Just six years ago in 2017, a trio of watch industry veterans formed WatchBox, an online platform for learning about, buying, selling and trading watches. Today, WatchBox merges with brick-and-mortar retail jewelers Govberg, Hyde Park Jewelers and Radcliffe Jewelers and launches The 1916 Company. The new company consisting of these four important retailers brings the “new” watch market together with secondary markets under a single brand name.
Additionally, it becomes a large network based in America and comprising three Hyde Park locations (Denver, Newport Beach, CA, and Scottsdale, AZ), three Radcliffe locations (Baltimore, Towson, Md, Delaware) and two Govberg locations (Philadelphia and Ardmor, PA), along with a dozen Collector’s Lounges and boutiques around the world for a total of 20 physical locations.
The 1916 Company is so named to honor Albert Govberg who founded Govberg Jewelers in Philadelphia in 1916. It is his grandson, Danny Govberg, who not only continued to operate Govberg Jewelers, but also was one of three co-founders of WatchBox (along with Justin Reis and Tay Liam Wee) in 2017.
“In creating The 1916 Company, we embrace our identity as a 107-year-old start-up. The principles of our business are rooted in enduring relationships, while our commitment to innovation and transformative change drives us to anticipate the ever-evolving needs of discerning watch collectors today and tomorrow,” says Govberg.
This blending of one of the largest pre-owned watch platforms and three independent, well-established retailers of watches and jewelry could signify an important change in the watch buying experience. Each of these retailers carries important brands, some including Rolex and Patek Philippe. In fact, The 1916 Company will be announcing separately that it is part of the official network authorized to sell Rolex Certified Pre-Owned watches, with timepieces available for sale as of today at Govberg Watches and Radcliffe Jewelers. They will no longer be available via the Watchbox.com platform.
The merger and launch of The 1916 Company gives customers access to eight multi-brand stores and five mono-brand boutiques across America. The other locations of stores and lounges already existing under the WatchBox wing and coming into the fold include spaces in Switzerland, Hong Kong, Singapore, Shanghai and Dubai, as well as lounges in America (New York, Los Angeles, Miami and Boca Raton, FL). The merger brings The 1916 Company’s inventory to $200+ million in pre-owned collectible watches.
Another of the original three WatchBox co-founders, Justin Reis, is global CEO of The 1916 Company. In a press release issued today, he said “The evolution into The 1916 Company is a natural progression for us, shaped by our clients’ voices and needs. With The 1916 Company, we’re reinforcing the sense of community, rooted in our existing relationships, while eagerly embracing the opportunity to forge new ones. Our vision starts and ends with our customer.”
John Shmerler of Radcliffe and Damon Gross Hyde Park Jewelers will lead The 1916 Company’s authorized retail network. According to Shmerler, “We want collectors and enthusiasts to enjoy visiting us around the world; to feel part of our extended family and Collector’s Circle as they discover The 1916 Company’s uniquely personalized approach to collecting and our extraordinary watch and jewelry collections.”
The 1916 Company plans to roll out the news about the merger and its effects across all of the platforms in the coming six months.

Growing pains are again impacting residents and businesses in Hyde Park.
The London enclave, once a village, has become almost unrecognizable over the past 25 years.
Throughout development, construction has promoted delays, and this week, another closure of Hyde Park Road at South Carriage Road has locals up in arms.
“A road closure that totally occurred with zero notice to either our businesses or our residents,” said Donna Szpakowski, CEO and general manager of the Hyde Park Business Association.
The construction is necessary to permit sewer work for a residential development, so north and south traffic must turn around at roadblocks and follow lengthy detours.
Szpakowski said it is a "nightmare" for Hyde Park’s independent retail businesses.
“They are at the height of their Christmas season. They have brought in extra inventory, they are ready to go. This was completely unexpected,” she said.
Business owner Adrian Plante echoes her comments.
He said the BIA told him about the pending construction in front of his business on Friday, but not city staff. Since Monday, he has been dealing with confused drivers day and night.
“We’ve been having a lot of traffic in our parking lot looking to turn around. And we just worry about our customers' cars getting damaged,” he said.
Yet Plant, who is a developer himself, acknowledged construction is a necessary part of growth. But, he still harkens back to a period when the road out front of his business was two lanes.
“Immensely how things have changed. It’s been non-stop since 2002 when I moved here,” he said.
It raises the question: Is the transformation of Hyde Park nearly complete?
Not yet, Szpakowski told CTV News London. She said 14 new projects are on the books.
As they progress, she said the BIA is working to ensure Hyde Park’s original village character is one day transformed into an area to rival Wortley Village.
“It will be easier once residents vacate for us to turn that into a commercial zoning and create the kind of village we want here in Hyde Park,” she concluded.
The closure and detours on Hyde Park Road are expected to come down as early as the end of this week.

Yesterday, the Metro board approved getting construction underway on a long-anticipated South L.A. multi-use path project and set the groundbreaking for February 28.
The Rail-to-Rail Active Transportation Project - the initial phase (Segment A, above) of a longer bike/walk route that will eventually connect South L.A. to the L.A. River - will convert a currently unused rail right-of-way (ROW) into a 3o'-wide linear park, with landscaping, lighting, benches, new crosswalks, curb ramps, ped/bike crossing signals, and medians at many intersections.
The 6.4-mile segment will extend from the Slauson Avenue Metro A (Blue) Line Station to the Fairview Heights Station (Redondo Boulevard at West Boulevard) at the under-construction Metro Crenshaw/LAX Line. It will also connect to the Metro J (Silver) Line bus rapid transit Slauson Station, and numerous bus lines. The bulk of the multi-jurisdiction facility sits within the city of L.A., but connects with Inglewood and Florence-Firestone (unincorporated L.A. County) on either end.
Originally conceived as an active transportation corridor facilitating transit connections for bike commuters and those on foot, the path also will bring a much needed space for play, recreation, wellness, and mobility to one of L.A.'s more park poor regions. The intersection upgrades should have the added benefit of improving safety for cyclists and pedestrians moving across, not just along, the dangerous corridor.
The project ROW runs along the north side of Slauson Avenue, then cuts diagonally southwest, just below Hyde Park Avenue. These two sections have distinct characteristics.
The eastern portion of the ROW is immediately adjacent to five-plus lanes of the heavily trafficked corridor.
Further west, the ROW is somewhat more confined, running between residential zones and industrial buildings.
Preliminary designs produced in 2016 indicated that along the central segment, a buffer would be created between path users and the steady stream of trucks and cars that rumble through the corridor at all hours.
Because such a buffer won't be needed where the path heads southwest and runs between private properties, there will be more room for separate biking and walking paths. Here, lighting, landscaping, emergency phones, and connectivity with cul-de-sacs are expected to help with both accessibility to the path and a sense of safety.
Where feasible along the corridor, landscaping will help make the path more inviting to all users.
Metro first secured partial project funding via a 2015 federal TIGER grant, for which the Board authorized the allocation of up to $10.8 million in hard-match funds. Metro then also matched funds to the $8.3 million state Active Transportation (ATP) grant it received and cobbled together the rest with L.A. County Measure W, and other county funds - plus some Metro Measure R sales tax funding.
With monies finally in hand, construction had been expected to get underway in 2018, but the costs of the three design/build proposals Metro received far exceeded its original proposed budget.
Metro subsequently changed the project delivery method to design/bid/build in order to minimize the risks associated with having to seek city approvals as well as some of the other factors that drove the bidders’ projected costs so high. That meant that instead of the contractor and design consultant producing the conceptual drawing and approved-for-construction design, Metro completed a design in-house that was fully approved for construction before potential contractors were invited to bid on it.
To make the financing work out, the city of Los Angeles stepped up to contribute $30 million in services along the ROW. As rail right-of-ways generally lack curbs, sidewalks, drainage, etc., the city will be adding these where applicable.
The Metro board also approved the $115 million life-of-project budget [staff report] which lets the agency move forward with a current construction bid in hand.
Though the funds have mostly been lined up, the budget spreadsheet indicates there is still a shortfall of around $58 million. The staff report notes that Supervisor Holly Mitchell is working to contribute $15 million to the project.
Metro has already spent $8 million in contamination clean-up costs. These sorts of clean-up costs are common in these rail/industrial corridors; more could arise.
Metro has plans to host a groundbreaking next month - Monday, February 28. The facility is expected to open around 2025.

Powered by Master Chronometer calibers, these timepieces boast exceptionally high levels of accuracy, functionality and resistance to magnetism.
The Black Bay GMT builds upon the existing Black Bay collection, introducing a highly practical feature: a multiple time-zone function, commonly referred to as a GMT function. Distinguished by its rotating bezel, which carries forward the deep blue and burgundy color scheme from other models within the Black Bay series, albeit in a matte finish, the Black Bay GMT also pays homage to the early iterations of this watchmaking functionality.
The CHRONOMASTER Sport melds features from previous ZENITH chronograph models, like the white tricolor dial, pump-style pushers and gold bracelet, all encased in a contemporary 41mm steel case.

It’s driven by the Elite 670 automatic manufacture movement, ensuring precise timekeeping. Accompanying this timepiece are interchangeable accessories: a steel bracelet and a green patterned rubber strap, providing versatility for different looks.
