atch brands are always eager to look to the past, to revive vintage models and create the bestsellers of tomorrow.

In a time of deep existential crisis for the watch industry, it is also worth looking to history for business guidance, especially when, like today, it’s hard to get your bearings.

The Cold War, the quartz crisis, the first pandemic of 2003 and the 2008 financial crisis presented no less of a threat than today’s pandemic, even though the size of the watch industry now makes its impact seem bigger.
