In the wake of the First World War, Swiss watchmaking underwent a period of profound crisis, resulting in a State-led reorganisation of the sector. This rescue operation took the form of cartel agreements that remained in place until the 1960s. Part one: the 1920s and 1930s.

Theodora Children's Trust puts a smile back on children's faces during prolonged hospital stays © Fondation Théodora
Point of View
Theodora, beautiful and wise

Theodora, empress. The Byzantine Empire's most celebrated sovereign, wife of Justinian I, was Theodora. Posterity remembers her for her beauty as well as her wisdom. Beautiful and wise also describes the work of the Theodora Children's Trust, which has nothing to do with Constantinople. Rather it puts a smile back on children's faces during prolonged hospital stays. Because laughter and serenity are important for getting better. At the very least, they ease the pain of what is often a heartbreaking situation.

With morning comes light

Whenever we chat about what's "in the air," inevitably talk turns to the weather and the changing climate, not just where we live but on all five continents. As the poet says, "with morning comes light" and morning, for me, is the year 2010 which just ended for Swiss watchmaking, an industry that is active across all four corners of the globe.
