Foreword

WMR - March 2017


Dear friends,

The past three months have seen a lot happening in the political and economic scenario. In spite of major happenings like demonetization, presentation and impact of the budget, elections in the country and so on, Indian economy continues to grow at 7% +, which indeed is a welcome sign. The Indian economy has taken a lot in its stride and it continues to grow in a more or less healthy manner. Though demonetization seemed to affect us initially, the economy was restored quickly. We present a short take on the budget, from viewpoints gathered from key people from different businesses.

The horological calendar is filled with exciting events that span countries and continents. It is here that watch lovers and collectors can get up, close and personal with their favourite timepieces. Watchmakers rightly see these events as a perfect occasion to launch new ideas and concepts. We started the year with the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) held in Geneva. By the time you read this, our team would be at the Baselworld Fair, by-far the largest watch fair in the world.

This issue presents a report of the key timepieces that caught our attention at the SIHH, as well as some interesting conversations that we had with brand managers and representatives at the fair. While we will present a detailed report of the Baselworld fair in a special issue, we discuss some pre-Basel releases in Essentials and Time Unleashed.

Our other regular sections and features will also provide for interesting reading till we are back from Baselworld with a dedicated issue to the king of all watch fairs!

Happy Reading!
