Jorg Gray Watches Now Available at Retailers Across the UK and Ireland

Company Expands Internationally and Appoints Industry Veteran as Director of UK Sales

TUSTIN, CA--(Marketwire - December 2, 2009) - Jorg Gray, an American watch brand designed to change the way we view time, today announced its official retail launch in the United Kingdom headed by industry veteran, Tony Sulkey. Following high demand, the brand will offer its 23 collections at more than ten fine jewellery retailers throughout the U.K. and Ireland with price points between £185 and £325.

As the brand worn by President Barack Obama, Jorg Gray has drawn international attention for its remarkable design, high quality and affordable collection of timepieces. The watches are meticulously crafted with scratch resistant mineral crystal, fine Italian leather straps and a variety of stainless steel, rose gold and bronze casings.

Tony Sulkey joins the company as Director of U.K. Sales with more than 16 years of sales and marketing experience in the watch and jewellery industry. He is responsible for all sales aspects in the U.K. including leading a sales team spanning across England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. With a stronghold in the U.S. watch market and a dedicated U.K. team, the brand is poised to grow its U.K. presence in 2010 with the Jorg Gray line in several high-profile retail chains, and Harrods and Selfridges Department Stores lined up for distribution in the first quarter.

"We've seen a huge demand around the world for Jorg Gray timepieces, particularly from the United Kingdom, and are proud to now offer the line directly," said Trevor Gnesin, president of Jorg Gray. "With a combination of key retail partners in the U.K. and Tony's expertise, we're expecting an outstanding future for the brand next year and beyond."

Jorg Gray evolved from a specialty private-label company to a worldwide brand after President Obama received the Jorg Gray 6500 Chronograph for his 46th birthday in 2007. The watch grew in popularity, as the President wore the timepiece at such historic events as his inauguration, the signing of his first presidential proclamation and the G-20 Summit, spurring Jorg Gray to create a Commemorative Edition 6500 available to the public. Committed to combining bold design with traditional precision and attention to detail, the company launched its full line of watches at JCK Las Vegas in June 2009.

"The unique story behind Jorg Gray appeals to both consumers and retailers, with quality and price also being a big draw," said Colin Scamp, owner of Peter Stephan Jewellers. "Each week for the past several months we've had customers inquire about the watch Obama wears. We look forward to being one of the first retailers in the country to carry the line and expect it to do very well."

Other retailers include Jura Watches in London, Cunningham Jewelers in Lancaster, Carl Christopher Jewellers in St Helens and Glossop and Weirs Jewelers in Dublin.
