Gemini expand their travel retail sectors with JES Travel Retail

Belgium based men’s watch and jewelry brand Gemini has begun expanding its travel retail presence in partnership with  JES Travel Retail.  The remit will focus on the sectors that Gemini are not currently active in, namely airports, cruise and ferry, and will use the key GTR trade shows in Miami, Singapore, Argentina and France as  benchmarks within each region.

The Gemini ranges include traditional and chronograph watches (42 millimeter to 44 millimeter), bracelets in Nappa leather, stainless steel, larvikite/leather combinations and bronzite stones and are fully supported with POS material that has options for personal custimsation.

JES Travel Retail owner Tim Jobber commented “Gemini represents a subcategory that we have been investigating prior to COVID as our research was consistently showing that the [men’s] jewelry offering in travel retail was greatly underrepresented. In Gemini we found a brand that offered classic, yet modern, designs coupled with the highest quality of manufacturing. Our client however realize the importance of retailer support and therefore we are pleased to partner with an international organization that invests significantly in superb marketing support.”

Jewelry and watches of the highest quality

For men, boys, fathers and sons.

For entrepreneurs and world travelers, for thinkers and doers.

For fashion-conscious men and gentlemen.

Only top grade A stones fare used for the bracelets with sourcing as far afield as South Africa to Norway.

Production in 3 social enterprise projects in Belgium. Since 2018, we are proud to be officially recognized as a Handmade in Belgium product by the Belgian association UNIZO.

The octagonal double case watches are 100% Belgian design.   Thanks to the water resistance of 10 ATM you can use them anytime and anywhere and the scratch-resistant sapphire glass protects your watches from minor damage.  With a top quality Japanese Miyota movement inside you can rely on this watch for years.

At the top of the range are full titanium chains with forged carbon inlays. It has taken us months to develop this item and we are proud to be one of the only brands in the world to offer this type of Grade 2 titanium in jewelry that is hypoallergenic and feather light.


Hoxton has for a long time, been the creative centre of London. It’s the central link that unifies the infamously colourful Shoreditch, the racy streets of Dalston and the bohemian melting pot of Hackney.

In Hoxton, artists mix seamlessly with fashion designers and entrepreneurs, sharing ideas, setting trends and influencing the way we live our lives.

This is where street art goes from doorways and alleys to the auction house, where platinum albums are recorded in small studios. There’s a buzz in the air which feels as if any minute something totally new and original might happen. Actually, knowing Hoxton… it probably will.

Whether it’s flavoured gin, pink gin or tropical rum (by the way, who’s bananas macerate in spirits for five weeks!), it’s part of a fine tuned recipe designed to be celebrated wherever you are; from the comfort of your living room, amidst the sunrays of your garden, at one of our parties! or in the hazy summer festival fields where all of us really come alive.
