Lange & Sohneboutique opened its doors on Bond Street this Week in partnership with Wempe. Chopard hoardings proudly advertises the impending renovation of its salon there. Cartier just revealed the spectacular refit of its store at 175-177 New Bond Street.

It includes a bar, drawing room,Replica Omega Watches dining area, and fully-equipped kitchen. The hidden gems of this refurbishment are the rooms to the right and their history.
London was, alongside New York and Paris, long ago, the third generation of Omega Replica Watches. They made Cartier the global business it is today. Louis, Pierre, and Jaques Omega Replica Watches were the third generation of Omega Replica Watches. They each chose one location to open a branch of their family business. In 1902, they opened the first London Cartier store at 4 Burlington Street. It quickly became a favorite of royalty and nobility, with Edward VII describing it as "the jeweller and king of jewellers". It moved to 175 New Bond Street, the current location, in 1909 under Jaques Cartier's management, the youngest grandson of founder Louis-Francois.
Jacques Cartier set up an English Artworks subsidiary workshop above the New Bond Street shop in the 1920s so that London could create its own products and not rely on Paris. The workshop is still in place and protects some of Cartier London’s most treasured creations. Meanwhile, the fourth floor houses Cartier London’s vast archive.
The boutique will offer a unique shopping experience for London clients. High Jewellery is mixed with the Tradition Collection alongside the finest jewellery and timepieces. This includes boutique editions of watches like Crash which were created in London in 1967. Accessories and fragrances are also available.mido replica Laurent Feniou (Managing Director of Cartier UK) summarizes the opening by saying that "With the reopening our New Bond Street boutique we are shining a spotlight on London's incredible history and heritage. New Bond Street will be alongside other Cartier temples, Paris and New York. We are sure that our guests will be delighted and surprised by the new boutique. It will showcase Cartier's best client services and excellence, combining tradition and modernity.
