The prestigious Swiss watchmaker OMEGA has opened its newest boutique at the Casino de Monte-Carlo in Monaco. In a country with a reputation for excellence and style, the store opening represents a significant moment for OMEGA, and the brand celebrated the occasion with a special evening event attended by His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco and the actress Naomie Harris.
Since its creation in 1848, OMEGA has been dedicated to innovation, record precision, audacious design, pioneering spirit and a tradition of quality. Still today, the brand is steadily growing and extending its network of boutiques every year.To officially open its doors in Monaco, a ribbon cutting ceremony took place with OMEGA President and CEO, Raynald Aeschlimann, who stood alongside Prince Albert II, Naomie Harris, and Florence Ollivier, the General Manager of Swatch Group France.
Prince Albert II also spoke to guests and gave his thoughts about the evening: “I’ve had the pleasure of attending several OMEGA events in the past especially those linked to sports. Most recently, I was with them for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro during their role as Official Timekeeper, and I am delighted to welcome them here in Monaco”.
Considering the monarch’s Olympic Games connection with OMEGA, he was then presented with an OMEGA Seamaster Planet Ocean “PyeongChang” Limited Edition watch, proudly presented by Mr. Aeschlimann.
Like all OMEGA boutiques worldwide, the interior design concept in Monaco incorporates the themes of water, earth and time. This includes the effective use of glass, reconstituted zebrawood and furniture pieces made with attractive leather. With an intimate, luxurious atmosphere, it’s a chance for visitors to browse the brand’s extensive selection of Constellation, Seamaster, De Ville and Speedmaster timepieces, as well as its Fine Jewellery pieces.
