Watch winders and accessories specialist WOLF is sponsoring the Multiple Luxury Watch Retailer of the Year category at the 2017 WatchPro Awards.
The company says the Awards are a vital event for the British watch industry, which is now viewed as one of the most important in the world for luxury watches.
“Through April of 2017 the Swiss Watch Industry Federation ranks UK 5th in exports. For a country our size that is an amazing feat and as such we should have an awards ceremony to celebrate a great industry in a great country,” says Simon Wolf, chief executive of the company.
“There are not enough of these events, where business and product ideas can be shared in an informal setting. There is nothing like having a laugh with a glass of wine in one hand with folks from the industry you love. It’s a great privilege to be sponsoring the WatchPro Awards so we are very, very excited,” he adds.
WOLF has been expanding rapidly in the UK over recent years by providing the perfect complementary products for luxury watch retailers to sell. “WOLF’s collection of watch winders and boxes are a perfect match to any retailer as we don’t compete with any of the major brands and are a perfect add-on sale that’s actually a necessary part of the consumer experience,” Mr Wolf says.
The 2017 WatchPro Awards take place on November 22 at London’s most prestigious Victorian Ballroom, 8 Northumberland.
They will honour the UK’s best watch retail businesses in categories ranging from independent luxury boutiques to online stores; as well as celebrating the leading teams among the country’s best watch brands and wholesalers.
“This is an event created to celebrate the extraordinary success of the British watch industry, and the people that have contributed to making this one of the world’s most professional and sophisticated markets,” says Rob Corder, managing editor of WatchPro.
