Gevril Group Teams Up With Local Sports Complex

Valley Cottage Little League Braves

Gevril Group announced today that it is now an official sponsor of the Herb Reisman Sports Complex. The complex, located in the Town of Ramapo in Rockland County — close to Gevril Group head office in Valley Cottage — is home to several amateur sports leagues and teams.

Samuel Friedmann, owner and president of Gevril Group, is an advocate of strong partnerships and believes collaboration is a key success factor in both business and community development. By supporting youth and youth programs in the Rockland County area, Gevril Group is helping to build and sustain the vibrant community in which it is based. In 2013, Friedmann was presented with a Certificate of Achievement from Rockland County in appreciation of his service rendered to the county.

“Community matters,” says Friedmann. “It is our sincere belief that one of the best ways to ensure Rockland County thrives is to give back. We are fortunate to live and work in an area rich in parklands, and it is important that these public spaces be maintained for youth activity now, and in the future. We want to ensure that teams like the Valley Cottage Braves and other little leaguers have a place to exercise, play and compete.”

The Herb Reisman Sports Complex provides youth and adults with a huge play surface spanning multiple sports. The complex includes a recreation center, two baseball diamonds, tennis courts, basketball courts, sand volleyball courts, a walking path and an all-purpose football and soccer field. The sports complex is adjacent to the Eugene Levy Memorial Park, which has additional facilities.

Two Gevril Group banners are prominently displayed in one of the baseball diamond outfields. The first is a promotion for Haurex, an Italian brand that produces trendy and affordable sport watches like the Turbina II pictured on the banner. The second banner shows one of Gevril’s signature models, the Avenue of Americas Glamour.

Gevril Group Watch Repair Marks 15 Years of Service

Expert Watchmaker at Work

Gevril Group Authorized Watch Repair and Service Center

As Gevril Group marks the 15th anniversary of its authorized watch repair and service center, the company is reminding customers — and watch owners everywhere — about the benefits of using its authorized repair shop to service all types and brands of mechanical and quartz watches.

“When you own a fine watch, such as a Fortis from the B-42 series, servicing the movement at regular intervals is the best way to ensure that it lasts a lifetime,” says Gevril Group owner and president, Samuel Friedmann. “A Gevril Group watchmaker will clean, regulate and polish the watch, and return it looking and functioning as if it were almost new to ensure that it provides many more years of reliable service to its owner.”

Why Gevril Group Watch Repair?

Gevril Group’s talented team of watchmakers has more than 70 years of combined experience and handles every type of major or minor repair and service, from watch battery, watch band and crystal replacements to complex electronic and mechanical movement repairs, dial refinishing and even custom alterations. The Gevril Group repair center uses genuine OEM parts as supplied by manufacturers, and any work it completes is guaranteed for a full year.

“Fine workmanship and expeditious service are chief concerns to our customers,” says Friedmann. “We want to spare people from having to part with their watches for several weeks while the watches travel to and from Europe for service. Our repair center operates here in the U.S., so turnaround times on most services are much shorter.”

The Official Advantage

In addition to quicker turnaround, servicing watches within the U.S. avoids the dangers and costs associated with international shipping, and customers receive as good -– or better -– service than they would if their watches were sent overseas.

Another important consideration for watch owners is warranty validation. Allowing an unsanctioned watchmaker to work on a watch that is under warranty often voids the balance of the watch’s warranty.

Gevril Group is the official repair center for quite a few of brands, providing authorized watch repair and service for Gevril, GV2, Fortis, Ferragamo, Versace, Versus, Haurex, Rüdiger, Johan Eric, Calibre, Louis Erard, Catorex, JOWISSA, Gattinoni, Just Cavalli, Viceroy, Hush Puppies and Giulio Romano among other brands.

“In the end it’s about customer satisfaction,” Friedmann adds. “The quality of the work performed in our service center is simply top-notch. After 15 successful years, we are confident that we will continue to meet the growing demand for watch maintenance and repair for many years to come.”

Welcome to the Gevril Outlet


by John Sealander  

If you keep your watches in a glass case, this message will not interest you. But if you actually wear the watches you buy, you’re going to want to visit the Gevril Outlet immediately.

What’s the first thing that happens when you buy a new watch? It’s almost inevitable that you scratch it. Most of these tiny scratches are inconsequential and they don’t detract in the least from wearing the timepieces we love. Truthfully, just about the only way you can avoid these small blemishes is to put the watch in a drawer and never wear it.

What if you could buy a brand new watch at a very steep discount just because it already had a tiny cosmetic imperfection? You can at the Gevril Outlet Store! The Gevril Outlet sells brand new, unused luxury watches that are guaranteed to be in 100% perfect working order, shipped in the original box with full documentation and the manufacturers full warranty*. The only differences between these fine timepieces and other watches that Gevril sells are a few almost invisible imperfections.

Some of the Watches on Sale at the Gevril Outlet

The watches pictured here and more than one hundred others are available online at the Gevril Outlet at the time of this writing.

Gevril Group has always been extremely meticulous about the watches that leave our warehouse. If these fine timepieces aren’t 100% perfect, we send them to our Gevril Outlet and pass the savings on to you. The tiny scuffs or nicks which occasionally occur during shipping, or while the watch is on display in our showrooms are identical to the blemishes your watch will inevitably receive when you start wearing it. Why go through the stress of wondering when you are going to get the first scratch on your new watch, when you could be enjoying wearing it at a huge discount instead?

New Brand Name Watches Deeply Discounted

Every timepiece available for purchase at the Gevril Outlet is a brand new watch. These luxury watches have never been worn and are fully guaranteed to be in 100% working order. Each watch is shipped in the original packaging with complete documentation and a full manufacturer’s warranty*. Any imperfections are clearly detailed on the Gevril Outlet website, so there will be no surprises.

Savvy shoppers have already discovered that buying a watch at the Gevril Outlet is a win/win proposition. They have a unique opportunity to obtain their favorite timepieces at a significant discount, while eliminating the stress of wondering when they’re going to get that inevitable first scratch. If you want a blemish free watch, you’re going to have to keep it in a glass case. In the real world, watches get scratched and cars get dinged in shopping center parking lots. To start enjoying the next watch you wear, just go to the Gevril Outlet at http://stores.ebay.com/gevril-outlet and start shopping today.

Couture 2013 Las Vegas – Showcasing the Worlds Best Luxury Brands

If Your Business is Luxury, You Always Make Time For Couture

Perfectly timed to coincide with Las Vegas Jewelry Week, Couture is just around the corner. From May 30 until June 3, the world’s leading jewelry and timepiece designers, retailers, and manufacturers will gather at the exclusive Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas for Couture. For over 16 years, the Couture show has been the destination of choice for the stars of the luxury goods industry. With every passing year, this prestigious event continues to gain steam within the luxury community and is now considered the preeminent place to showcase jewelry and watches.

According to Gevril President Samuel Friedmann, “the Couture show has become the place where established brands, rising stars, powerful retailers and luxury trend setters discover what is going to excite customers and drive sales during the year ahead.”

Wynn Las Vegas

Wynn Las Vegas Exclusivity

Friedmann says that participation in the influential Couture show is absolutely essential for Gevril Group. In 2012, Gevril showcased virtually all of the 40 fine timepiece brands it represents, in the Wynn Hotel’s spectacular Chambertin 2 Ballroom. During the five-day event, the show generated much more traffic and interest than the company initially anticipated. “We had success with every price point. Even drop-ins led to serious discussions,” said Friedmann.

This year, Gevril Group will once again be showcasing many of their prestigious brands at the Couture Time exhibit; including world renowned names such as Fortis, Gevril, Versace, Ferragamo and Versus. Joining Gevril at Couture are industry leaders like Stefan Hafner, Chopard, Bell & Ross, Bvlgari, Perrelet, David Yurman and many others. The prestigious Watch Journal will be returning as co-host of Couture Time in 2013. Watch Journal is the first luxury magazine built around watches and is widely regarded as a leading voice within the industry.

With new brands and exciting faces in attendance, the 2013 Couture show promises to be the best ever. Paul Ziff, President of Ferragamo Timepieces for the US and Caribbean, is looking forward to this year’s event. “We are very pleased to be participating in the 2013 Couture show” said Ziff. “Couture is the perfect venue for leading retailers to meet with executives from the industry’s top brands in a relaxed and luxurious environment. It is in this setting that new relationships are forged and existing partnerships strengthened.”

Kari Allen, President of Versace Timepieces for the US and Caribbean, agrees. “I am excited to share the new 2013 Versace and Versus Versace Watch Collections at the Couture show this year” said Allen. “We have gotten fantastic responses from all the top retailers making appointments for this year’s show. The Couture Show at the Wynn Las Vegas is where everyone comes to see all the top luxury watch and jewelry brands in one elegant setting.”

The Couture show proves once and for all that what goes on in Vegas doesn’t necessarily have to stay there. From May 30 until June 3, Gevril Group will give the world’s premier luxury retailers a unique opportunity to see, touch, and just say “wow” to one of the most diverse collections of fine timepieces available today.

Gevril Group will be at Couture from start to finish in the Chambertin 2 Ballroom. You can reach Gevril Group by email or by calling 1-866-425-9882. During the event, call Ruth Dombroff at 914-689-4360.
