Editorial Presenting The Dream Team…
Do you know the ones behind the scenes?
Dear WorldTempus family, last week you heard from the editors, who shared their personal thoughts with you on the occasion of our 20th anniversary. As we gathered last Friday to celebrate with our friends and partners here in Geneva, it occurred to me that there are so many of us here, from Team WorldTempus, who remain unknown and unseen by you, our audience. Some might say that it's the editor-in-chief's privilege and right to take the stage, especially during big moments such as an anniversary. But editors are nothing without their teams. It's time you heard from them.
Brice Lechevalier, executive director
As the owner of the site and director of the publishing house to which it is attached, I am proud of the team of 15 caring and talented people who work to bring WorldTempus to life and share our passion for watchmaking. It is for them, for the 80 brands and retailers who trust us year-round, and for the half a million monthly readers that I am doing everything I can to make this 20th anniversary an important milestone in its history. It is for this community that we have organised a great joint GPHG and WorldTempus party at the Musée Rath in Geneva, that we are investing in new tools such as the ShowCase or our YouTube channel to better interact with our audience and give them pleasure, as well as our new website which will be unveiled next year. I hope that the two entrepreneurs and the 30 watch brands that co-founded WorldTempus in 2001 are equally proud of how far their initiative has come at the dawn of the third millennium.
Cyrille, Director of Operations
After several years at WorldTempus, I can tell you that this site is quite an adventure! As COO and Digital Director, it means a lot to me to see our beloved company reach its 20th anniversary. We are fighting against all odds to create an amazing place online where the watch community can live. And my mission is to perpetuate the incredible field that is watchmaking. Here's to the next 20 years!
Liah Millasson, Commercial Director
Looking back, I realize that WorldTempus is everything I wanted for my career: a company in the watch industry, with an international reach and managed by a small team. This allows us to reinvent ourselves, to move forward and to bring more of you on board every day in this exciting adventure. And, even if we are celebrating our 20th anniversary today, believe me, we are only at the beginning and we are preparing some great surprises for you in the months to come!
Alexandra Montandon, Accounts & Admin Director
WorldTempus has opened me up to the digital world and allowed me to grow professionally. Even though I'm not in an editorial or digital role, I'm constantly learning new things and loving it.
Being involved with WorldTempus has allowed me to witness the hand-in-hand work of our internal Editorial/Sales/Digital teams at GMT Publishing with the PR, Communication and Digital teams of the manufactures, irrespective of the size or positioning of the brand. Like watchmaking itself, it is a team effort where multiple highly trained experts participate and provide the fantastic outcomes.

I started my WorldTempus adventure 6 years ago as a webmaster. It's a real pleasure and a great pride to be part of this great media group. We see Worldtempus growing day by day and we are constantly working on new and exciting projects. Being a part of this explosion of ideas, promoting our partners and the work of our great editors is a real challenge, and one we take on every day. Keep an eye on your screens because the innovations are not about to stop.
