Europa Star TIME.BUSINESS

We can all use a little more perspective from time to time. That’s exactly what we get from Serge Maillard’s piece on the “galaxy” of wristwatches in “Volume Brands: The Lessons to be Learned from the 99%”. In a role reversal, we look at what the so-called 1% of luxury watchmaking might be able to learn from the producers of the majority of the world annual 1.2 billion wristwatches.

From the global to the local, we also provide everything that you always wanted to know about the Swiss watch industry. Did you know, for example, that Zurich tops the list in terms of brand density in Switzerland? Check out the rest of the piece to discover more.

The future is near, and it could be frightening.

Previously considered the biggest threat to mechanical watches, the quartz is now being challenged on two fronts: affordable mechanical watches and more functional smartwatches. Will it be able to survive?

In a very saturated market, it’s difficult for young brands to carve out their niche. A special feature profiles brands - both establishing and starting up - that are using wood to craft their timepieces. Once bulky and not very durable, today’s wooden wristwatches are more stylish, more durable, and yes even more affordable. So, should you go for wood?
