German one-hand watch specialist MeisterSinger has selected its new UK distributor after months of deliberation.
Veritime, which already distributes Ulysse Nardin, H Moser & Cie and Eterna, will now represent MeisterSinger in the UK from June 1.
Veritime’s manager director Neil Duckworth told WatchPro.com: “We start with MeisterSinger on the 1st June, as a distributor, which means holding stock in the UK, providing marketing support at a local UK level as well as UK based after sales.
“We intend to build on the existing distribution of eight independent retail stockists, but recognising the specialist and niche nature of this unique brand we will keep distribution exclusive. That means limiting the number in the UK and Ireland to 50.”
Meistersinger was briefly represented in the UK by Nuval before Jurek Piasecki’s watch distribution company went into administration in February.
John van Steen, MeisterSinger’s director of international sales, sent an email out to the brand’s existing UK retailers earlier this week, stating: “We are convinced that Veritime will bring MeisterSinger to the next level in the UK & Ireland and are looking forward to this co-operation.”
