Jorg Gray Debuts Collection at Retailer in Bangkok

Watch Brand Opens First of Several In-Store Displays at Thai Retailer

TUSTIN, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 21, 2011) - Jorg Gray, an American watch brand designed to change the way we view time, today announced the opening of its first dedicated in-store display in Bangkok, Thailand. The Jorg Gray display, located at Siam Paragon in Lifestyle Gallery #1, marks the first international store launched by the brand. Jorg Gray will continue to expand in Thailand with four more retailer partnerships in early summer 2011.

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.

"Thai consumers expect impeccable style and value when purchasing a timepiece. This partnership with Jorg Gray has given new meaning to affordability without any of the typical quality sacrifices," said Nathachai Chandrsuda of Best Time Intergroup. "Jorg Gray is pioneering a niche in the timepiece world -- one where watch aficionados and general consumers alike can possess a remarkable timepiece at an accessible price point. The Jorg Gray retail partnership is just another step forward for this rising brand."

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., United Kingdom and throughout Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Canada, the Caribbean, Mexico and more.

"Jorg Gray continues to expand across the globe, but despite our growth we are still dedicated to creating beautifully crafted, fine timepieces that offer a classic style attainable by all," said Jorg Gray president Trevor Gnesin. "The launch of our first dedicated retail display in Bangkok is just the beginning. We look forward to welcoming Jorg Gray stores into countries around the world and continuing to offer our quality line of watches to consumers everywhere."
