If you’re looking for a unique, high-end gift that is both cool and innovative, consider a global (six time zone) watch from IceLink, a Swiss-based luxury watch company that just opened its flagship boutique in the Melrose shopping district. IceLink is recognized throughout the world as a leading high-end watch retailer and for its distinctive, contemporary designs of watches, jewelry and accessories.

The first floor showcases a selection of pieces in an interactive, live environment, incorporating live models behind two large-scale shop windows. The second level is an outdoor covered patio with panoramic views of Melrose Avenue and beyond. It provides a comfortable area to entertain fashion insiders with a wet bar and lounge area.
