The Watch Fair: A Wonderful Time

Monday, October 25th, 2010

The Watch Fair at Abt this weekend was extremely successful.  Hundreds of people came by to search for their perfect time piece and mingle with representatives from high-end manufacturers.  Some of the extremely limited pieces that were brought in were even sold.  “A few of Ball’s beautiful 18karat gold watches were purchased by some thrilled customers”, said Torrice a Watch Store representative.

Other limited pieces on display were Movado’s special line of watches, designed by artist Kenny Scharf.  They are definitely an intriguing, albeit odd design on five specially styled watches. They are so limited only 150 of each was made.

For the full line of our watches and watch accessories, check out our watch homepage.

Abt's Watch Fair 2010

Friday, October 22nd, 2010

The Watch Fair at Abt will be this weekend, Oct 23-24th. Saturday hours are 10 am- 5pm and Sunday hours are 11am-4pm.  At the fair there will be representatives from each watch manufacturer we sell in our Time Boutique.  On Saturday and Sunday, Ball, Swiss Army, Tissot, Longines, Movado and Citizen will be in attendance.  On Sunday there will be a representative from Hamilton watches.  Limited pieces will be brought in by Ball on Saturday and Sunday.

In speaking with Tony B, a watch sales specialist, the top five selling brands we carry are Ball, Movado, Rado, Michele, Tissot.  When it comes to which is most popular, there isn’t a style or model that really outsells each other.  Each watch is unique and compliments our clientele who all have their own unique perspectives on that they like.

We have a watchmaker is available during the day every Wednesday and Saturday for customers who own a watch that needs servicing.  Even if the watch wasn’t purchased at Abt, the watchmaker will still take care of the watch.  On-site repairs include resizing, changing batteries etc. More detailed work, such as replacing crystals, need to be done off-site.

Stop by this weekend and find the right time piece as a gift for the upcoming holidays, or, to just treat yourself.

Watches Available at Abt

Women today have lots of status symbols available to them.  Designer clothes, shoes, bags (like our Tumi selection), hats, sunglasses, bracelets, rings, necklaces, and the list goes on.  For us guys, we have two.  Our cars and our watches.  While Abt doesn’t sell cars (although if you are in the area, come see our souped-up Smart Car with a Focal system) we do sell watches.

Not only does Abt sell watches, but did you know that Abt sells watches ranging from very nice, basic models all the way up to a line that is worn by some members of royalty around the world?  When I say royalty, I mean actual monarchs, like HRH Prince Edward of Wessex and King Mohammed VI of Morocco, and worldwide celebrity royalty, like Michael Jordan and David Beckham, both wear watches by Franck Muller.  You can see a large assortment of these watches right here in our Time Watch Boutique in the atrium.  (An interesting note is that Franck Muller doesn’t pay anyone to wear their time pieces!)

So what if you’re not the biggest of big dogs, a king or world wide soccer phenomenon?  You can look like one with a great new time piece by Franck Muller.  You can also find fine watches by the likes of Ball, Oris, Gucci, Movado, Rado, and many more.  There’s nothing like putting on a nice watch.  Get out there and show ‘em who the big dog is by showing off your brand new watch from Abt today!
