Danny Goldsmith, Owner
GOLDSMITH & COMPLICATIONS
Strategically atop The Wine Room Kitchen & Bar in Delray Beach, it takes intention for customers to meander upstairs to Goldsmith & Complications. But once inside the elegant boutique, the eclectic array of watches and jewelry will surely blow your mind. Fueled by his fascination for the intricate artistry of handmade timepieces crafted by small independent companies, Goldsmith has come to town to put Delray on the map as a global watch destination, like Geneva and New York City. Timing, as they say, is everything.
Q: Why carry G-Shock when you carry such expensive watches?
A: I absolutely love G-Shock. I wouldn’t carry something in my boutique that I wouldn’t wear myself. For years, G-Shock has been making highly functional watches that are fun, durable, and highly collectible. They appeal to everyone, including people who have higher-end timepieces in their collection.
Q: What are those unique sculptures with watch pieces floating inside?
A: Those are works of art made by Berd Vay’e. Each sculpture contains hundreds—and sometimes thousands—of vintage watch parts. They’re suspended in Lucite that’s shaped like everything from skulls and cubes to chess pieces. To celebrate our store’s grand opening this year, I created a limited-edition collection of mini-baseball bats that include a mix of watch parts and pieces from a bat used in a major league game. They’re all great conversation pieces.
Q: Are you an Authorized Watch Dealer?
A: Yes, I am an authorized dealer for all the new watches and clocks in the boutique, including brands like Arnold & Son, L’Epée, Oris, and Purnell. In addition to new timepieces, I also carry pre-owned watches. But I have to say that my true passion is the small independent watchmakers who produce pieces in extremely limited numbers, like Urwerk, which produces about 150 watches annually.
