Our Vision - April 2018

Foreword

WMR - April 2018


We are just back from the Baselworld 2018 Watch Fair. In keeping with the changing times the fair has metamorphosed into an agile platform that continues to meet the changing demands of the horological market. It was heart-warming to see the varied examples of creativity that our industry is so known for. We will be out with a special issue dedicated to the fair. However, you will also catch glimpses of various new releases in the current issue as well.

One of the watches that really stood out at the fair was Frederique Constant’s Hybrid Manufacture 3.0. To us, it represents a new melange of the traditional Swiss craftsmanship and the modern smart watch technology, that has created a niche for itself. Naturally, the watch takes a place on our cover and we explore it in greater detail.

Summer is upon us. This is indeed the right time to indulge in some aquatic activities. Consequently, one needs great time gear for these underwater adventures. The Horloger explores some stellar diving watches. We also converse with A. Lange & Söhne CEO Wilhem Schmid in order to understand the direction that the German watchmaker is planning to take in India. We also talk to Paolo Marai, President & CEO of Timex Group Swiss Luxury Division, and get an understanding about Versace and Salvatore Ferragamo, both of which are also quite popular in India. 

Of course, there has been a lot happening in the watch world. We crystallize all the information and present it to you here. Let’s welcome the summer….and beat the heat with some really cool watches! 

Happy Reading!
