Polo Luxury and Rolex have announced the opening of a new space in Lagos. Located on Alfred Rewane Road, the point of sale is in the heart of Ikoyi – the leafy green, exclusive haven for discerning members of Lagos society.
It is situated on the ground floor of the high-end Sky Tower development that has recently been completed. The new point of sale offers professional expertise in an elegant setting, one that promotes a sense of harmony, discretion, and intimacy with the brand.
“Having represented Rolex in Nigeria for many years, we are very proud to be expanding the Rolex presence in the country, upholding the highest standards of quality and service that are integral to both the brand and to our own business,” said John Obayuwana, Managing Director of Polo Luxury.
“The new space showcases the timelessness and precision of Rolex watches.”
One Space, A whole Rolex World
Every element of the interior design features the elegant Rolex aesthetic and radiates the values of the Rolex crown. Excellence, precision, and attention to detail emanate from the careful calibration of colours and patterns in the fittings and furnishings. Sensitive lighting accentuates the beauty of a selection of Rolex watches, which are displayed in refined showcases lined with beige leather and finished with bronze trims.
A striking emerald aqua wall highlights Rolex’s rich heritage – its wave motif referencing the iconic Oyster, the world’s first waterproof wristwatch. This intense green is referred around the space, creating accents that harmonize a refreshed colour palette. The walls mix textures from walnut brown wood to beige-coloured stone and hand-crafted stucco panels in a pattern that recalls the fluted bezel of the Oyster watch.

About Rolex an Unrivalled reputation for Quality and Expertise
Rolex is an integrated and independent Swiss watch manufacturer. Headquartered in Geneva, the brand is recognized the world over for its expertise and the quality of its products – symbols of excellence, elegance and prestige. The movements of its Oyster Perpetual and Cellini watches are certified by COSC, then tested in-house for their precision, performance and reliability.
The Superlative Chronometer certification, symbolized by the green seal, confirms that each watch has successfully undergone tests conducted by Rolex in its own laboratories according to its own criteria. These are periodically validated by an independent external organization.
The word “Perpetual” is inscribed on every Rolex Oyster watch. But more than just a word on a dial, it is a philosophy that embodies the company’s vision and values. Hans Wilsdorf, the founder of the company, installed a notion of perpetual excellence that would drive the company forward. This led Rolex to pioneer the development of the wristwatch and numerous major watchmaking innovations, such as the Oyster, the first waterproof wristwatch, launched in 1926, and the Perpetual rotor self-winding mechanism, invented in 1931.
In the course of its history, Rolex has registered over 500 patents. At its four sites in Switzerland, the brand designs develop and produces the majority of its watch components, from the casting of the gold alloys to the machining, crafting, assembly and finishing of the movement, case, dial and bracelet.
Furthermore, the brand is actively involved in supporting the arts and culture, sport and exploration, as well as those who are devising solutions to preserve the planet.
