The Apple Watch store is said to be located on a floor of jewelry and accessory stores, AppleInsider reported. Cartier, Boucheron, Chaumet, Mauboussin and Tiffany’s are among the high-end establishments on the said floor.
This Apple Watch store is expected to follow the continental style unique to Japan, where a floor space is divided according to different brands. Customers will then be assisted by staff designated to the smartwatch.
The store is also expected to open on the same date the smartwatch is released. On March 9, Apple announced that the Apple Watch will be available on April 24 to customers not only in Japan, but also in Australia, China, Canada, Germany, France, Hong Kong, the UK and the U.S.
Apple boasted that the Apple Watch is the most personal device created by the company.
“Apple Watch begins a new chapter in the way we relate to technology and we think our customers are going to love it. We can’t wait for people to start wearing Apple Watch to easily access information that matters, to interact with the world, and to live a better day by being more aware of their daily activity than ever before,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said during the announcement.
“Conceived, designed and developed as a singular product, Apple Watch merges hardware and software like never before. In Apple Watch, we’ve created three beautifully curated collections with a software architecture that together enable unparalleled personalization in a wearable device,” Jony Ive, Apple’s senior vice president of Design, said.
