Beginning last December, Glashütte Original Hong Kong Harbour City Boutique welcomes watch connoisseurs from all over the world every day. On Tuesday, March 13, 2018, the German watchmaker held an exclusive ceremony to celebrate the official opening of the boutique. Glashütte Original CEO Thomas Meier, Kevin Rollenhagen, a member of the Swatch Group’s expanded management board, and Hong Kong and Macau managing director attended the ceremony and welcomed guests. Thomas Meier emphasized the importance of boutiques in the comments: ‘In the new boutiques, brand customers can get first-hand experience, not only the elegance and refinement of German timepieces, but also the passion, Focus and perfect technology. ‘
The opening of the Hong Kong Harbour City boutique opened a new chapter in Glashütte’s original 170-year history. The lion dance performance after the store’s opening ribbon-cutting ceremony also demonstrated the harmony and complementarity of Eastern and Western cultures. Afterwards, guests were invited to relax and take a close look at extraordinary timepieces from Saxony watchmakers. Just a few hours ago, the news media first previewed and tried on the new Senator Chronograph Senator Chronograph-Metropolis Edition. An original watchmaker from Glashütte also came to the scene to show guests the watchmaking skills.
Hong Kong Harbour City’s new boutique expands the brand’s successful operation in the Asian market. Harbour City is located in the beautiful Victoria Harbour in the city centre, bringing together many of the world’s top brands. Following the informal opening on December 9, 2017, Glashütte Original is ready to set sail from the fascinating port and lead local residents and global visitors into the world of German watchmaking excellence.
The exquisite ‘Swan Neck’ welcomes guests at the door of the boutique of the Maritime Building: the design of the door handle is inspired by one of Glashütte’s original features: gooseneck-style fine-tuning. After entering the boutique, modern and classic decoration and harmonious color concepts not only reflect the essence of simplicity, excellence and practicality, but also have been carefully laid out to ensure that guests have a relaxed and exciting brand experience. The interior decoration is impressive. The Calibre 37 mechanical movement equipped with the brand’s latest chronograph has become the main theme, and there are more showcases on the wall to display the current series of timepieces.
The striking Wonder Wall lives up to its name and provides guests with a unique perspective on Glashütte’s original self-made movements and components and insight into the mysteries of watchmaking art. On the other side of the store is a comfortable and quiet lounge area where guests can learn more about the brand and the fascinating history of the famous German watchmaking town of Glashütte.
