FIVE LUXURY WATCH BOUTIQUES DEBUT AT AVENTURA MALL
AVENTURA, Fla. – (February 10, 2012) – Recently ranked the #2 most visited shopping mall in the U.S. by Travel + Leisure, Aventura Mall continues to enhance its already exceptional mix of stores with an array of exciting new retailers. With watch brands taking the lead, the center added three new timepiece boutiques since August and welcomes the opening of two more early this year.
Founded in 1850 as a small workshop in the Swiss Jura Mountains, TAG Heuer today is a leader in the luxury watch market. Since its inception, TAG Heuer has demonstrated a passion for accurately measuring even the smallest increment of time. It is the only watchmaker to develop a mechanical automatic chronograph movement that displays 1/10th, 1/100th and 1/1000th of a second, as well as the only brand to capture 1/10,000th of a second. Through a constant pursuit of excellence and innovation, TAG Heuer creates timepieces that are a defining symbol of state-of-the-art originality. TAG Heuer opened its second US flagship and first Florida store this month on level one near Nordstrom.
Breitling, the luxury brand known for producing fashionable and functional “Instruments for Professionals,” debuted its second U.S. store, and first in Florida, at Aventura Mall last November. As the developer and manufacturer of technically-oriented watches, Breitling was originally known for its specialization in chronographs and precision counters used for scientific and industrial purposes. The brand stands out with a collection of mechanical chronographs powered by their own Caliber 01 in-house movement and a complete line of “Breitling for Bentley” timepieces. Since 1884, Breitling continues to stand for precision, sturdiness and performance. Breitling is located on level two near Center Court.
Montblanc features its collection of iconic writing instruments, watches, fine jewelry and leather accessories. The new 1,485 square foot store prominently highlights Montblanc’s “TimeWriters” – chronographs in the Nicolas Rieussec and TimeWalker editions. In addition to men’s and ladies timepieces, the new location displays elaborate limited and special edition writing instruments and a selection of jewelry and leather pieces for both men and women. The contemporary store design features a beautiful Swarovski crystal curved glass-floating chandelier. VIP Clients are ushered into a private client room or can take a private tour of the exclusive Diamond Bar, available in only three boutiques nationwide. Montblanc opened in August 2011 on level one near Center Court.
Omega, the prestigious Swiss brand and member of Swatch Group Ltd., the world’s leading watch manufacturer has been synonymous with excellence, innovation and precision for more than 160 years. Faithful to its original pioneering spirit, Omega continues to make technical and watchmaking history with innovation in areas as diverse as sports timing, precision technology, and design – innovations that led to the conquest of ocean depths and space. Omega opened in August 2011 on level one near Center Court.
Swiss watch manufacturer Ulysse Nardin has been dedicated to excellence for over 165 years. Among the most reliable ever made, Ulysse Nardin's marine chronometers are sought by collectors around the world and the brand continues to be in the forefront of watch-making technology. This is Ulysee Nardin’s second stand-alone boutique in the US. The store will open in early 2012 on level two near Center Court.
