Apple have confirmed the creation of Apple Watch displays inside department stores in London, Paris and Tokyo. All three stores-within-a-store are now official, with entries on Apple’s website. As we previously noted, the locations are Selfridges in London, Galeries Lafayette in Paris and Isetan Shinjuku in Tokyo.
All three are opening on 10th April, the same day as the Apple Watch will be available for preview and pre-orders in Apple’s own retail stores, and are being given a high-profile presence in each department store.
In Selfridges, the Apple Watch display will be part of its Wonder Room, a room devoted to watches and jewellery and described by the store as “a unique destination that plays host to the world’s most desirable brands.”
The Apple Watch will initially be available in nine countries: United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong and Japan. Apple has already added promotional images in its retail stores, with customers able to make appointments to try on the watch from 10th April.
