Tourneau partnered with design firm Eight Inc., based out of San Francisco, California to redesign the traditional watch-buying experience. Unlike traditional watch stores, cases at the Concept Store are accessed from all sides, eliminating the typical "behind-the-counter" format. Other innovations include a time-saving inventory system and the "One Minute Movie Clock."

Tourneau has the largest selection of certified used watches in the world.
Only parts from the manufacturer are used to restore the watch to its original form, unless replacing the part would diminish the authenticity, value, and/or originality.
In 2012, Tourneau partnered with Product Red to produce TOURNEAU (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition watches. 15% of the retail price of each (TOURNEAU)RED watch is contributed to the The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
