Police were called to the Knightsbridge department store after 7.30pm last night after the alleged incident in the menswear section.
The 29-year-old was targeted for his Louis Vuitton timepiece, according to unconfirmed reports on social media.
His wounds are not life-threatening, the Metropolitan Police said.
No arrests have yet been made and police are still looking for the culprit.
Eyewitness Ronnie Chopra told MailOnline he was shopping nearby with his young daughter.
He said: "Whilst we were leaving we saw the blood on the floor and my daughter unknowingly walked through the blood.
"It's shocking that this can occur inside a store.
"And Harrods, no less, which is probably the most well known department store in the world."
A Metropolitan Police statement read: “Police were called at 7.33pm on Saturday to reports of a fight inside the Harrods store in Brompton Road, Knightsbridge.
"Officers attended and found a 29-year-old man with stab/slash wounds.
“Any witnesses who are yet to speak with police are asked to call 101."
This caller says crime has increased because it's no longer done in 'secret'
