Currently, it distributes 22 watch and jewellery brands in Spain, two of them being the group’s own brands. ARMETISA is the second oldest company in the group, founded in 1994 for the distribution of the Andorran area group brands. The first time the group entered the Portugese market was through the acquisition of CERTORA in 2008. Currently, it distributes more than 8 group brands in said market. And finally, the most recent additions to the group have been EUROCRONO, acquired in 2016 and EUROCRONO Portugal, founded in the same year for the distribution of internationally recognised brands, such as Guess.
