The 1916 Company Launches: A New Era for Watch Enthusiasts

“The 1916 Company is now one of the world’s foremost luxury watch and jewelry retailers, connecting the strengths and legacies of the largest pre-owned platform with three independent jewelers.”

The 1916 Company launched on 1 Nov 2023 by merging WatchBox, Govberg, Radcliffe, and Hyde Park Jewelers under a new brand to form the leading global destination and community for fine watches, jewelry, education, and experiences.

The 1916 Company brings together the primary and secondary markets under a single, unified brand, comprising more than 20 boutiques and Collector’s Lounges in key watch markets worldwide.

CMIA Capital Partners first invested in WatchBox in 2017 and has been the single largest shareholder in WatchBox.

Post restructuring, CMIA Capital Partners is now the single largest shareholder in The 1916 Company.
