The newest location of the largest multi-brand watch retailer in the U.S. underwent a 3,000 s/f fit-out that allows it to house  more than 17 premier luxury watch brands and feature specialized boutiques for Rolex, Cartier, and Jaeger-LeCoultre, among  others.

Shawmut’s scope of work spanned 18 weeks and involved extensive storefront work that included the installation of stone,  glass, and 14 clocks.

The team also assembled the store’s centerpiece: a GFRG ceiling dome with silver leaf application. Team members drilled  individual holes, the width of a single strand of hair, then threaded more than 550 fiber optic lights through the holes to  complete the piece in three days.

Every element was custom-created for the store, including the rounded Makassar ebony and bronze display cases that Shawmut installed.
