Newsletter Showdown in the slowdown

As our coverage this week shows, watch industry activity marches relentlessly on, while behind the scenes there is manoeuvring at the world’s two biggest watch shows.

After seven days non-stop travelling to take in the TimeCrafters show in New York and the important Panerai Dive into Time exhibition in Florence (read the full story later this week and in the meantime watch my short video review on YouTube), I was back in the office just long enough to write this week’s newsletter before heading off again, back to Italy to discover the ties between Bovet and the renowned Italian automotive design house Pininfarina.

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

Brice Lechevalier accompanied me on the trip to New York and had the chance to interview Tiffany’s CEO Frédéric Cumenal. Meanwhile, back in Switzerland Isabelle Guignet enjoyed a guided tour of Cartier’s beautifully renovated farm in La Chaux-de-Fonds that now houses the brand’s artistic crafts workshop. You can see some of her photos on our social networks and you will be able to read her full report on Wednesday on the site.

Bold decisions in uncertain times came last week as the two Kering group watch brands Girard-Perregaux  and Ulysse Nardin both announced that they would be exhibiting at the SIHH next year. In an exclusive interview with Swiss newspaper Le Temps, Fabienne Lupo, President of the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie, the organisers of the SIHH, revealed that the exhibition would also experiment with a limited opening to the general public on just one day next year. For the first time, the world’s two major watch exhibitions will be open to the public – all for the price of a Swatch!
