In London, on Tuesday the 14th Revolution co-hosted a cocktail reception with Seiko at its flagship Knightsbridge boutique. With a focus on Grand Seiko and Credor, the event showcased the latest and greatest pieces the Japanese manufacture has to offer. Alongside the expected champagne, canapés and chitchat, Jay Patel of the Japanese Knife Company was on hand with several blades to help further extol the best of Japanese craftsmanship.
As well as the current collections, a few of our guests brought along some remarkable vintage pieces; namely, a rarely seen 7A28-5000 Giugiaro Design, one of the very first Spring Drives and a 5 with a bracelet and dial no one present had seen before.
Opened in August this year, Knightsbridge’s Seiko store is the brand’s first dedicated UK point-of-sale. The new retail space and the re-defining of Seiko and Grand Seiko as separate entities at Baselworld 2017 indicates a very exciting future for Seiko, Grand Seiko and Credor in the UK.
Many thanks to Seiko and Profile PR for hosting the event with us and to everyone that came.
