Newsletter - A bright future ahead for Harry Winston, says Nayla Hayek

Newsletter A bright future ahead for Harry Winston, says Nayla Hayek

An important interview from Baselworld, the latest tourbillons and a look ahead to this season’s upcoming watch auctions.

We start the week with an interview with the most important woman in the watchmaking industry. In addition to her position as Chair of the Board of Directors of the Swatch Group, Nayla Hayek has now also settled into the role of CEO of Harry Winston after the brand was acquired by the Swatch Group just over a year ago. She spoke to me about the potential for Harry Winston to become a one-billion Swiss franc business and revealed her personal favourites in the new collection.

“Jean-Claude Biver is a genius of the industry who rightly merits a biography”

Paul O'Neil

Further interviews with the management of other Swatch Group brands will follow over the next couple of weeks, as will our detailed reviews of the new models and trends that our contributors saw in Basel, starting tomorrow with David Chokron’s selection of tourbillons launched at the show.

The spring watch sales will be held in the major auction houses of Geneva next month. As expected, the star lots once again are signed by Patek Philippe, Rolex and Breguet. But as my preview of the Christie’s sale shows, there are some interesting trends emerging, not to mention some more affordable and quirky timepieces available for those who are not put off browsing the catalogue by the astronomical reserves for the star lots.
