Lister Horsfall and Rolex

Our History


Thomas Lister Horsfall opened its doors in 1902 and today, over 116 years later, we remain an independent, family-owned and run jewellery and Swiss watch business. With our original showroom still based on Corn Market in Halifax, and with our Ilkley showroom opening in the 1970’s, we offer our customers a carefully curated selection of fine jewellery and Swiss watches coupled with an exceptional quality of service.

Generations of Jewellers

In 1902, Thomas Lister Horsfall began the family dynasty of jewellers. Since then, the business has been passed through the generations of the Lister Horsfall family. Now following in the footsteps of great-grandfather Thomas, his grandfather Walter and father Richard, Nick, the fourth-generation of Lister Horsfall, has led the business since 2006.

Rolex and Lister Horsfall

The partnership between Rolex and Lister Horsfall has grown from strength to strength since its inception in 1983, when Lister Horsfall become an Official Rolex Retailer. We are proud to be an Official Rolex retailer in Yorkshire.
