Beautiful blue for the Breguet Tourbillon Extra-Plat

Breguet adorns the dial of its Extra-Thin Self-Winding Tourbillon with a touch of deep blue, by using the traditional grand feu enamel technique. Today, Breguet keeps this art alive with a workshop entirely dedicated to enamelling.

Point of View
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.

Bovet, which recently became a partner to the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie, is now shared between three sites. (Part 2)

Ciao, ciao, bambino...

When I think of Gabriel Tortella, our friend who took leave of us too soon, I remember the lyrics of a song by Domenico Modugno that we used to sing when he would invite me to his dinners with friends: “Cos’è che trema sul tuo visino ? / È pioggia o pianto, dimmi cos’è?” (Tell me, what is trembling on your cheek? / Is it the rain or tears?) And it went on to the famous refrain: “Ciao, ciao, bambina…”
