History

West began its existence in 1720 as West Sons on the city’s Capel Street. It transferred to College Green in 1845 and to 102 Grafton Street in 1912.

Queen Victoria gave West the royal warrant as her watchmaker, and once bought two replicas of the Tara Brooch from the company. The Lord Lieutenant of Ireland was another customer. The company also created the original 22-carat gold chain of office used by the Lord Mayor of Dublin and one replica.

West moved to 33 Grafton Street in 1965. West retail closed on 13 February 2010 and had been in existence for 290 years.
