Report on unrest in Hong Kong

Since the beginning of the year, we’ve heard nothing but bad news from the watchmaking metropolis, the historic hub of Swiss watches in Asia. The trade dispute between China and the United States, and political tensions with Beijing, have put the city in a very bad position. Could the heart of watch trade leave the island for the mainland? A long-term shift seems to be underway, with current events acting only as an accelerator.
