WMR - July 2016


Dear friends,

The monsoons are in full swing and hopefully this should benefit the economy greater. As we all know, there is always a ripple effect of the monsoon across trade. In our country, monsoon is much more than a mere season. With the economy tied to the performance of the rains, the showers have much more overall impact that rises above the rural areas and influences urbanites as well. Let’s hope that these initial signs of a good monsoon continue throughout the season.

Welcome to the Baselworld Special Edition. The most important watch fair may have concluded for the year in March, but its influence will pervade the entire year. Look at our watch picks from the fair as well as a gist of what it was like to be present there and to experience firsthand the immense versatility of the industry. While the beautiful watches that we saw at the fair will continue to mesmerize us, the wonderful conversations that we have had with our friends in the industry have also left a deep imprint on our minds. In fact, this issue may well be called a conversation special! We share all this with you!

Hands On Time, our group magazine, was proud to be the only Indian magazine on board in Florence, where Officine Panerai hosted their exhibition “PANERAI – DIVE INTO TIME”. I had a fantastic time rediscovering the historic roots of the city and the brand that was so lovingly founded here! Read on to know more about my trip in a special report covering my journey.

I hope you enjoy reading all this. Of course, our regular features will ensure that you’ve had a full update on the varied watch events happening in town and around the world as well as newsworthy watch-talk.

Happy Reading
