American Watch Brand Worn by President Obama Now Available Throughout Mexico

Jorg Gray Partners With Distributor Grupo Orologio; Expands Into Mexico

TUSTIN, CA--(Marketwire - October 7, 2010) -  Jorg Gray, an American watch brand designed to change the way we view time, today announced its partnership with distribution company Grupo Orologio and availability at multiple jewelry stores throughout Mexico. The Jorg Gray line, including the new collection, is now available at the country's finest retailers with price points between $3,900.00 MXN and $5,200.00 MXN. 

Best known 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 men's and ladies' watches are meticulously crafted combining detailed forms with materials such as sapphire crystal, Swiss movements, fine Italian leather straps and a variety of stainless steel, rose gold and bronze casings. Consumers can now purchase these distinctive timepieces across the country at leading retailers including Joyeria Benny and Joyeria Alex in Mexico City, and Grupo Joyero San Roman in Merida or Valladolid.

"Our customers come to us seeking the finest timepieces for the greatest value," said Jose Manuel, director of Grupo Joyero San Roman. "As one of the first authorized Jorg Gray retailers in the country, we've found that, like us, consumers are drawn to Jorg Gray because of its unique story and quality product; we're expecting the line to do very well."

Jorg Gray evolved from a specialty private-label company to a worldwide brand after watch aficionados recognized Obama wearing the Jorg Gray 6500 Chronograph, a gift he received for his 46th birthday in 2007. The watch grew in popularity, as the President wore the timepiece at such historic events as his inauguration and the signing of his first presidential proclamation, spurring the company to create a Commemorative Edition 6500 available to the public in early 2009. Since then, the Jorg Gray brand has taken off with men's dress, casual and ladies' lines at retailers worldwide as President Obama continues to be photographed wearing the original 6500. Today Jorg Gray timepieces can be found at fine retailers across the U.S. and throughout Europe, Asia, East Africa, Canada, the Caribbean, Turkey, Mexico and more.

"We've seen a huge international demand for our brand and continue to expand into new markets," said Trevor Gnesin, president of Jorg Gray. "The collection has a watch to fit every style and personality, even a president's, at an unbeatable value and resonates with consumers around the world."
