Swiss luxury watch manufacture Ulysse Nardin and its exclusive retail partner, The Hour Glass are proud to announce the opening of the first Ulysse Nardin flagship Boutique in Singapore at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands. With over 2 decades of close exclusive-retailer relationship, the new standalone Ulysse Nardin boutique signifies a milestone of the strong bond shared between The Hour Glass and the independent watch manufacture.
“We are extremely excited and proud to officiate the inaugural Ulysse Nardin boutique in Singapore. The new boutique is a triumphant affirmation of the brand’s foothold in the region for over 20 years, retailing through The Hour Glass. It is a progressive leap marking the brand’s growth, and an opportunity to bring about a totally new experience through the diverse array of timepieces in this inspiring and inviting retail environment”, says Mr. Patrik Hoffmann, CEO of Ulysse Nardin.
Set to provide an unprecedented retail experience, the Ulysse Nardin boutique spans close to 1,000 square feet – the largest flagship store in Asia. Housed under one roof, horology buffs can feast their eyes on the complete collection of the Swiss marque’s diverse range, from its legacy marine chronometers to award-winning high complications and a dedicated collection of ladies mechanical gems.
Modeled closely after the Ulysse Nardin Baselworld wooden striped booth façade in Switzerland, the Singapore boutique also features a world premiere 3-dimensional globe dome with reference to the brand’s famous high complication, the “Moonstruck” watch dial. Encircled within the oversized marine porthole, the iridescent dome is a signature stamp of originality.
