Rising Watch Brand Jorg Gray Breaks Into Eurasian Market

Watch Worn by President Obama Lands at Turkish Retailers

TUSTIN, CA--(Marketwire - October 14, 2010) - Jorg Gray, an American watch brand designed to change the way we view time, today announced its partnership with distribution company Polat A.S. and its official launch at multiple retailers throughout Turkey. The Jorg Gray collection is now available at the country's finest retailers with price points between TL500 and TL3.000 TRY. 

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. Turkish consumers can now purchase these timepieces at the country's most established and respected retailers including Tevfik Aydin Saat San.Tic. A.S., Edip Saat and Konyali Kol.Sti in Istanbul.

"Throughout our history, retailers have come to rely on Polat A.S. to provide a varied and striking selection of timepieces," said Varujan Polat, President of Polat A.S. "By carrying Jorg Gray, we're continuing this tradition, and helping drive sales, by offering a globally recognized collection of stunning watches consumers are sure to appreciate."

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, Mexico and more.

"As we continue to open stores around the world, the focus of our brand and passion stays the same -- creating timepieces that people love not only for design but also for the high level of quality," said Trevor Gnesin, president of Jorg Gray. "The Jorg Gray collection has a watch to fit every style and personality, even a president's, while providing retailers and customers an unbeatable value."
