Anne Klein Watches has a lot to celebrate this year, so it seems particularly apt that they are a Gold Partner of the prestigious WatchPro Hot 100 event. The brand’s team (from UK distributor TLKE) will be at the Kensington Roof Gardens party, toasting the success of Anne Klein and the rest of the watch industry, and meeting and greeting their best retailers.
“Supporting the WatchPro Hot 100 event gave us the ideal occasion to celebrate Anne Klein’s success amongst our industry peers,” said Teresa Timberlake, managing director of TLKE. “This gave us the perfect opportunity to bring together all our buyers who helped relaunch Anne Klein into the UK over the past two years. With their continuous support and mutual love of the brand and the watches, they have helped Anne Klein become one of the top fashion watch brands,” continued Timberlake.
Anne Klein has been busy in the last few weeks. After its spring launch with F. Hinds and House of Fraser, it hosted its Spring Market, where Anne Klein watches continue to see impressive sell-through across all retail channels and has gained healthy interest from multiple retailers and department stores.
Timberlake confirms that, not only are they “finalising negotiations for autumn launches with a few big names,” but that “Anne Klein is also signing up for a show with QVC.” She hopes that this will become a regular feature, so she asks the watch trade to “look out for familiar faces on your TV screens.”
As the sponsor of this year’s Retail Titans, Anne Klein and Timberlake are looking forward to rubbing shoulders with the great and good of the UK watch industry tomorrow night. “We all are very much looking forward to tomorrow night and sharing a drink with you all to celebrate the watch industry,” Timberlake concluded.
