Horology—the art and science of time—has long interested House of Horology owner Lawrence Leyderman. He spent years working with his dad’s midtown watch-repair shop before he opened his own store featuring his own time pieces. The 815-sqaure-foot space below ground in Soho showcases Leyderman’s debut Bedlam collection of watches that are sporty and chic with unusual features, like a large face, chronograph dial, thick leather straps, stainless-steel water-resistant cases, and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. If you’re more traditional, House of Horology also offers a nice selection of classic pieces from the seventies through nineties from brands like Mondaine, Aeronautica, Bulova, and Festina. Straight to the back of the small space, a modest lounge area with leather couches and a TV welcomes guests to sit, relax, peruse watch books from nearby bookshelves, wait on their watch repairs, and sip on available drinks delivered by Leyderman from the adjacent kitchenette.
