TOKYO--(Marketwire - July 14, 2010) - Melrose Jewelers: Melrose Jewelers, USA's #1 Online Rolex Watch Retailer, today announced that it has become the #1 Online Rolex Retailer in Japan including Tokyo, Yokohama, Osaka, Nagoya, Sapporo, Kyoto, Kobe, Fukuoka, Kawasaki, and Hiroshima. In Q1 and Q2 2010 Melrose Jewelers' revenue from Japan jumped over 75% over the same period last year.

Vanessa Puzio of Melrose Jewelers states, "Japanese businessmen have been some of our most loyal, recurring customers. The Japanese have an affinity for luxury watches much like Americans but with a more meticulous eye for the higher-end. They are also very internet-savvy and more risk-averse when it comes to purchasing from a recently formed startup rather than from a larger online retailer such as Melrose Jewelers. We've found that our Japanese customers are also almost 3 times as inclined to purchase from us again as an American customer."

Several of the Rolex watch models customized for the Middle Eastern market including Tokyo, Yokohama, Osaka, Nagoya, Sapporo, Kyoto, Kobe, Fukuoka, Kawasaki, and Hiroshima include: (simply visit MelroseJewelers.com and enter the 3-digit code in the search box)
