Newsletter Richemont helping to train the watchmakers of tomorrow

Blue dials from Panerai, training from Richemont, more GPHG analysis and a watch dedicated to Van Gogh.

Today we publish the second instalment in Camille Gendre’s series of three articles on the various training courses offered at the Richemont Group’s massive new “Campus Genevois de Haute Horlogerie” on the outskirts of Geneva. After her article last week focusing on the basic training options, today Camille looks at how the Campus evaluates the skills and knowledge of watchmaking professionals in order to guide them in their vocational training. A third article next week will conclude this series on the training of tomorrow’s watchmakers through courses that are available to school leavers and are not just restricted to the brands of the Richemont Group.

« Ce mois-ci, gagnez une montre Eterna pour dames »

We also start the week with a look at four new Panerai models (two Luminor, two Radiomir) that share the common theme of having a blue dial. It’s surprising that a colour so clearly linked to the marine world and Panerai’s history should be making waves in the collection only now. Read the full story here.

Our analysis of the entrants in this year’s Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève continues with Camille examining the tourbillon entrants and me offering my thoughts on the men’s watches competing in this important category. Later this week, Camille also reviews Blancpain’s support for the Gombessa expeditions. Olivier Müller celebrates the 160th anniversary of Ernest Borel with a closer look at this relatively discreet brand, while Michèle Brunner, inspired by the recently launched Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso model dedicated to Vincent Van Gogh, will delve into the detail of this piece.

Our summer competitions continue, with a highly sought-after TAG Heuer leather jacked up for grabs today. Our editor-in-chief has one and is the envy of all his friends and colleagues and Patrick Dempsey has one, too, so don’t miss out on your chance to win this stylish item of clothing today. More great prizes are on offer every day, from scented candles by Dior to a poker set from DeWitt, a Reuge mechanical music box and a pair of cufflinks from Jacob & Co. Be sure to come back regularly for a chance to win!
