St Patrick's Day

Nearly 122 million Americans say they celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.  Most popular way to mark the holiday? By wearing green!  What started as a religious celebration in Ireland to honor the life of their patron saint, now has evolved into rivers, chrysanthemums and libations dyed green, miles of marching parades and countless corned beef and cabbage dinners.

To mark St. Patrick’s Day, we share with you two watchbands to showcase your Irish heritage…

…and a traditional St. Patrick’s Day toast:

May your blessings outnumber

The shamrocks that grow,

And may trouble avoid you

Wherever you go

Happy St. Patrick’s Day from all of us at Graham International!

Wondering how folks show their affection on Cupid’s big day?  According to our friends at Researchmaniacs.com, 70% give a card, 49% phone the object of their affections, 48% give a gift, 37% plan a special dinner, 33% give candy (my particular favorite – especially chocolate of course), 30% have a meal in a restaurant and 19% give flowers.

Here’s an idea:  Encourage your customers to consider a stylish new watchband to make this Valentine’s Day special.

We’ve got delicious, Valentine’s gorgeous wholesale watchbands….

For her, consider a padded and stitched alligator or lizard grained leather strap, or a simple leather strap in a festive or classic color.  Want something a little more polished and shiny? Try a genuine polished alligator in pink, white or cranberry .  For him, a sporty waterproof calf leather strap with red stitching!

Happy, happy Valentine’s Day from all of us at Graham International!

We love this photo by Mbgrigby on Flickr.com, delightfully illustrating one person’s clever way to “save time.”  We’re always looking for ways to save time too, especially now that the holidays are upon us.  National Jeweler  writes that online retail spending is up for the 12th consecutive quarter, confirming that one way many are trying to save time (and money) is by shopping online.

Many of our customers have an online presence, and many others are traditional store-front retailers. But whether online or in-store, customers continue to seek out the best selection, value and service, even for items as simple as a replacement watchband.

Make sure you have a nice assortment on hand for your holiday shoppers…you can even save yourself some time by ordering through our spanking new e-commerce website!  Our warehouse manager Laticia (who knows a thing or two about being efficient and saving time herself) makes sure your orders go out within 48 hours or less.

Just as cleanup was nearing completion from Hurricane Sandy, along came winter storm Athena!  This morning we woke up to about 6 inches of big, fat, wet snowflakes here in Norwalk, Connecticut.

Fortunately we still have power, internet and telephone service this time, and now that we have shoveled out our cars we would love to hear from you!

We are offering a great new gift item this year: BOXY watch winders – get it? Winder Wonderland?  They are a super cool solution for watch collectors who do not wear their automatic or self winding watches every day.  They can be used individually, or with a special adapter plate, can be stacked up to 3 high or with a total of 12 watch winders, all powered by one cord.  You can even group the winders in stylish display cases like the one shown here…

Watch winder display case holds up to 12 winders
