Spanish watch brand Marea has signed a deal to supply retail chain F Hinds with its fashion watches.
Marea watches will be stocked at 10 F Hinds stores from spring this year. The locations of those shops are yet to be confirmed.
At present the brand has eight stockists in the UK, equating to about 25 doors, plus two online stockists. UK distributor Cooper Brand Management said it has plans to grow its distribution in the UK to 30 stockists with a target of 300 doors.
Cooper Brand Management owner Damian Cooper said that he will target major chains, specialist watch shops, jewellers and department stores in the UK as potential stockists of the brand.
Copper added: “The sell-through of the brand has been astonishing and we are really looking forward to pushing the brand in the UK in 2013.”
