Our Vision - December 2018

Foreword

WMR - December 2018


As the year comes to an end, we see a lot of movement in the industry- both in India and worldwide. Closer home, it seems that there is a vibrancy and expectation of better times ahead. There have been a series of watch launches and new boutiques opening up in the country. World over the industry grapples with changes in technology, specifically smart watch technology, and the impact on the traditional industry. 

As we await the SIHH fair in Geneva, there is a sense of change in the age-old system of watch fairs as well. As you know, watch fairs, are undergoing massive changes and transformations. With high-profile exits at Baselworld and some changes at the SIHH with two brands exiting in 2020, we get a sense of what these changes are. With increasing dependence on technology and social media, have brands found another way to connect to their customers? Have fairs lost their charm entirely? That watchmakers have loads of ingenuity is something we all know and have all seen. No way do these changes dampen this creative streak in the industry, and we are thankful for that!

This issue is packed with exciting watches that you could consider buying this season, news from the watch world, some exciting collaborations you should watch for, and a lot of watch-talk! I wish you a wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New Year! Stay tuned for our next edition to discover the new borns at SIHH 2019.
