The evening’s biggest star, however, was the new 300-sq ft RAYMOND WEIL flagship boutique. After the ribbon cutting ceremony, eager guests were ushered into the store’s luxurious and lavish realm. Awash in cream and dark chocolate tones, and accentuated by mood lighting and plush armchairs, the boutique enticed guests with a comprehensive selection of RAYMOND WEIL timepieces, including the Parsifal, Shine, Nabucco, and Maestro collections.

Guests with a keen eye for exclusivity were undoubtedly thrilled by the freelancer Crazy Time for ladies, a limited edition collection exclusive to the flagship boutique. The chic selection comes in four boldly coloured models with matching dials and straps in poppy, lilac, emerald and orangeade. Each watch is a sparkling wonder that features 66 diamonds on the case and 12 diamonds on the dial. Powered by a Swissmade automatic movement visible through a window on the dial, the model is a gem of a watch – and a fitting timepiece to crown the lively unveiling of RAYMOND WEIL’s latest retail milestone.
