COUTURE ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH KAISER TIME, INC.
30+ Years Experience to Lend Itself to the Growth of COUTURE’s Watch Category

New York, NY—In advance of its 2015 event, COUTURE is proud to announce its partnership with Kaiser Time, Inc. Kaiser Time is one of the largest consulting agencies in the watch business, and this important alliance is geared towards assisting COUTURE in the development of its watch category. With over 30+ years of relationships among prestigious watch brands and retailers, Kaiser Time is perfectly positioned to maintain the momentum of COUTURE’s strategic initiatives. The company’s founder, Steven Kaiser, was an owner and executive in the watch industry for over 25 years before launching Kaiser Time 15 years ago, where he’s been drawing on his wealth of connections in order to bring a variety of products and services to the industry.

“When carefully considering potential areas of growth for COUTURE, we came to the conclusion that the luxury watch category is a natural fit with our existing community of designer fine jewelry brands,” explained Gannon Brousseau, Director, COUTURE. “Steven’s experience, expertise and acumen in this category are unsurpassed. We are confident that Steven and his incredibly capable team are going to be instrumental in helping us achieve the very ambitious, yet very precise, goals that we have for the future of our event.”

“We are thrilled to partner with COUTURE,” enthused Kaiser. “Over the past 20 years, COUTURE has evolved into a powerful brand with an incomparable reputation. The luxury watch brands with whom we have relationships are very specific with regard to the alliances they enter into, and we feel strongly that COUTURE is an event and a community that they will be proud to join.”
