£2.5 million has been invested in the luxurious stores which brings Chisholm Hunter’s portfolio of retail outlets across the UK to 24.

Bluewater is now one of Chisholm Hunter’s most prestigious stores and the £1.5 million investment has seen the jeweller doubling its space within one of the UK’s leading shopping centres. The luxurious space includes both a VIP area as well as a champagne bar to create an exclusive customer experience.

The store is offering an extended range of high end, signature Chisholm Hunter diamond rings and jewellery manufactured by our own master craftsmen, as well as a fine selection of luxury Swiss watches.

Chisholm Hunter has also just opened its first flagship Luxury Watch Boutique in Glasgow which is set to be Scotland’s must-visit watch destination.

£1 million has been invested in the high-end store in Glasgow’s Argyll Arcade, which features exclusive brands Breguet, Blancpain and Glashutte Original.

Breguet, the brand worn by iconic figures through the ages including Winston Churchill, Napoleon Bonaparte and Marie Antoinette is known for its luxury watches, some of which are priced at well over £1 million. Chisholm Hunter offers Breguet watches ranging from £7,000 to well over £100,000. Founded in 1775 by Abraham-Louis Breguet, the brand creates watches which are masterpieces with unrivalled precision.

Whilst Blancpain, established in 1735 in the Swiss Jura by Jehan-Jacques, is the world’s oldest watchmaker. Timepieces are available at Chisholm Hunter ranging from around £6,000 to over £40,000. Blancpain is passionate about innovation and this quest for invention is still a driver to this day as the brand commits to pushing the boundaries of watchmaking.

Germany’s Glashutte Original watches available from Chisholm Hunter start from £4,000 reaching £80,000. The brand’s roots reach back to 1845 and embodies innovative German watchmaking where traditional craft skills meet state-of-the-art production technologies. The result is the creation of exclusive timepieces which boast both extreme precision and timeless elegance.

Chisholm Hunter’s flagship store will also stock Parmigiani Fleurier and Bremont amongst other luxury premium brands.

The retail space – which extends over two floors – features a VIP viewing room complete with champagne bar to provide the ultimate high-end shopping experience.

The investment in the new stores follows the company almost doubling it sales over the last four years making it the fastest growing multiple jeweller in the UK.

Harry Brown, Chisholm Hunter’s Managing Director is proud to be opening the two new stores as the company remains committed to further growth.

He said: “This is an important time for Chisholm Hunter and the opening of our two new prestigious stores underlines our ambition to grow both north and south of the border.

“We have doubled the size of our store within Bluewater and are proud to be offering a premium shopping experience which will exceed all expectations.

“The launch of our Glasgow flagship is also an important milestone for the company because as well as being Scotland’s largest jeweller, Chisholm Hunter is also a family business which was first established in the city in 1857. This store illustrates our commitment to Glasgow and we remain focused on showcasing the world’s leading brands while providing a premium shopping experience which exceeds all expectations.”
