About us


The 1916 Company, the newly launched company comprising WatchBox, Govberg, Radcliffe, and Hyde Park Jewelers, is pleased to announce a traveling jewelry exhibition in partnership with Eleonor Picciotto and The Eye of Jewelry, showcasing collections by contemporary jewelry designers Suzanne Syz, Alexandra Rosier, Selim Mouzannar, and Elie Top. Curated by the dynamic Parisian journalist and watch-obsessed jewelry expert Eleonor Picciotto, whose platform The Eye of Jewelry is dedicated to the world of fine jewelry, watches, and jewelry in watchmaking; these brilliant designers transform gemstones, precious metals, and mesmerizing color into elegantly bold collections, evoking the similar allure of independent watchmaking.
At the heart of this initiative is a commitment to fostering a deeper appreciation and understanding of the heritage and savoir-faire of jewelry design. This extends beyond aesthetics, elevating the experience with rich content and educational insights, presented online within a dedicated content gallery on theeyeofjewelry.com, and through private appointments and engaging discussions during the event.
“In working with Eleonor, we are bringing together the talent, artistry, culture, and global perspectives of four prolific designers who we cannot wait to introduce to our community,” shared The 1916 Company’s Executive Chairman, Danny Govberg. “Content and context are everything when it comes to the emotional connections we form with watches. We constantly seek opportunities to bring collectors behind the scenes, tapping into the minds of the industry’s greatest watchmakers; and with this exhibition, we’re extending the spotlight to the jewelry realm.”
The 1916 Company’s client advisors will be joined by Eleonor Picciotto and designer Suzanne Syz to present jewelry collections in Miami (November 29 – December 1), New York City (December 4 – 6), and Baltimore (December 9). Collectors, enthusiasts, and friends are invited for appointments and engaging talks during this time.


Analyzing the watch and jewelry press highlighted the fact that everything had been done for the watchmaking industry: blogs, forums, guides, magazines, websites, webzines, web TV… and so on.

Too often, women are left on the side without a media dedicated to them. Jewelry or feminine watches are mainly mentioned in chronicles, articles or special sporadic editions of fashion and lifestyle magazines.

The purpose of The Eye of Jewerly is to depict everything and everyone gravitating around that industry. From fine jewelry to high jewerly; institutional houses or new designers; jewelry in watches or vice versa not to forget the launch of new collections, a selection of iconic jewels or watches, The Eye of Jewelry looks after everything.

On a more educative level, interviews with designers and key players of the industry such as stone-dealer, watchmakers, stone-setters; investigations on a specific topic, definitions about stones, tools and techniques in addition to short videos, news report and a snapshot on the jewelry events calendar will give a wide overview of what happens out there.
