    Unhappy NYTimes Article: Movado Group Watch Giant Passes On

    Thought you all might be interested. RIP.
    (Excerpt)
    Gedalio Grinberg, who at 15 sold his first clock in his native Cuba for $18, then went on to amass a fortune in the United States by helping turn expensive wristwatches like Piaget into widely advertised portable status symbols with mass appeal, died on Sunday in Manhattan. He was 77.
