LOS ANGELES – A luxury watch retailer in Beverly Hills is accused of not paying for watches it ordered.
Chronoswiss AG filed a complaint on March 8 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against R & S Antiques Inc., doing business as David Orgell, and Does 1-100 alleging breach of contract and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in November 2015, the defendants ordered 13 luxury watches for the total amount of $78,387.50 and $30,515 for six watches on consignment. However, the defendants allegedly failed to pay the full purchase price within 60 days of receiving the invoice as agreed upon by both parties.
The plaintiff holds R & S Antiques Inc. and Does 1-100 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to pay or return the remaining consignment watches ordered and failed to pay the purchase price of the watches when it came due.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant, purchase price of $78,387.50 plus interest of $5,639.55, purchase price of $30,515.00 plus interest of $1,103.63, additional damages, incidental costs, treble damages, costs and fees of action, and other relief as the court deems just. It is represented by Ericka F. Houck Englert of Davis Graham & Stubbs LLP in Denver.
