GINZA SIX EDITORS Vol.51
"Town of clock" which Ginza is the world, but is rare. If there is boutique of luxury maison and clock brand, there is authorized clock store which collected only perfect gems, and, besides, there is well-known store of antique watch, too. About clock, few thing is in a few state, but GINZA SIX is different in gangs. There is clock shop of the one and only that it is possible "to enjoy time". As for the life, is said that shift to using thing from monoconsumption, but GINZA SIX as for "the thing" as for "the thing" both; can profit.
By the way, it is the sixth floor at first to go to visit. The sixth floor is familiar in "Ginza TSUTAYA BOOKS", but clock lover goes to the corner. Promotion store of clock brand "Richart mill" of extremity that "RICHARD MILLE LIFESTYLE LABORATORY" in bookstore produces only clocks of tens of millions of yen class. We do not sell clock while saying "store" and are spot of the world one and only to announce Richart mill-related event and activity performed in all parts of the world.
Anyway, it is with athlete playing an active part in tennis, land, F1, golf in "family", and Richart mill performs support of art more in car event and the present age. It is duty of this "lifestyle laboratory" to show such a wide variety of activities to. It is sponsor on coverage day and displays classic car lace "Le Mans classical music" acting as main sponsor. Event that began because Richart mill that this was the brand founder was world-famous classic car collector. I had visited home of France, but did dozens of excellent cars fit into garage where we redecorated shed into? Therefore episode to go that it is super excellent car Lancia stole toss that was surprised most and buys bread for neighborhood. We remembered that we heard super high-end story that there was that there was that helmet box of door was just right for baguette case.
By the way, this display seems to be changed a few days later when display is to golf. It is the first to check here to know battle front of force and activity of brand. And if I come to want clock by any chance, is GO in boutique of two in neighborhood! There is in this. (really in that way there seems to be person who purchased)
By the way, come back to the first floor successively; and to "CITIZEN FLAGSHIP STORE TOKYO." Layout which store is located at the intersection of Mihara Street and cultivation of mutual friendship company street and cannot access directly from the hall. However, there is calm atmosphere thanks to the grace in extensive shop, and it is big merit that can receive explanation of clock relaxedly.
While we develop not only CITIZEN brand but also overseas clock brand which we put in affiliation here. In fact, we sell wide clocks which CITIZEN group pushes forward globalization, and included Switzerland and American influential brand.
In that attention "the Arnold & sun." In fact, here is the world only brand boutique. The U.K. of the end of 18th century has ancestors of brand and inherits know-how of the making of clock which successful horologer John Arnold and son established for mass production of marine high-precision clock for ship.
Few characteristic adopting 1 movement for 1 model other than the Arnold & sun. Therefore design completely links mechanism. It is the nature of clock enthusiast to sprout in such a detail. Besides, we take in hand in this way and are full of what we can appreciate and, for rarity which only 700-800 produce in the year, are had a valuable experience.
This latest GLOBE-TROTTER (all 1,780,000 yen ※ lower than + tax price) of this year. Structure that what a hemispheric terrestrial globe goes around in 24 hours and displays the time at the present of the world. We can thoroughly enjoy individual, original mechanism.
Go on the second floor with escalator of the CITIZEN side, last to "FRANCK MULLER GENEVE." FRANCK MULLER is "clock brand of gorgeous design" for person who does not very know a lot about clock and will be impression called "ability group that made many complexity mechanism" for clock lover. However, for me "brand which enjoys time." The hour hand jumps, and needle stops and incorporates roulette and enjoys time to drift and is brand with positive philosophy that it is said to enjoy the life.
It is corner of home collection of boutique "FRANCK MULLER future form" in the depths that want you to see here.
In fact, we let philosophy to "enjoy time" spread with FRANCK MULLER and add pressure to home Collection expanding relaxed time at home. We can purchase even online, but can almost see full collection if it is here. This is the world one and only, too.
As we use bizan number using for INDEX of clock for motif, it is revealed that anyone is "FRANCK MULLER". Therefore popularity of gift demand seems to be high, too. We check champagne glass (17,000 yen) just recently as we were looking for celebration to friend who got married. We customize number in sandblast.
Of course, as for the clock, both men's model and ladies' model are fulfilling. However, we exhibit super large amount of complexity clock which there is not of seeing in common clock shop.
By the way, giga toe agate Yong who saw this time is 31 million yen how! Mechanism called toe agate Yong is mechanism to turn parts group called escapement round and round entirely to cancel gravitational influence, and there are many people to be impressed deeply with to move. Besides, design and production and assembling are super difficult as this model becomes skeleton design having a perfect view of structure. It is special experience to be seen with such a rare clock. By the way, it is infiltrated under the pretext of coverage by VIP room as clock of such a level seems to wait on customers in back VIP room. We had you give particularly popular marron glace and champagne.
Finally, we do shopping with "FRANCK MULLER patisserie" to add. It is pleased when we take this to coverage as present.
Mechanical clock which reproduced concept called “ with gear and spring at "time born from the sun and month was machine of the highest peak that the human brought about. So not only we attach for fashion and enjoy, but also there is enjoying we know. GINZA SIX is place satisfying intellectual clock curiosity, and what is “ time? He/she tells answer ".
