Foreword

WMR - May 2018


Dear friends,

Back from the impressive Baselworld 2018 Watch Fair, we are busy preparing a special issue that will present the diverse mix of watches that we saw at the fair. Indeed, over all these years the fair has kept pace with the changing times. While you will surely catch glimpses of some new releases in the current issue, do watch out for our Special Edition that will showcase the range of horological wonders from Baselworld 2018.

Of the major highlights in this issue is our report on the CITIZEN Japan Media Tour 2018 that took place in April. Watch Market Review was proud to be a part of this very enlightening experience. CITIZEN celebrates 100 years of existence this year. It is thus apt for them to celebrate such a momentous occasion in a very special way. Our visit gave us a deep insight into the history and development of this very versatile brand. We enjoyed Japanese hospitality at its best! We visited the CITIZEN Headquarters at Tokyo as well as the CITIZEN museum which comprehensively outlines the rich legacy of 100 years that makes the brand what it is today. Their Flagship Store at Ginza 6 Tokyo presents all the brands under the CITIZEN banner and serves to showcase the direction that the company is taking. However, the cherry on the cake was a visit to the CITIZEN Manufacture. It is here that one can see firsthand how the philosophies of the brand are translated into products. In our conversations with key officials from CITIZEN we also got a glimpse of the future. Do read our complete coverage of this visit.

The watch world has been quite active and as always, this issue presents all the relevant news and happenings for you.

Happy Reading!
