Johnsons’ history in the jewellery profession actually dates back further, to the 1860s, when Henry Johnson began trading as a watchmaker in Lutterworth.
Henry shared his skills with his son Harold, and in doing so began a family business that has been passed down through five generations and counting.
Johnsons has carried on its traditions in watchmaking throughout its 115 years and currently employs two specialist watchmakers so that most repairs can be made on its premises.
In celebration of its 115-year history, Johnsons will host a Black Tie and Diamonds Gala Charity Ball at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena in November; a premiere of the new James Bond film Skyfall at the Odeon cinema in Warwickshire; and a TW Steel and Lotus Day.
Over 15 luxury watch brands, such as Rolex, Tag Heuer, Omega, and Tissot, are stocked at Johnsons’ store alongside a vast array of jewellery brands that offer products from engagement rings to necklaces to bracelets.
