The new Lionel Meylan boutique
at 14, Rue de Lausanne 14 in Vevey

Twenty-six years ago, he opened his first boutique on Vevey’s Place du Marché. Since this summer, Lionel Meylan has taken up residence at 14, Rue de Lausanne. A distinctive location where the resident watchmaker once again occupies a prime position.

A subtle sense of déjà vu? The address has changed, the interior design is quite different, yet the new Lionel Meylan is pervaded by the same, almost palpable philosophy that the family and its team have been cultivating for the past 26 years: an authentic love of watchmaking matched by a genuine desire to communicate, to advise and to share. Lionel, Julien and Yannick Meylan, together with their staff members, continue to convey a passion for beauty as expressed through the finest watch brands and the most refined jewellery creations.

Spotlight on the watchmaker

As has been the case across the past two decades, the in-house watchmaker remains firmly centre-stage. His workbench is placed at the heart of the boutique, within clear view of the visitors who can thus observe him at work, request explanations about a timepiece, or tips on maintenance, as well as asking him to examine a watch, change a battery or strap, or make an adjustment. He vividly embodies the welcoming and service-oriented attitude to which Lionel Meylan remains firmly attached.
