My retailer is rich : Gübelin, Les Ambassadeurs

Gübelin renovation in the city of Calvin

Since last summer, clients of the completely renovated Gübelin boutique in Geneva have been welcomed on two floors. Designed by American architects Audrey O’Hagan, the concept of the luminous ground floor presenting watches as well as Gübelin High Jewellery is imbued with the Hamptons style, while the upper floor lounge provides a discreet and comfortable setting for those wishing to take their time.

Les Ambassadeurs have perfected an application that allows the most demanding customers to find the watch that most closely corresponds to their expectations from the 1800 models from 20 brands represented by the high-end retailer : users are guided in their approach by a set of parameters relating to the cases, bracelets, dials, functions, brands, movements and prices.
