Watchmaker Tag Heuer S.A. sued Diamonds & Dials, a jewelry store at 106 West 34th Street in Manhattan., and its owner, Adam Gindy, for trademark infringement and unfair competition. According to the suit filed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan Wednesday, the store allegedly misrepresented itself as an authorized retailer of Tag Heuer products. Tag Heuer asked the court to enjoin the store from using its trademark and to be awarded profits derived from acts of trademark infringement. Gindy did not respond to a request for comment.
