Newsletter Schools, a splash of colour and a niche brand

The chequered flag may still be a long way off but our coverage of the Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix is hotting up.

Having started the week with an exclusive hint of what to expect in terms of stage-setting at this year’s Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix awards ceremony, we continued with our presentations of the competing watches, looking at the Ladies’ watch, Jewellery watch and Striking watch categories. This week we present a photo gallery of watches in the most hotly-contested field, that of men’s watches, an analysis of the more unusual submissions featuring mechanical complications for ladies and the artistic crafts, as well as an exclusive interview with the President, Carlo Lamprecht, and Director, Carine Maillard, of the Foundation of the Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix.

Our Summer Watches series moves from the specific (world timer watches presented last week) to the general with a presentation of some colourful men’s watches this week to go hand-in-hand with our earlier look at women’s watches with colour.

In the wider world of watchmaking, Olivier Müller considered the role of in-house watchmaking schools in the general context of watchmaker training, noting the significance of such schools in particular for the German brands in Glashütte, the relatively isolated centre of the country’s watchmaking industry. Nazanin Lankarin spoke to a different Olivier Müller, the new boss of L. Leroy, about his strategy for this niche brand with a formidable history.
