Swiss luxury watchmaker, Jacob & Co, has landed in Japan, opening its first brick-and-mortar store in the bustling district of Ginza this month. 

The opening ceremonies, scheduled to take place on October 13, will be attended by the brand’s chairman and founder Jacob Arabo. 

Situated between Ginza Station and Shimbashi Station and spanning one floor, the Jacob & Co Ginza store adapts the brand’s signature store design concept in black and white. While the ceiling features LED lighting with Jacob & Co’s geometric lines, a large LED monitor is stalled on the wall to display the brand’s latest campaign. 

The store will be home to Jacob & Co’s full collection of watches, including the brand’s signature ‘Five Time Zone Watch’, which simultaneously displays the time in five different countries. 

The launch is part of its international footprint expansion plan. CEO of Jacob & Co, Benjamin Arabov, earlier this year said the company was planning to double its international footprint in the coming years. 

Founded in 1986 by Jacob Arabo, Jacob & Co has a presence in 31 countries and regions, including South Korea, India, Mainland China, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Singapore.
