Luxury Swiss watch manufacturer Ulysse Nardin opened its third mono-brand Boutique in the United States at the Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park. To celebrate, an elite cocktail party at the hotel was hosted with special appearances by brand ambassadors- Russian-American virtuoso pianist Lola Astanova and baseball pitching legend Randy Johnson. In order to expand their elegant brand nationally, Ulysse Nardin joined with Jeffrey Khalaf and Michael Rosenberg of The Timepiece Collection in New Jersey to open the Boutique. The Boutique features a collection of over 100 of the company’s finest timepieces, including several models from the Limited Edition Boutique line.
As part of the celebration, and through a relationship with The Broadway Channel, Ulysse Nardin donated a Marine Chronometer Manufacture timepiece to the Actors Fund organization which will be auctioned off to support all professionals in the performing arts and entertainment who are in need. Tony Award-winner and Chairman of the Board of the Actors Fund, Brian Stokes Mitchell, was in attendance in addition to Oscar nominated producer and trustee of the organization, Steve Kalafer.
The Boutique is designed as homage to the brand’s nautical heritage with timepieces displayed in portholes and anchors hung on the walls. In addition to the New York boutique, Ulysse Nardin recently opened a boutique in Geneva, Paris and Singapore , joining the 18 boutiques that can currently be found around the globe.
The Limited Edition Boutique line includes the Blue Toro, the Boutique Freak Diavolo, the Blue Executive Dual Time and the Boutique Diver, and the company has plans to unveil several exclusive, new men’s complications later this year.
