In a historic moment for Cartier in Hong Kong, the revered "King of Jewellers" celebrated the grand opening of its Asian Flagship store in Prince's Building, Central on November 26. This boutique, a veritable treasure trove and a true jewel of the House, is destined to be a landmark on equal stature as the splendid boutiques on the famous avenues of Paris, London and New York. The occasion was also a significant milestone for Cartier in Asia, for it was at this very location that Cartier opened its first boutique in Asia in 1970. On the special evening, the unveiling of Cartier’s Flagship boutique was celebrated with an opening ceremony officiated by Mr. Pierre Rainero, Style and Heritage Director of Cartier International, Mr. Nigel Luk, Managing Director of Cartier Far East, internationally renowned actors Mr. Tony Leung, Ms Fan Bingbing and Ms Han Ye-seul, as well as Mr. Y.K. Pang, Chief Executive of Hongkong Land. The ceremony was followed by dramatic pyrotechnics that displayed against the radiant facade of the new flagship boutique, lighting up the Central sky.
