Guests of This Exclusive Event Enjoyed Light Bites from Award-Winning Houston Restaurant Amalfi, While Browsing The Launch of William Henry and Mingling with CEO and Watchmatcher of Mühle Glashütte
Houston, TX, October, 2019 – I W Marks owners Brad and Joanna Marks hosted new and long-time customers alike for a rare joint party with William Henry and Mühle Glashütte on Tuesday, October 22nd. Hosted at their recently-remodeled Bellaire store, attendees met with Thilo Mühle, CEO and Watchmaker of Mühle Glashütte, and were given a first look at the launch of William Henry, a brand of luxury pocket knives. The event was catered with drinks and light bites by Amalfi.
During the evening, attendees met with Mühle, and had the opportunity to view their latest collection of luxury timepieces. Mühle started with his family’s business as a developer and was quickly promoted to Managing Director. Founded in 1869 by Robert Mühle, Mühle Glashutte has stayed with the family through generations. The family’s long-time expertise allows them to craft award-winning pieces and high-end
timepieces they are known for today. Known for their commitment to fine craftsmanship and design, along with reliability and precision, every Mühle Glashutte German timepiece is curated by only one single watchmaker, guaranteeing perfection. Their team also tests each watch at all six positions on a person’s wrist, ensuring the accuracy that customers have come to expect from a Mühle Glashutte watch.
Guests were also delighted by the launch of William Henry, a brand famous for luxury pocket knives. Through their use of classic natural materials, precious metals, gemstones, and state-of-the-art alloys, William Henry offers customers a wide-range of top-quality men’s accessories. Event attendees were also shown exclusive William Henry pieces that aren’t typically offered to the public.
While guests mingled, enjoyed Amalfi’s light bites and browsed both jewelry collections, they were entered into a giveaway to win a piece from both designers: A William Henry Men’s Handcrafted Bracelet and Limited Edition Terrasport Flieger Watch from Mühle Glashutte. About the event, owner Brad Marks said, “We love hosting jewelry parties for our guests. It gives them the unique, relaxed, low-pressure shopping experience they can’t get anywhere else. Plus, any time we can fly in the designers themselves, so our guests can meet them face-to-face, they really appreciate it.”
