Harrods has opened its first Fine Watch Room outside of the Knightsbridge store at Heathrow Airport’s new Terminal 2.
Inspired by the look and feel of the original Fine Watch Room at Harrods, the 1,700sqft travel retail space has pride of place within the departures lounge.
Described as ‘contemporary and masculine’ the space reflects the luxury of Harrods’ own Fine Watch Room which opened late in 2011, with black granite entrances, limestone mosaic pathways with gold accents, parquet flooring and glass cylindrical tanks. An egg-shaped glass exterior greets shoppers and products are displayed in floor to ceiling display cases.
The retail outlet boasts screened private consultation areas and watches from Montblanc, Longines, Rado, Baume et Mercier, TAG Heuer, Zenith, Maurice Lacroix, Frederique Constant, Omega, Tudor (launching in September), Jaeger-LeCoultre, IWC, Chanel, Hublot and Chopard are among 30 brands being offered for sale. The collection of watches has been curated to cater for all tastes and price points.
