La Touraine announced today that Andrew Mitakides, Gem City Tonight host, is joining the La Touraine family as a new Brand Ambassador. Mitakides, known for his late-night style TV show in Dayton, OH, will be featuring the watches, Legacy, Voyager, and Red Crest on his bi-weekly show.

“La Touraine supports the bold, the risk takers and the hard workers needed to achieve great results. We seek explorers that are willing to do what is right, not what is easy in order to build a better life for themselves, their family and community,” states Dave Maggio, La Touraine Founder. “Andrew demonstrates these traits every day through his actions, community work and activism. We value his role as brand ambassador, as it is important to show customers the embodiment of what La Touraine represents.”

Mitakides, a Centerville High School alumnus, returned to the Dayton area after graduating from Hampden-Sydney and working full time as an actor on stage and screen in New York, Washington D.C. and more.  Gem City Tonight is gearing up towards the end of a successful premier season and features local artists, activists, local celebrities, politicians, and small businesses.

“To have an opportunity to work with such a prestigious company is such an honor.  I’ve known Dave since college and he is a great guy and business man, and having someone like him as a part of our show is a great privilege,” said Mitakides.

La Touraine watches are made for the explorer ready to tackle new challenges and build their own destiny. Named after the ship that brought Moggio’s great-grandparents to Ellis Island and inspired by his grandfather’s hard day’s work ethic at their silk mill. La Touraine represents the spirit of taking risks, making sacrifices, doing what is right, and building your own legacy. La Touraine has three men’s watches; Legacy, Voyager, and Red Crest.
