Point of View
Those Italians!

Those Italians! After Dumas' four Musketeers, all French of course, recent decades have spawned a new breed of Italian "musketeers" who are chancing the privilege of the transalpine economy and luxury. In my day, the 20th century, we Italians were few and far between at the head of historic French brands. The situation is slightly different today.

Customer, who are you, where are you?

A survey by Confindustria, the Italian organisation of employers, estimates that in 2015 there will be 201 million well-off - even wealthy - Chinese: the population of France, Germany and Italy combined. A figure that is expected to rise to 424 million in 2020. This is a tremendous opportunity for every luxury brand, including those in Fine Watchmaking which demonstrate an authentic and competitive approach to this market. To take a more fundamentalist tack, one wonders if every brand that equates China with Cockaigne will make contact with this new and attractive clientele in the most appropriate way.
