Our Story 

Harland Watch and Diamond was founded in Modesto California by Harland Hoghren in 1945 with the hope of being a premier provider of luxury watches. Harland’s goal was to keep the store more family oriented, by not just being another mega store making sales but by building relationships with the community. Today, Ben Barnes, as owner of Harland Watch and Diamonds continues that tradition. Ben started work for Harland in 1992, he, however, started in the Jewelry Industry in his earlier years. Ben also spent many years learning about the Watch Industry. As well received a Gemology Diploma from the Geological institute of America in 1994 certifying him as a Gemologist. Over the years Harland has relocated to Reno Nevada in 2008 to serve the Northern Nevada area and continue to provide that luxury watch buying experience. With a relocation in 2016 to better serve our clients. To maintain the heritage of Harland, Ben has amassed a small expert team to assist you with their knowledge on your watch buying journey. Whether it’s your 1st or 100th watch Harland Watch and Diamond will happily guide you.
