THE BEST OF 2018
31st December 2018
As 2018 draws to a close and we look forward to all of the promise and excitement that 2019 holds, we’re shining a light on an incredible year of diamonds and thrills.
It’s been an action packed year here at ROX as we celebrated milestone moments with truly unforgettable events – kicking off in style at the Alan Shearer Foundation Ball in Newcastle. Then it was onto the launch of our SS18 magazines with a springtime soiree for press and influencers to enjoy the Thrill Room experience in our Argyll Arcade boutique as well as a special Tudor showcase in Newcastle to offer guests to see the latest from the brand and enjoy a special Q&A with rugby star Mark Robertson.
Our flagship boutique also got in on the sporting action as we hosted our very own World Cup Table Football Tournament with official timekeeper Hublot. We transformed the iconic Argyll Arcade into a football pitch to kick off the FIFA World Cup Russia 2018 and invited guests to battle it out over 80 games of table football, under the watchful eye of compare and Sky Sports pundit Geoff Shreeves, to be in with a chance of winning a once in a lifetime prize.
Golf fans weren’t left disappointed either as we took aim at Archerfield Links for the Hublot Golf Cup, with friend of the brand and PGA player Alexander Levy offering pro tips to invited guests.
Fast forward to August and our Edinburgh boutique set the stage once again for our annual Fringe extravaganza. The best comedians of the internationally renowned festival took to the Thrill Room stage in a night of comedy, cocktails and diamonds
And we once again made the journey to the Braemar Royal Highland Gathering with Hublot for a reel highland fling.
We ended the year on a happy note marking a milestone moment with Chopard – celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Happy Sport collection. Special guests were invited to enjoy a sumptuous meal and an evening of music and entertainment from Scots songstress Nina Nesbitt. Television presenter Susie McCormack-Bruce also spoke with Chopard UK sales manager Charlotte Rhodes-James to offer an insight into the world of the historic brand.
Of course, none of these incredible events would be able to take place if not for your continued support. We’d like to wish you all the very best for 2019 and look forward to seeing you soon.
