Precision timepieces of the watch manufactory Hanhart 1882 GmbH from the Black Forest are also available in Japan now. In July 2017, Hanhart and LINK UP Inc. signed a distribution agreement.
After focusing on the home markets in Germany, Switzerland and Austria, Hanhart has increasingly worked on the international expansion of its business. In recent years, Hanhart products have been successfully introduced into English-speaking markets such as the UK, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. With the expansion to Japan, the first partner in the Asian region has been obtained.
Link Up Inc. was founded in Kyoto in 1999 and specialises in the three core businesses of e-commerce, sales of exclusive watches and product management/wholesale.
“Japan is a very interesting market with a great potential for German watch brands. We are pleased to build the brand together with a competent partner also in Japan”, CEO Simon Hall commented on the new cooperation.
