Time for round two of our interviews with Mark Kim, Owner operator of orientwatchusa.com. Again, we feel privileged having the chance to get to personally talk with Mark and we want to share that with all of you Orient fans out there.
Would you believe that his favorite actor is Arnold Schwarzenegger? One of the famous action stars of our time. And when he’s not working out to Arnie’s 1980′s workout videos, Mark likes to race his motorcycle or play golf. Mark is a well-rounded man.
We also asked Mark what some of his innovations at Orient are:
“We went direct online. In the past, Orient has tried to sell through stores without success because of the lack of watch knowledge among retailers and struggles in advertising. What orientwatchusa.com has provided is the first recognized channel for Orient watches in the United States. We are happy because we feel that this model can grow the brand and provide a useful platform for people to learn about Orient and about watches.”
Stay tuned for more updates on Mark Kim’s unique character and be sure to follow him on Twitter.
