Clock and Watch Shop: Antigua Relojeria

Antigua RelojeriaAntigua Relojeria is located in calle de la Sal, 2 close to Plaza Mayor.

In 1939, Genaro Garcia Morales bought the Antigua Relojeria. This clock and watch shop had been founded in 1880.

In those days Genaro was the director of Omega in Spain, but during the Civil War the business had been limited and he was looking for new challenges.

The shop was not in good conditions as a bombshell had burst into it, but it was renovated and since then has been in the hands of the same family.

Official nomination as traditional shopFrom 1949 to 1964 Antigua Relojeria sponsored a very popular radio program (The Porter and the neighbours) and still many people remember it.

The main entrance has been renovated about 5 years ago trying to recover its original appearance.

They sell all kinds of watches and clocks, from popular modells to more exclusive ones.

There is also a watchmaker´s with two people repairing watches or clocks.Javier, Reyes and Nacho

Many of their clients have been buying their watches there since the beginning.

Antigua Relojeria is one of the traitional shops that has received the official  title as such by the Madrilian Town Hall.

Nowadays it is the third generation that manages the shop.
Genaro´s grandchildren, Javier, Reyes and Nacho will be happy to welcome you in their shop!
