yourself from all of these possible issues.

In addition to stocking Omega watches, Cartier watches, Breitling watches and Bremont watches, we also stock Chopard watches, TAG Heuer watches, Armani watches, Gucci watches, Tissot watches and a wide range of jewellery. Our high-street showroom on Church Street, Lancaster carries a large stock-holding of luxury watches and jewellery which you are welcome to come and browse in person. We also operate a comprehensive watch repair and valuation insurance service for any of the brands we sell, ensuring you and your purchase are well looked after both now and in the future.


Qualified Diamond Merchants

We supply loose, GIA and Antwerp Certificated Diamonds direct from the Diamond Bourse in sizes ranging from 0.30 carat to over 10.00 carats in traditional Brilliant cut or any fancy cut you may desire.

This website illustrates just some of the varied stock we carry, while our latest products can be seen here. If you fail to see something of interest please contact Rodney at who will be pleased to source any item and answer any questions you may have.

Rodney Banks-Lyon FGA, NAG Dip and his experienced colleagues are always available to deal with your enquiry, whether it be simply asking about a battery change and reseal of your watch or the commission of a fabulous piece of Diamond jewellery.  In fact, whatever your enquiry, our team are here to assist you with it.
