Luxury Swiss watch manufacturer Ulysse Nardin, the leader in timepiece invention and innovation, announced the opening of a mono-brand Boutique in Abuja, the capital of Nigeria.
The official opening took place on December 10th attended by 300 guests including Dr. Daniel Cavegn, Deputy Head of Mission accompanied by several members of the Nigerian government. Mr. Patrik Hoffmann, CEO of Ulysse Nardin and Mr. Deremi Ajidahun, local partner of the brand, were very enthusiastic.
It is with great honor that Ulysse Nardin opens its first mono-brand boutique in Africa, namely in Nigeria, Abuja. Having a great following and many Ulysse Nardin enthusiasts in Nigeria, we decided to bring the Ulysse Nardin experience close to the watch connoisseurs in Abuja. In this new boutique, some of the most unique and exclusive timepieces will be on display, specified Patrik Hoffmann.
Located on Gana street, the most attractive place with luxury stores and hotels, the 50 square meters Boutique is designed as homage to the company’s nautical heritage. Decorated with wood furniture, timepieces are displayed in portholes.
The boutique features iconic timepieces like Perpetual Calendar, where the calendar can be set forward and backward with ease, the Freak, which tells time by its movement, not by its hands and the astronomical wristwatch Moonstruck. Watch aficionados can also find the innovative Ulysse Anchor Tourbillon recently crowned with Tourbillon Prize by the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève and the brand’s finest timepieces including Stranger, Sonata, Classico, Dual Time Manufacture and Jade for ladies. And, the Marine collection that anchors Ulysse Nardin’s past to the ocean with today’s exemplary Marine Chronometer Manufacture.
This boutique unveiling in Nigeria is the third this year for Ulysse Nardin with the new boutique in Miami Design District and the one in Dubai. The beholder of six exquisite families of watches, Ulysse Nardin will flow forward, stretching the limits of design, engineering and technology, and, of course, surprising watch fans around the globe.
