WRYST – International Jewellery London 2012
Written by: D Constant
We see a new watch brand launched at IJL 2012 being held at Earls Court in London between the 2nd and 5th September 2012. WRYST Timepieces is being brought to us by Jacques Fournier, a Swiss watch designer, who has designed or assisted a number of watchmakers, including creating and developing the entire five timezone G5 collection, Ghost series for Jacob & Co. Jacques has now stuck his neck out (to coin a phrase) and launched his own brand in WRYST, and his first offering is the Airborne Range.
The idea behind the WRYST Airborne Range is to provide the extreme sports person a luxury, stylish timepiece that is also durable and hard-wearing. The Airborne Range is a unisex collection of watches and will be distributed by Since 1853, a UK Watch Distributor, founded by the Carmichael Brothers in 2007.
Since 1853 has a growing range and is Official UK distributor for brands such as Torgoen Swiss, Revue Thommen, Grovana of Switzerland and now WRYST Timepieces.
