NEW YORK, March 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ELYSEE is turning to their devoted Facebook friends to find the latest brand ambassadors for their European timepieces. The brand's "Face Of The Month" contest provides U.S. consumers with the opportunity to win an ELYSEE men's or women's watch of their choice up to $750 retail, their photo on the ELYSEE Facebook wall for the following month, and a chance at a trip to Las Vegas in June.

Each month, consumers who "Like" the ELYSEE USA Facebook page can upload their photo, a short bio, and a comment on why fans should consider them as the most likable face. The contestant who receives the most Facebook "Likes" is crowned the ELYSEE Face of the Month winner. Official contest rules are available at www.Facebook.com/ELYSEEwatches.

"We developed this contest to show appreciation amongst our Facebook friends, and to generate excitement within our virtual community," says Zion Reuven, vice president of ELYSEE USA.


Although a 50-year-old European brand, ELYSEE timepieces entered the U.S. market in 2010 to instant acclaim. Embracing the spirit of 'heritage' – classic details that evoke a storied history – a retro style is one of the company's hallmarks. For the other styles, construction is enhanced by features including high-end complications, surgical-grade stainless steel and finely-stitched leather bands. The collection includes timepieces for both women and men. All timepieces are designed and crafted in Germany, with retail prices for a wide range of automatic and quartz-powered models from $295-$995. ELYSEE timepieces are currently sold at fine jewelry retailers around the country, and online at www.ELYSEEUSA.COM.

The brand will launch several new styles at Baselworld 2011, in Hall 5.1, Booth E35.
