THE WATCH FILE
Conversation pieces 2019
Masterpieces destined ultimately
for museums? Some, yes,
perhaps. Or conversation pieces,
worn with affected casualness
and keen attention as to their effect?
Whatever their true status, present and future,
these timepieces – most of them costing a
fortune – all affirm that watchmaking is very
much alive; they represent a challenge, propose
improvements and in some cases even
pave the way to the future.
