Our Vision - June 2017

Foreword

WMR - June 2017


A little over three years of the Narendra Modi government and we have seen some bold economic moves. While the demonetization last year did impact sales in the short term, it is thought that in the long term there should be more streamlining and organization in varied industries.

The GST also holds the same promise, but eventually time will tell! We have spoken to many watch brands and on the whole we get an impression that the GST is being welcomed. However, any new economic move will need to be tested practically in order to assert the effectiveness. The industry remains positive.

The next few months promise to shake things up a bit in the horological world. We are soon to enter the festive and the wedding season. Historically, they have always been times when the demand for watches goes up. This is for gifting as well as for personal use. This is the time when brands get active as well and there are many launches and events happening. It promises to be an exciting time ahead. With smartwatches having created a niche for themselves, it is interesting to see the varied interpretations of smart technology on traditional watches.

We have a packed issue for you: You will find various new watches curated for you, with a special focus on sporty timepieces. We look at the use for mother-of-pearl in watch dials and also some exceptional clocks. Interesting conversations and events top it all up! Do read our parallel Baselworld Special Issue that focusses on the largest watch fair in the world! Happy reading!
