A store that features high-end luxury watches, jewelry and accessories can’t showcase such beautiful objects to its discerning clientele in anything less than beautiful. With an art-collector owner whose passion for art and architecture are influenced by the likes of Richard Serra, Robert Rauschenberg, Ellsworth Kelly and Mies van der Rohe, the minimalist detailed lines of the space make Jack Ryan feel more like a museum than a retail store. Vitrines of starfire glass and teak cases caringly crafted by one of Austin’s finest woodworkers provide elegant backdrops to the exquisite time machines. With art from the owner’s own private collection interspersed amongst the watches – works of art themselves – Jack Ryan is a place within to visit, linger and savor.
