We are officially two months out from the 3rd Annual Sol Meller Memorial Blood Drive at Feldmar!
Sol Meller, my father, was the son-in-law of Harriet and Barney Feldmar. With a passion for watchmaking and customer service, my dad joined the business in the early 70s, building upon the existing foundation and leading the company to be one of the fastest growing in LA. We lost “Uncle Sol,” as he was referred to by many generations of Feldmar customers, in 2015 but his legacy lives on in so many ways. One of those ways is through the blood drive we host at Feldmar annually. As a generous blood and platelet donor throughout his lifetime, we know Sol would be proud seeing how the community has come together to give the gift of life.
This year’s blood drive will take place on November 30th, 2019. Come to Feldmar between 9am and 3pm to donate blood, enjoy food and refreshments, and participate in giveaways. Make an appointment to join us here.
About The Author: Scott Meller
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Scott joined Feldmar Watch Company, Inc. under the tutelage of his father, Sol. As a fourth generation family member, Scott’s forward-thinking business acumen has placed Feldmar on the cutting edge of the luxury timepiece market. Scott’s favorite part about working at Feldmar is being a part of his family’s multi-generational business and having worked alongside his father. His accomplishments are many, including the expansion and remodel of the Feldmar flagship store, as well as a second location inside The Beverly Hilton.
Since attending Santa Monica College, Scott has become an expert in the technical aspects of the timepieces sold at Feldmar. Each year, he travels to Switzerland—the watchmaking capital of the world—to attend the Baselword Watch & Jewelry Fair and build upon his extensive knowledge of this quickly-evolving industry.
Scott is very proud of the way Feldmar customers are put first: “We regularly go out of our way to meet the needs of our clients. A client once purchased a rather significant watch as a birthday gift for his brother who lived in New York. Our client asked how we were going to deliver the gift and we responded with the typical answer, we would ship it by FedEx. After we answered his question, we could tell that he wanted a more personalized experience for the delivery and offered to have it hand-delivered by one of our associates. He lit up at the thought, and so off went one of our associates to New York City for the day to hand-deliver the gift.”
