WATCH FACES: Independent watchmakers star at grand opening of Cellini Jewelers in Manhattan

Cellini Founder and President Leon Adams.

Cellini threw a grand opening party for its new Park Avenue flagship store on Tuesday with an intimate private reception.

Hosted by Cellini founder and president Leon Adams, guests were given a tour of the salon, which is filled with the most precious jewelry, gems, and timepieces from more than 30 of the world’s top watchmakers.

“Our goal is to offer the very best in one location, so our patrons can compare and discover jewelry and watches that they simply can’t get anywhere else. And if our customers don’t see the jewelry they are looking for, we are equipped to make it for them. We have access to some of the rarest gems on Earth: diamonds and gems of all shapes, sizes, and colors. We regularly create Cellini signature jewelry pieces incorporating these important gems, tailored to meet and exceed our customer’s dreams,” Mr Adams.


Watch brands on display include historic watchmaking maisons such as Girard-Perregaux, Jaeger-LeCoultre, and Vacheron Constantin, as well as independent watchmakers who first got their start in America at Cellini, such as A. Lange & Söhne and De Bethune.

Guests of the grand opening event also got the first glimpse of rare new timepieces, including the US debut of the Bovet Recital 22 “Grand Recital,” as well as new pieces by MB&F, Greubel Forsey, Urban Jürgensen, Laurent Ferrier, H. Moser & Cie, and Urwerk.
