The watch store showcases the world’s most prestigious brands including Omega, Breitling, Chopard and Longines in a duty free environment.
Scott Norris, executive general manager commercial services, at Perth Airport, explains: “We are very excited that passengers flying internationally from Perth Airport have the opportunity to experience our first dedicated luxury watch store with a selection from the world’s most sought after premium Swiss brands.”
The gateways says the opening of the JR/Watch Co. boutique builds on the improved JR/Duty Free offering at Perth Airport.
Earlier this year, the T1 departures duty free store was refitted and its retail range includes high-end goods such as luxury handbags, Western Australian pearls, cosmetics, perfume and a range of wines and liquor.
The new walk-through arrivals JR/Duty Free store is larger than ever at Perth Airport, and offers an extensive brand and product range.
Norris adds: “We have worked closely with the James Richardson Group since 2013 to deliver innovative and contemporary stores, and it’s exciting that our passengers can now experience world-class airport retail.”
The Terminal 1 JR/Duty Free landside departures store is currently under construction and will open soon.
International passengers can browse through products with family and friends who are not travelling, and the store will provide an opportunity for non-travellers, including airport staff, to buy selected duty-paid products.
As with all products bought at JR/Duty Free prior to departure, passengers can choose between taking their purchase with them when they travel or picking it up on arrival into Perth from the JR/Duty Free arrivals store located before inbound immigration and baggage reclaim.
