Burberry, the British luxury fashion house, opened its first separate watch counter on the Chinese mainland on Thursday, in Chengdu, capital of Sichuan province.
The counter is located at the Chengdu Xinyu Sanbao watch shop in downtown Chengdu, across the street from Yanlord Landmark Plaza, the site of flagship stores of many international luxury brands, including Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior, Prada, Ermenegildo Zegna and Hugo Boss.
