Scotland’s Kartel Watches will open its first retail store in the historic coastal town of St Andrews in September.
Located on Church St in the heart of the town known as the home of golf, as well as being the site of a well-respected University, the store will tell the story of the brand, showcase the growing watch range and allow for face to face communication and feedback from customers.
Building on significant online success, both on their own website and via stockists such as Goldsmiths and WatchShop, the store will feature a customisation bar offering customers the chance to build a unique timepiece from a choice of over 250 case, dial and strap combinations.
The shop opening will accompany the launch of two new watch designs for the Christmas market, a square case model and a multi dial calendar model, both in stainless steel. A first for the brand and a sign of where this brand’s ambitions lie.
