The Great Hall in Winchester provided the perfect Tudor setting for an evening to celebrate the new luxury TUDOR watches, unveiled at Baselworld 2019.
The event transported our TUDOR watch enthusiasts back to the Tudor period, where they were entertained by two comical court jesters and authentic historical music. The tranquil music and laughs from the crowd as the jesters performed tricks, really brought a fantastic atmosphere to the Great Hall for this event.
A modern indulgence however, was the flowing of crisp bubbly from the Danebury Vinyard and the delicious canapes from The Little Kitchen Company. With their tremendous help, our guests could really relax and enjoy the evening.
To further enhance the occasion, the lovely Alex gave a fantastic speech on the history of the prestigious Great Hall. She talked enthusiastically about the Kings of England and Oliver Cromwell, as well as how the legendary King Arthur's Round Table acquired it's Tudor colours.
Our brand Ambassador Franny Benali also took a moment to speak at the event, thanking everyone who supported his tremendous #IronFran challenge that he recently completed to raise money for Cancer Research UK. Our Managing Director Edward Ferris also spoke to thank everyone who attended the event and to talk more about about all things TUDOR!
The star of the show, was of course the TUDOR Baselworld 2019 Watch Collection, with key pieces such as the Black Bay Bronze and the Glamour Double Date causing much excitement. Our guests were able to view the full collection and talk with our wonderful team of experts from our Winchester Burrells store, who were most excited to share this collection at the event.
Not only were the new watches a hit with our guests, but some of the pieces from the TUDOR Baselworld 2018 Collection were still attracting a lot of attention. Special mention must go to the TUDOR Black Bay GMT which was one of the most popular watches at the event!
Once again we would like to thank everyone who was a part of helping us at Burrells put on this amazing evening!
