Katchin jewellery & watch marketplace expands to Europe

In January this year, Katchin, announced its launch in the UK marking the start of the first global marketplace created specifically for jewellery and watches. Built for the accessory lover, Katchin brings the most sought-after names together in a one-stop-shop with curated content and how-to style guides to showcase the marketplace’s vast array of styles and brands.

Now Katchin is opening up in Europe following and has launched in France and Germany. In Western Europe alone, the jewellery and watch sectors are predicted to grow between 5% and 7% in the next year, representing roughly 13 billion Euros in consumer spending. We expect to see a US launch for the marketplace in 2024.

Earlier this year, Katchin transformed the online shopping experience by launching the first-ever marketplace created specifically for jewellery and watches in the UK. Capitalising on the success of our first market launch, I’m excited to formally announce our expansion into Germany and France. With this launch, accessory fans across all three countries can rely on Katchin to help them find the accessories that speak to them – no matter their style.

Shelly Gardner, General Manager, Katchin

Katchin is an entirely new way to shop for accessories, curating its brands and products on a dedicated marketplace, shoppable in a way that is unique to jewellery and watches. The platform was built with support from backing partner, Fossil Group, and Mirakl.

Curating both well-established and up-and-coming names, Katchin has partnered with over 70 brands to date. Notable brands include iconic designers like Emporio Armani and Issey Miyake, as well as watch and jewelry specialists, like Otazu, Ania Haie, Festina, and Rotary.

Marketplaces are growing at twice the rate of overall eCommerce, and this acceleration is being driven by innovative new marketplaces like Katchin. By choosing the curated marketplace model, Katchin will be able to exceed shoppers’ expectations for a large selection of watch and jewellery brands, while maintaining control over the customer experience. Mirakl is thrilled to partner with Fossil Group to power the first-ever marketplace created specifically for jewellery and watches, and we look forward to supporting Katchin’s global expansion.
