Opening on West Nanjing Road, Shanghai
This is Glashütte Original’s third mono-brand boutique in China following the opening of the first two based in Beijing Oriental Plaza and Shanghai Xin Tian Di area. In the morning of December 2, Glashütte Original held an official opening ceremony where Mr. Yann Gamard, CEO of Glashütte Original, Ms. Susan Chen, President of Swatch Group China, and Ms. Linda Wan, Vice President of Glashütte Original China, cut the ribbon together.
After the ceremony, guests were invited to explore the boutique, which is designed to reflect purity, clarity, functionality as well as ultimate comfort, and which also includes a customer lounge.
The latest timepieces – notably the innovative Calibre 37 - made their debut in the West Nanjing Road Boutique. In addition, Glashütte Original displays its entire collection in the new boutique.
Taking advantage of the approaching holiday season, a typical German Christmas market was set up on the opening day as a special surprise.
Re-opening at the Nicolas G. Hayek Center, Tokyo
Just two days later, on the afternoon of December 4, Glashütte Original held the official opening ceremony of the newly refurbished boutique inside the Nicolas G. Hayek Center, in Tokyo’s prestigious Ginza district.
The Nicolas G. Hayek Center is the world’s first building dedicated solely to watches and was designed by internationally recognized Japanese architect Shigeru Ban. The Center serves as a flagship complex with six individual boutiques of the Swatch Group brands Glashütte Original, Breguet, Blancpain, Jaquet Droz, Omega and Swatch.
After renovation, this boutique has been re-opened to serve as a showcase of the German watch brand and its rich heritage. In addition to the most recent novelties, Glashütte Original displays here its entire collection of timepieces.
