The founder of the boutique, Georges Grintakis, has been in the industry for more than 20 years; 19 of those being here in Crans-Montana. His extensive experience and knowledge of the watch industry has made him a well-known name in the ski resort and his expert advice is widely sought after and highly regarded.
Since he was young, Georges has been fascinated by watches, jewelry, antiques & art. In 1990 he travelled to New York to work at his uncle’s workshop, which was predominantly working for Tiffany & Co. For the next 7 years he made many trips back to the US to continue learning and to excel his skills.
Georges has then completed a course in Gemology in Belgium and worked for 2 years in Antwerp before finally moving to Switzerland. For the next 7 years Georges was managing a watch & jewelry store in Crans Montana, further enriching his knowledge and building a large and highly loyal customer base.
Throughout his career, Georges has always wanted to create something of his own and in 2008, using only the finest materials and a keen eye for design, Georges created his own brand – Heritage.
After 10 years of success, Georges’ store was noticed by a renowned global retailer group who offered to buy the company to settle in Crans-Montana. They came to an agreement and after letting go of his shares, Georges decided to open his own store in Crans Montana – Georges G. It can now be found in prime location in the ski resort and welcomes an array of international clients every day.
