THE BIG INTERVIEW: Manfredi’s Roberto Chiappelloni describes his journey from trattorias to top end timepieces

APRIL 23, 2019

Roberto Chiappelloni built his first successful business empire as a restaurateur, bringing his passion for food from his Italian homeland to the residents of Queens and upstate New York. But a love of watches and a chance encounter with the owner of a pawn shop who sold him unloved timepieces turned into a second career as the creator and owner of Manfredi Jewels. The company now has two stores in Greenwich, CT, one selling pieces from the world’s most exclusive independent watchmakers, the other an authorized Rolex boutique. Mr Chiappelloni has helped many great watchmakers get a foothold in the United States, but now, as he tells WatchPro’s Rob Corder, finds little loyalty in return for his decades of service and wants to see much tougher action to fight the gray market so that he can continue giving gold standard service and support to his valued customers.

In 2019, the new Breguet Classique 5177 Grand Feu Blue Enamel is essentially inspired by these neoclassical lines. However, Breguet adds a fresh new touch this time, with the color of the blued hands being transposed onto the dial; presenting an unprecedented deep blue grand feu enamel.

Our friends over at Manfredi Jewels in Greenwich, Connecticut, are marking a pretty major anniversary this year – it's been 30 years since Roberto Chiappelloni set up shop and created one of the best watch retailers out there today.

It should be a pretty incredible night, with cocktails, food, and some of the coolest watches (and watch collectors) you'll find anywhere in the world.

Voutilainen x Manfredi 30th Anniversary

MAY 24, 2018

Two things the watch industry loves more than anything are collaborations and anniversaries. When the two are combined in the right way, you can get a very special timepiece that exceeds what any single entity could have imagined on their own; when combined poorly – and boy can it be done poorly – you get hackneyed watches with inflated price tags and fluffy marketing campaigns. Luckily, the watch we have here today is a near perfect example of the former, and doesn't contain a trace of the latter. To celebrate their 30th year in business, Manfredi Jewels of Greenwich, Connecticut, has teamed up with Kari Voutilainen to create a set of eight complicated, customizable watches in stainless steel. Yeah, like I said.
