A New Way To Shop For Luxury Rolex Watches In Chicago
Leading luxury watch retailer Tourneau | Bucherer has reopened the iconic Rolex Boutique in Chicago, Illinois. Now at a location just two blocks north of its predecessor, the new boutique sits at 701 North Michigan Avenue, on Chicago’s famed, upscale Magnificent Mile.
The Rolex Boutique Chicago is designed to add comfort and sophistication to the shopping experience while guiding visitors in their discovery of esteemed Rolex timepieces. The inviting environment is built as a destination for luxury – enhancing the realm of retail and promoting a sense of harmony and intimacy with the brand.
Chicago residents and knowledgeable tourists will recognize the esteem of Magnificent Mile. A district of the city’s downtown neighborhood, this high-end area encompasses a 13-block stretch of North Michigan Avenue running from the banks of the Chicago River to the south, to Oak Street to the north. Since the early 1900s, Magnificent Mile has continued to offer exceptional shopping and retail. More than 450 retailers, major department stores and international designers and boutiques have selected Magnificent Mile as their home. The Rolex Boutique is situated alongside upscale retailers such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Tiffany & Co.
Adding to its prestige, the Magnificent Mile is in the heart of Chicago's famous culinary scene, enticing guests with world-famous restaurants, bars and eateries, encompassing a range of cuisines.
The tree-lined street is also home to some of the city’s most notable landmarks, including the Wrigley Building, Tribune Tower, the Chicago Water Tower and the Drake Hotel. The Rolex Boutique pays homage to this iconic setting through a custom-designed stucco work on view to visitors and shoppers.
The Excellence Of Rolex In A New Chicago Boutique
A whole Rolex world under one roof – every element of the new Chicago boutique has been designed to highlight the elegant Rolex aesthetic while radiating the values of the Rolex crown. Excellence, precision and attention to detail emanate from the careful calibration of colors and patterns in the fittings and furnishings.
The Rolex Boutique Chicago is housed in one of the city’s designated landmark buildings – taking up 2,200 square feet of retail space on the ground floor of the Warwick Allerton Hotel. Built in 1924, the iconic building features an Italian Renaissance-inspired façade with beautifully arched windows that retain the unique character of the period.
Tourneau | Bucherer complemented the Rolex Boutique Chicago’s classical styling with carefully selected design elements. Updated with details in line with the Rolex palette yet keeping true to the historical elements of the building, the boutique welcomes guests with a brass-finished turnstile, surrounded by honed travertine walls, which bring a similar tonality of the historical façade inside of the boutique. American walnut wood ceilings watch over the sales lounge and private viewing space, while a wall crafted from green Alpiverio marble adorns the main showroom area to complement the beauty of the Rolex collection.
Celebrating the city’s unique features, the Rolex Boutique features a custom stucco that highlights the Chicago skyline and the famed Wrigley building – instilling a distinctive, cosmopolitan ambience throughout the visitor experience. A centrally located display fixture showcases the exceptional Rolex collection amongst a mix of graphics and a central screen, using a mixed-media approach to highlight the technical ingenuity of the timepieces.
