The newly opened 147 square metres boutique in Beijing’s famous Wang Fu Jing Street, one of the most wellknown high-end shopping destinations in the world, represents the fifth and largest of the Glashütte Original Boutiques in China. A watchmaker on the premises offers information and insights into his centuries-old art and puts his knowledge and experience to good use in answering any questions customers may have. Also awaiting customers is a luxurious lounge area, along with an interactive presentation allowing each visitor to explore in depth, using a touch-screen, the fascination of Glashütte Original.
At the end of December 2015 came the debut as well of the first Glashütte Original Boutique in Southeast Asia: the Boutique in Singapore welcomes visitors to the luxurious environment of the Marina Bay Sands resort.
On November 2015 the brand celebrated the inauguration of an additional exclusive point of sale in the Chinese capital: an artfully made metal ceiling in the Boutique shows the outlines of a mechanical movement, while a so-called “Manufactory Wall” presents the numerous filigreed components of Glashütte Original movements.
The expansion of Glashütte Original’s brand presence internationally has been accompanied by the continuing steady expansion of its Boutique Collection – selected timepieces that are available exclusively in its brand boutiques around the world. The most recent additions to this sought-after series are the new blue versions of the Senator Perpetual Calendar and the Senator Panorama Date Moon Phase. They find themselves in good company: in the Boutique Collection they encounter a sophisticated white gold version of the Pavonina ladies’ Swiss replica watch, along with colourful Sixties Iconic Collection models evocative of the legendary design of the nineteen sixties.
