The latest Seiko Boutique opens in Frankfurt
On July 17, 2015, around one hundred guests gathered in the prestigious Bockenheimer Strasse area of Frankfurt to celebrate the opening of a new Seiko Boutique, the largest one in Europe. The boutique was inaugurated in fine style; a traditional fanfare of trumpets was followed by the cutting of a ribbon.
2015 marks the 55th anniversary of Grand Seiko, Seiko's luxury brand. A special photographic exhibition about Grand Seiko, first seen at Baselworld in March, was presented in Frankfurt to coincide with the boutique opening. More than thirty photographs from this exhibition were on display as part of the RAY 2015 photography triennial exhibit, of which Seiko is a principal sponsor, on July 17 and 18, at the Thurn-und-Taxis Palais. In the exhibit, the diverse aspects of Grand Seiko attracted the attention not only of watch lovers, but also of the general public. More of these photographs will be exhibited at the Seiko Frankfurt boutique until the end of July.
