Gassan opens first Rolex boutique in Amsterdam
Amsterdam, 23 October 2014 – Yesterday evening in the old city centre of Amsterdam the first Rolex boutique was officially opened by Richard Krajicek, Daphne Deckers and David Bijlsma, COO of Gassan. The historical diamond-cutting factory was the scene of this spectacular opening ceremony.
The Rolex boutique is situated on the ground floor of Gassan Diamonds. As one of the market leaders in the Netherlands in the area of Haute Joaillerie and Haute Horlogerie, Gassan has built up a solid relationship with Rolex over the years. Since the beginning of the 1970s, Gassan has marketed the well-known Swiss watch brand at Schiphol Airport, and in 2006 Gassan opened the doors of the first Rolex boutique owned by a retailer other than Rolex itself, at an airport outside of Switzerland.

The opening of the new Rolex boutique will contribute to the public’s knowledge and appreciation of the highly-regarded Swiss watch brand here in the capital of the Netherlands. The fact that Gassan’s historical site was chosen for the opening of this new sales location for Rolex emphasizes the mutual passions of both brands: precision, reliability, performance, and the highest quality in service.
