Exemplary service, attention to quality and detail, and representation of world-class brands are the cornerstones to Long Island’s London Jewelers, founded in 1926 by Charles London. A self-taught clockmaker, Charles built his reputation by repairing wristwatches and selling clock repair services to the magnificent houses along Long Island’s storied Gold Coast. His daughter Fran, and son-in-law Mayer Udell became deeply entrenched in the business, working alongside Charles in their Glen Cove
store as London Jewelers grew in prominence and repute. Now, 88 years since its founding, London Jewelers is frequented by generations of loyal clients who celebrate their most special moments – and their love of horology – with Mayer Udell’s son, Mark, his wife Candy and the extended London Jewelers family.
Upon entering the business in 1973, Mark and Candy cultivated London Jewelers into the dynamic retail experience that it is recognized as today, expanding to encompass five elegant
locations across Long Island that bear the London Jewelers name, and forming relationships with the world’s most revered brands. Today, they work alongside members of the family’s fourth generation, which includes Randi, Scott, Jessica and Zach Udell, each playing an integral role in the family business.
“London Jewelers is ever evolving as we strive to be leaders of innovation in our industry,” Candy remarked. “We have come a long way since 1926 and look to the future with plans
for continued growth. We are always working to provide an exceptional shopping experience for our most valued clientele.”
Each of London Jewelers’ five salons offers a welcoming atmosphere and the feeling of understated elegance, perfectly in line with the desires of Long Island’s luxury shoppers. The flagship store is located in the Americana Manhasset and showcases more than 60 elite brands, with fine Swiss timepieces represented in a 4,000 square-foot Watch Salon, exceptional jewelry…Read More

For those who remember, about a year ago I added the IWC Portugieser Chronograph Classic to my collection with the help of iW readers, who graciously weighed in on the decision. I like to always keep an open mind with watches, but one important rule that I do enforce is being able to see myself enjoy any watch I buy many years later. The IWC conformed to that rule. Based on that purchase, I had originally expected the selection process for the next watch would be just as daunting, if not more so. But that wasn’t the case at all. Just weeks after I purchased the IWC,... Continue Reading
