Washington and Rolex announced the opening of a new point of sale in Manila at Newport Mall, Newport World Resorts. The new store is located in the heart of the luxury shopping precinct in Pasay City, Metro Manila.
The new 78-square metre point of sale offers professional expertise in an elegant setting, one that promotes a sense of harmony, discretion and intimacy with the brand.
ONE STORE, A WHOLE ROLEX WORLD
Every element of the interior design features the elegant Rolex aesthetic and radiates the values of the Rolex crown. Excellence, precision and attention to detail emanate from the careful calibration of colours and patterns in the fittings and furnishings. Sensitive lighting accentuates the beauty of a selection of Rolex watches, which are displayed in refined showcases lined with beige leather and finished with bronze trims.
A striking emerald aqua wall highlights the rich heritage of Rolex – its wave motif referencing the iconic Oyster, the world’s first waterproof wristwatch. This intense green is mirrored around the store, creating accents that harmonize a refreshed colour palette. The walls mix textures from walnut brown wood to beige-coloured stone.
