Danny’s approach to luxury retail, coupled with a drive to confront challenges and an appetite for all things watch-related has led to several related ventures and business interests throughout the last 35 years, including a watch distribution company, a media and publishing company, and a web-based watch repair operation. Danny’s interest and investment in technology is not limited to the watch category; he has co-founded several technology and real estate based companies over the tenure of his illustrious career.
