Scorpio Distributors returns to TFWA World Exhibition (stand Mediterranean Village P8) with exciting new brand additions to its incredibly strong watch portfolio.

Brand new is a collection of Sturmanskie watches, developed specifically for Scorpio,  which includes a replica of the first watch worn in space by cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin in 1961. Back in the 1960s Sturmanskie watches were the standard issue for Soviet pilots and were not available to the public – they were chosen because of their military precision, workmanship and reliability. Scorpio is now bringing this amazing brand to travel retail with an exclusive collection of men’s retro watches, sympathetically designed to replicate the originals and- in particular – the Gagarin model. 

Also new are an exclusive collection of Hot Diamonds watches, introduced following the incredible success of the jewellery range, and a special inflight range from renowned British designer Vivienne Westwood. Exclusive to travel retail from Scorpio, this latter collection includes three ladies and two men’s models featuring stainless steel or gold plated case; black, cream or pink dials for women; black or brown dials for men; and black, cream of pink leather straps for women; silver or black leather straps for men. Travel retail prices will be in the region of $265.

Scorpio is also introducing watches under the Levi’s brand name. This globally renowned original and authentic jeans brand – now has a cool and stylish range of watches, designed to reflect the brand values of innovation, renewal and reinvention, while retaining the heritage roots. There are five different collections available including the LTG08 Standard with symbolic Levi’s colour stitching, red luminous hands and 3D printing on black or white dial; LTHO5 Core – a simple design in white, black or purple enhanced with Swarovski crystals; and LTH07 Standard – winner of the Red dot product design award – a touch screen LED watch where the wearer slides his/her finger across the screen to check the time/date.
