Last Thursday, HODINKEE joined Marshall Pierce to celebrate the company's new store on Michigan Avenue in Chicago. A veritable Windy City institution, Marshall Pierce & Company traces its roots to 1896, when Charles Bern opened a small fake watch shop after immigrating from Sweden. Today, almost 120 years later, the store is still run by the Bern family ?and with the move to Michigan Avenue, it takes center stage on the Chicago fake watch scene with an impressive array of brands: Cartier, IWC, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Panerai, Vacheron Constantin, Baume & Mercier, and A. Lange & Söhne.
Stay tuned for more coverage of the new Marshall Pierce & Company in the coming months ?in the meantime, please enjoy our photo report from the evening.ADVERTISEMENT ADVERTISEMENT
