Govberg Jewelers to host 'Watch Fair 2008'

Philadelphia based Govberg Jewelers will be hosting its 2008 Watch Fair October 24th - 26th at its Center City location inside of Boyds department store (1818 Chestnut Street).

The unprecedented event will showcase 17 brands including: A. Lange & Sohne, Audemars Piguet, Bell & Ross, Blancpain, Breitling, Chopard, Concord, Franck Muller, Girard-Perregaux, Glashutte Original, Harry Winston, IWC, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Parmigiani, Piaget, Ulysse Nardin, and Vacheron Constantin.

Govberg Jewelers president and owner, Danny Govberg, is hosting such an extravagant event as a celebration of the watch industry.

"For years, other countries have been showcasing a large number of brands at fairs. Switzerland has international fairs in both Basel and Geneva and I felt that it was important for the U.S. to have its own," Govberg says.

Govberg Jewelers is the first retail store to have a watch fair of this magnitude in the United States. Not only will the jeweler be hosting such a large amount of watch brands, but the U.S.

Brand presidents will also be in attendance. This will be the first time ever that this group of Brand presidents will be together under one roof for a retail event.

Also each Brand who is participating in the Watch Fair will be showcasing exceptional product, either the No. 1 watch of a limited series or a unique brand piece, something that has never been executed for a retail store event.

In addition to inviting the Brands to showcase their product, Govberg will be offering horological seminars, led by industry experts.

The jeweler will also be hosting intimate Brand dinners at a selection of fine restaurants throughout the Philadelphia area.

These dinners will consist of a small group of collectors and watch enthusiasts who will have the unique chance to sit down with the Brand presidents, who will be the guests of honor at each individual dinner.

An after party is scheduled at G, Philadelphia's only ultra lounge, which will be sponsored by luxury vendors TBD.
