Watch supplies wholesaler LBS London has opened a new sourcing office in Hong Kong off the back of a record year in sales.
The Hertfordshire-based company, which supplies watch straps, tools and batteries, has also taken on more staff at home to cope with demand following its recent appointment as official distributor of Swiss-based Renata batteries.
Sam Rose, director of LBS, said: “We’ve had a really successful year and we are looking ahead to an extremely busy final quarter which we are very excited about. We’ve had to take on new staff to handle the demand and we are really proud of the growth of the company. Our beginnings were humble but we’ve worked our way up to a really exhilarating place and are enjoying what’s in store for the future.”
The company attributes its sales record to the innovative new watch strap designs it offers, a competitive pricing strategy and a multi-angle marketing plan put in place two years ago. The new Hong Kong office will allow the company to ensure the quality and pricing of the products it offers.
LBS London’s latest catalogue includes a premium range of watch straps including calf skin straps finished with a luxurious Remborde edge.
