MILAN — Damiani is intent on building its watch division as the brand celebrates its 85th anniversary.
Although Damiani first dabbled in watches more than a decade ago, it is now pressing on the accelerator by increasing its offerings, primarily designed for a female clientele. The new designs, which run from basic to bling, will be available starting in the fall of 2010. Prices are still being set.
