The inaugural opening of Lugaro’s new downtown location GWC (Global Watch Company) in Cathedral Place (925 West Georgia) was exciting and very well attended. The red carpet was rolled out, stanchions set up and velvet ropes guided VIP guests of Lugaro and RBC into the amazing new 800 sq. ft. store with vaulted ceiling and towards the sweet sounds of Max Zipurksy Jazz Trio.
GWC showcased their luxury timepieces, an array of fine diamond jewellery and the spectacular 7.75 carat intense yellow diamond ring was on display overseen by two attendants in the main hall. Many times it was difficult to view the beautiful pieces because of the clusters of admirers that could not get enough of the sparkling wonders.
The invite only guests enjoyed wine tasting by LaStella Winery, Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Rose Champagne was served with style by the lovely representatives of Lifford Wine & Spirits BC, beer tasting by Cariboo Brewing, and through the sky-high windows there was the view of gorgeous McLaren luxury sports cars lined up curbside.
The ceremonial ribbon was cut simultaneously by Sassan Pourfar, VP of Lugaro, Steve Agopian, President of Lugaro/Co-Founder of GWC, Hazem Sbayteh, Country Manager & Omega Brand Manager at Swatch Group Canada and Heather Deal, Vancouver City Councillor.
Sandy Chen presented a beautiful evening for those with an eye for quality, luxury and exquisite taste. Congratulations to GWC on the launch of their fourth location in beautiful BC!
