The main level consists of specialized boutiques for such prestigious brands as Rolex, Cartier, Breitling, IWC, Panerai and TAG Heuer. The mezzanine is dedicated to Patek Philippe. Vacheron Constantin, Breguet, Blancpain, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Tudor and additional leading luxury brands have shop-in-shops on the upper lower. The lower level showcases a variety of timepieces including Longines, G-Shock, Hamilton, Tissot, Frederique Constant, Shinola, and Certified Pre-Owned styles, in addition to housing an expert service department.
