California Dreaming

It's been awhile since I blogged. I'm slowly getting used to it and trying to make time to update at least once a week. But as some of my Twitter followers know, I was in California to make some business happen for Perrelet.

Business continues to improve slowly across the country and the west coast is no exception. The stores report increased traffic and increased sales but certainly not at the levels we have seen over the past years.
Monday I was in San Francisco with one of our authorized dealers SHAPUR. He has a great store on Post St. in the heart of downtown. He sells Perrelet and he is doing well with our timepieces.
Then I went to Carmel-by-the-sea to see our new client, LUSSORI. They have a great store in Carmel which is very busy now as visitors go for the cool weather from all over America. They are one of the best watch retailers in the USA and have already begun to sell Perrelet.
They have sold some watches already and they haven taken many orders for the turbine watch available around October..
On to Los Angeles where we visited with some existing clients in Westwood and Beverly Hills. They are very excited to receive the first shipments of the turbine watches and have many clients who are pilots, both commercial and amateur who want to own the turbine based on the design.
Finally went to Vancouver, British Columbia to visit our new agent, Time & Gold. They have had an incredible start with Perrelet and have sold both men's and ladies watches. The owner is Swiss so he has a particular love for Swiss Timepieces. The 2010 winter Olympics are in Vancouver and we are trying to find a way for me to go there during those two weeks to do a group of trunk shows. You can imagine the possibilities at that time. As always, love your support for Perrelet.
