5th Annual Swiss Watch by JCK Brings Together the Best of the Watch Industry

Chopard, Harry Winston, Hublot and Maurice Lacroix Join This Prestigious Event

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 26, 2007 -- The industry's elite retailers will once again have the opportunity to schedule appointments to view the latest Swiss Watch collections during the 5th Annual Swiss Watch by JCK being held at the beautiful and upscale Venetian Resort Hotel Casino from Friday, June 1 through Tuesday, June 5. This event, produced by JCK Events in conjunction with Kaiser Time, offers jewelry retailers a convenient location to schedule appointments with the top brands including Baume & Mercier, Bulgari, Christian Dior, Chopard, Corum, Dunhill, Ebel, Gucci, Harry Winston, Hermes, Hublot, IWC, Maurice Lacroix, Mont Blanc, Piaget, Swatch Group USA, Tag Heuer, Ulysse Nardin and Zenith in a private and exclusive setting.

"Swiss Watch by JCK offers Baume and Mercier the opportunity to present to our retailers the very latest introductions in a luxurious and personal environment. Most importantly, the Venetian offers a very convenient location that allows our retailers the very important ability to maximize their time away from their stores," said Rudy Chavez, President of Baume & Mercier.

Retailers from around the world arrange appointments including executives from Ben Bridge Jeweler Inc.; London Jewelers/Udell Jewelers, Inc.; Lux Bond & Green Inc.; and Tourneau, Inc. Here is what some of them had to say about the 2006 event.

"Swiss Watch by JCK is a great event, because it's convenient and accommodating and everything is done under one roof. The most important part is the convenience for the retailers. We don't have to leave the premise, the coordination of where the vendors are, is all very effective and communicated properly. Our time is very crucial, and the fact that everything is properly organized is perfect for the retailers," said Aida Alvarez, Senior Vice President of Merchandising, Birks & Mayors Jewelers.

"I strictly carry watches and many of the top brands participate in Swiss Watch by JCK, so for getting work done with high energy this event works exceptionally well for me. I am a Basel and Geneva veteran and I find this is a very easy event for me to work. Virtually every brand I see is now located in a luxury suite at the Venetian Hotel and I found myself moving between two floors in one hotel, so it's very convenient. Schedules are brutal and anything that makes time between appointments less difficult and helps to alleviate any issues in regard to proximity of vendors is phenomenal," said Paul White, Director, Watch Division, Reis Nichols, Indianapolis, IN.

Swiss Watch by JCK is complimented by the convenience of having LUXURY by JCK and The JCK Show - Las Vegas all in one location. To find out more information about Swiss Watch by JCK 2007, contact Diane James of Kaiser Time at 646-473-1640 or email at, or visit
