Watches for the world: Yarto signs Royal Observatory Greenwich supply and distribution agreement
Britain's historic Royal Observatory Greenwich - home of Greenwich Mean Time [GMT] and the Prime Meridian line - has awarded an exclusive worldwide licence to supply and distribute watches bearing its famous name to Yarto, the company owned by well-known gift industry businessman Michael Grant.
The brand-new range is destined for department stores, jewellery and duty free shops and mail order companies in the UK and overseas. The prestigious watches - set to retail at between £85 and £300 - are expected to be with stockists in spring 2012.
The Meridian timeline will be engraved on the buckle of each timepiece, which will carry on the reverse, 'Officially endorsed by the Royal Observatory Greenwich - Home of Time and GMT', as well as a reference to the Yarto brand, 'By Grant of London'.
The extensive range will include chronographs; classic, dual time and GMT watches, slim and fashion models, as well as limited editions - all made of either titanium or stainless steel and with high quality mechanical and quartz movements.
Michael Grant, a former chairman of The Giftware Association, is now seeking distributors - and stockists - in Britain and around the world. Those interested are invited to meet him on the Yarto stand at Spring Fair international [Hall 5 Stand L01].
