RIGHT TIMING: The Bongo brand, a division of Candie’s Inc., has entered a licensing deal with Accutime Watch Corp. to produce a line of watches to debut for spring 2005. The collection of interchangeable leather cuff bands in polkadots, solids and tweeds will retail from $25 to $35 and will be sold in moderate department and specialty stores.

Paul Frank Industries also has launched a new watch division, PF Timing, under a licensing agreement with watch company Vestal. Paul Frank has included watches in its collection for the past four years, but the deal with Costa Mesa, Calif.-based Vestal will allow for a broader range of items, including wall and alarm clocks and limited-edition watches. Priced from $55 to $250 retail, the collection will range from colorful vinyl designs to higher-end limited-edition pieces. Come fall, PF Timing will hit stores such as Bloomingdale’s and Villians in San Francisco.
