MSC Group unveils prestigious luxury watch and jewelry offerings on EXPLORA I and first Rolex boutique at sea

The mono-boutiques onboard MSC Group’s EXPLORA I offer some of the most in-demand luxury watch and jewelry brands, including a first-at-sea Rolex Boutique.

Explora Journeys, the luxury lifestyle hospitality brand of the MSC Group, has revealed the launch of an all-new luxury watch and jewelry retail offering on board EXPLORA I and EXPLORA II, partnering with three of the most desirable brands, renowned for craftsmanship, and reflecting Explora Journeys’ European heritage and commitment to excellence.

The three luxury offerings join the first-ever Rolex boutique on board a ship, which the MSC Group announced would be opened on the EXPLORA I earlier this month, as well as EXPLORA’s new sustainable luxury concept “The Journey” with its collection of more than 30 artisanal brands that offer craftsmanship with provenance and a commitment to caring for the planet and its people. (TMI, Vol. 24 No. 11).

     The two watch stores — Cartier and Panerai, as well as the watch and jewelry store of Piaget– will complement the retail offering of The Journey. Each shop will have a spacious and elegant environment, reflecting the design language of each of the brands through architecture and interior, offering a world class shopping experience, says the company.

Guests aboard EXPLORA I will also have the opportunity to purchase some of the most iconic timepieces by Rolex at a boutique entirely dedicated to the Swiss luxury watchmaker.

All five stores will open on board EXPLORA I on July 17, 2023, and will be available exclusively to Explora Journeys guests.
