Both Calvin Klein, Inc. and Movado Group, Inc. have partnered up for their latest project, a global watch and jewelry license agreement. The former is owned by PVH Corp. and the agreement will be in full effect in January of 2022 for the next five years.

Calvin Klein has been looking for a way to revamp its jewelry and watch business for some time, and this latest collaboration will hopefully ensure some success.
