Founded in 1968 by Mr. Klein, CK has built a reputation as a leader of American fashion through their clean aesthetic and design. Global sales of Calvin Klein products exceeded $9 billion in 2017 and were distributed in over 110 countries. Today, Calvin Klein employs over 10,000 associates globally. CK watches are designed with fashion in mind, meaning a minimalist style. Calvin Klein branched into the watch industry in 1997 to create a new and imitable kind of watch. Furthermore, in 2004 Klein also entered the jewellery industry with a pure, refined aesthetic that radiates sensuality.
