Gevril, creators of innovative timepieces built on a rich horologic tradition that dates back to the 18th century, will display on ShopHQ this coming April 15th at 11pm Eastern (8pm PT), both on TV and streaming online. ShopHQ is known to have a very substantial following of watch enthusiasts and collectors.

The Sunday night ShopHQ show will be hosted by Tim Temple, watch aficionado and TV shopping personality par excellence, and by his guest, Mr. Steven Jay, Gevril’s former Vice President of seven years.

Steven Jay’s excitement in spearheading the ShopHQ launch is palpable as he explains: “For seven years I was very fortunate to have worked alongside Samuel Friedman, Gevril’s owner and source of inspiration. Together, Mr. Friedmann and I retold the marvelous story of how Jacques Gevril began by restoring timepiece in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland and went on to achieve tremendous success, eventually becoming the official watchmaker to King Ferdinand VI of Spain in 1758.

“Gevril today imbues its skilled craftsmen with Jacques Gevril’s watchmaking spirit and creates remarkable collections that are found in watch shops across the world from of New York to Moscow.

“Fine timepieces, by their very nature, capture not just the eye through their beauty or the heart through technical innovation. Rather, such timepieces capture the very soul of the wearer, through the brand’s inherent rich, romantic genealogy that often dates back several hundred years. To be able once again to join forces with a brand like Gevril and share it with the ShopHQ audience is a very special opportunity.”

A well-tuned plan for success and an extraordinary vision for aesthetic and mechanical evolution underlie world’s most notable timepiece success stories. Gevril has evolved its collections over the years, and the brand has remained loyal to its aristocratic lineage, investing the necessary resources to foster a synergy of aesthetic and mechanical evolution.

GV2 watches have been infused with the same rich tradition, high quality materials and craftsmanship that go into Gevril timepieces but provide the added benefits of unequaled value and novel, innovative designs. While Gevril maintains its dedication to classical design, GV2 breaks from tradition to capture the attention of watch devotees looking for statement timepieces possessing unique character and attitude.

I Was Converted to a Watch Collector by Tim Temple and ShopHQ

by Michael Seitz

Tim TempleLate one night about ten years ago, I accidentally stumbled upon a fascinating television program about watches, hosted by Tim Temple on ShopHQ. This shopping program was different from all I had ever before watched on other shopping channels. In particular, this program not only carried out its mission of selling watches to the consumer, it also inculcated viewers with a basic knowledge of horology.

I found myself taking off the watch I was wearing and looking to see if it was constructed out of surgical grade stainless steel, if it had a screw down caseback, or if it was a pop off… And were the markers on the dial hand-applied and raised or simply decals? I purchased two new timepieces for myself and one for my wife, that very night. That ShopHQ show was the first of many Tim Temple shows I came to watch.

Since 1994, Tim has had what he refers to as “several tours of duty” at ShopHQ. Tim enjoys presenting watches, in particular those for which he has a genuine passion. As ShopHQ resident watch expert, he has been instrumental in introducing quite a few of the over 70 watch brands that the shopping channel carries.

While at another network, Tim Temple and Gevril Group’s Samuel Friedmann introduced first generation Gevril automatic timepieces and GV2 watches to television watching consumers.

Following the successful launch of the Haurex watch brand on ShopHQ in September, Tim lets fellow ShopHQ host Daniel Green take the reins of a another Gevril Group watch brand debut with the highly anticipated premier of the über cool POLICE line this Thursday, December 1, at 11pm EST (10pm CST). I’m all set to purchase the POLICE Raptor for my personal collection during the POLICE watch event.

For a decade, I have had the tremendous pleasure of being able to converse with Tim Temple and to deepen my understanding for and love of horology. Tim has taught me to admire the beauty of an automatic watch movement and all the labor that goes into in, while still appreciating the accuracy and precision of a fine quartz movement. Thanks to Tim and the rest of the stellar watch team at ShopHQ, I have a fantastic watch collection, a passion for horology and now, a budding career in the watch industry.

POLICE Watches Make “Arresting” ShopHQ TV Debut December 1

by Bill Shuster  

POLICE WatchesPOLICE watches, the internationally-known, masculine fashion timepieces, make their U.S. TV debut December 1 on ShopHQ, a leading shop-at-home TV channel. The stylishly-unique brand, designed for those secure in their individuality, stars in a one-hour special at 11pm EST (10pm CST), hosted by ShopHQ personality and long-time watch aficionado Daniel James Green. Joining Daniel will be Ralph Kutting, Creative Director at POLICE, who is flying in from Switzerland specifically for this TV and online streaming video event.

POLICE Watches Fall-Winter 2011-2012

The show debuts cool new Fall-Winter 2011-2012 collections, affordably priced from $135 to $450. Among those spotlighted will be collections with gritty, urban sophistication, as well as the Dominator, a bold dual-time watch with large side-by-side dials, one of the most popular POLICE timepieces.


Although well-known in Europe — and a favorite with sports and film celebrities like David Beckham, Antonio Banderas, and George Clooney — the fashion-forward POLICE brand is still somewhat less known in America. The ShopHQ event is part of a major effort by Gevril Group to raise POLICE’s profile in the U.S. market and acquaint consumers with its quality and unique, rugged sophistication.

Be You. Be Younique!
