Western Canada’s first Rolex boutique is ticking along…
We lost a bar and gained… a Rolex store.
Western Canada’s first-ever Rolex boutique is now open in what used to be the bar of the Shangri-La Hotel.
The design for the 2,000 square-foot space (pictured) was inspired by the iconic Rolex Oyster, the world’s first waterproof wristwatch designed in 1926 by the Geneva, Switzerland-based horologer. Complete with laser-etched aqua glass, cream-coloured leather, bronze detailing and private showrooms, the space offers a very luxurious shopping experience befitting some pretty pricey timepieces.
If nothing else, it’s good timing…
