The Page and Cooper Club Launch
We launched the Page and Cooper Club in style on Monday night. We were joined by four of our fabulous watch brands; Fortis, Hanhart, Laco and our newest addition Garrick. The setting for the evening of horology was The Whip in Mayfair. The Whip is located above the Running Horse the oldest pub in Mayfair, decorated with vintage furniture that once lived in the Ritz Hotel in Paris, The Whip was the perfect location for our launch. Upholstered with bright, beautiful handmade jockey silks and quirky Kentucky Derby racing memorabilia, The Whip provided a stunning backdrop for the selection of intriguing timepieces displayed on the night.
The Whip have appeared in the ‘Diffords Guide’ under London’s Best Cocktail Bars and with good reason, they created a special one off cocktail especially for the event. The aptly named ‘Spare Thyme’ Page and Cooper cocktail was enjoyed by everyone in attendance. We managed to persuade them to share the delicious recipe with us and you can find it over on our Facebook page. We will certainly be having a go at recreating it!
The evening brought together a selection of our watchmakers, customers, watch enthusiasts, press, style bloggers and friends. It was an opportunity for everyone to mingle and catch up with the latest releases from Fortis, Garrick, Hanhart, and Laco, we were lucky enough to reveal UK watch exclusives from each of the brands! We also had a special guest in attendance, conceptual artist Rolf Sachs. Rolf has designed a collection of watches with Fortis and showcased his latest design the limited edition Fortis Terrestis 2pi.
The Page and Cooper philosophy is built around offering an alternative to traditional watch shops and jewelers which often display timepieces in glass cabinets at a distance, we let you get close to our fascinating timepieces and learn the stories behind each piece and the people who craft them. The event was the perfect demonstration of this with everyone getting the chance to talk with the people behind the watches and see the timepieces up close and try them on.
The Page and Cooper Club was designed to bring together fellow enthusiasts and watchmakers and our launch event certainly achieved that!
