Omega launches first travel retail store at Heathrow – 02/11/05

UK. This autumn will see the opening of luxury watch and jewellery brand Omega’s first UK travel retail store at London Heathrow Airport terminal one.

The Swatch Group-owned watchmaker is introducing a stand-alone store, stocking the entire international Omega watch range for men and women. The 59sq m outlet will also exclusively showcase the upmarket Bijoux jewellery range.

The collection will include the Deville Rattrapont, the stainless steel Seamaster Planet Ocean and the Bijoux collection, which features two jewellery ranges.

Designed to appeal to international and business travellers in T1, the new Omega store will be a stylish mix of contemporary and classic design, prominently featuring a blend of beech wood and Omega red. Showcased watch and jewellery collections will be complemented by visuals of Omega ambassadors, including Nicole Kidman.

BAA Managing Director UK Retail Colin Hargrave commented: “The UK’s first-ever Omega store is another prestigious travel retail first to add to the fantastic redeveloped offer to travellers within T1. Omega has seen the amazing opportunity for brands that travel retail offers over and above the High Street, and we are delighted to welcome them to the airport.

“This demonstrates our commitment to introduce further innovations and new brands, ensure that we constantly exceed the expectations of our passengers, and offer a truly great experience at our airports.”
