Tomorrow marks the opening of a very special exhibition in London hosted by a very special retailer. I am of course talking about the Marcus Anniversary “Unique Masterpieces” Exhibition that is scheduled to run from the 4th of July until the 2nd October 2012, and is a must see for any luxury watch enthusiast who finds themselves even remotely close to the UK in the coming months.
The exhibition has been timed to coincide with the Olympic Games and celebrates three major events in the life of the store’s owner, Marcus Margulies: his late father’s arrival in England 80 years ago, the opening of the Marcus store 10 years ago, and his 70th birthday.
For those not familiar with the Bond Street icon, Marcus has built an exceptional reputation in London, and indeed across Europe, as a premiere retailer and is well known for its exceptional customer service and awe-inspiring line-up of high-end brands.
The exhibition will feature specifically commissioned “Unique Masterpieces” and a collection of “Haute Joaillerie” by a number of well-known Swiss watch manufacturers including Audemars Piguet, Blancpain, Breguet, Hublot, MB&F, Urwerk, Greubel Forsey, Richard Mille, Franck Muller and Piaget. In addition a very rare collection of seventy vintage Audemars Piguet timepieces dating from 1899 to 1970 will also be on display, a worthy event in itself.
For their part MB&F have created the gorgeous HM4 Piece Unique in black titanium you see pictured throughout this article, which I must say I am very much looking forward to seeing in the flesh
Stay tuned, as we will be publishing all the images of the “Unique Masterpieces” in the coming days as they become available. In the meantime if you’re anywhere near London and decide to go check the exhibition out please send me an email, as I would love to hear what you think!
Anyone else getting a cool “The Dark Knight Rises” vibe from this pic?
