New watch collections for the Joseph Abboud and JOE Joseph Abboud brands are slated to launch this winter. Watches will be available at existing retail partners throughout the U.S. and internationally in 60 countries. 

"Joseph Abboud is one the most established and trusted designer brands in fashion, and we are thrilled to have the brand join the E. Gluck family," says Bobbie Weichselbaum, chief executive officer, E. Gluck Corporation. "We're confident that our company's classic watch design and manufacturing expertise, coupled with WHP Global's management acumen, will enable the Joseph Abboud brand to continue its strong growth and reach its full potential. We look forward to the further expansion of our partnership." 

An assortment of Joseph Abboud and JOE Joseph Abboud's pieces from its new collection will be made available at retail partners including Men's Wearhouse, Jos. A Banks, K&G Stores and Moores. The brand will also expand its retail footprint globally across the travel retail, digital and e-commerce spaces.

"Discovering new ways to grow the Joseph Abboud brand is a priority for us," adds Effy Zinkin, global chief operating officer, WHP. "Our partnership with E. Gluck Corporation, who has been a major force in the watch industry for over 65 years, enables Joseph Abboud to expand to new distribution channels around the world."
