The milestone maritime opening will take place on 17 July.

Expora Journeys, the luxury lifestyle brand of the MSC Group, is poised to open the first-ever Rolex boutique onboard a ship.

The store will open onboard Explora I on 17 July. The vessel offers 461 oceanfront suites, penthouses and residences, designed to be ‘homes at sea’ for its guests.

A landmark luxury partnership

The new Rolex at sea mono-brand store aims to offer travellers an unparalleled shopping experience, according to the group. It will incorporate an elegant design aesthetic that showcases an extensive range of models and styles.

The store will be staffed by experienced hosts trained by Rolex who will deliver a curated shopping experience for travellers, while managing the allocation of watches per suite.
