The eleventh Muse

We know the Olympian gods were unpredictable, unreliable, presumptuous, easily offended and quarrelsome, but they must also have had a deep appreciation of the arts.

On influencers

Returning to the subject of influencers, perhaps they don't all deserve to be tossed out with the trash, however great the temptation to reject them all as good-for-nothings.

The secrets of Bulgari watch design

Trees still grow up to the sky

The most effective forecast - at least for those of us who like to take a weekend break - isn't, so it seems, statistics, curves and counter-curves but the farmer's far more empirical method to look up at the sky, and let experience and knowledge do the rest.

"Young people, which we once were, will always follow their heart"

Coming here to Lausanne, and reflecting on the theme of this Forum, I asked myself a very simple question: imagine a young man, between 18 and 24 years old, just an ordinary young man, not some golden boy.

It's something we repeat over and over, to the point it has become almost a mantra: a fine watch contains not just mechanical perfection, beauty and the precious nature of the materials of which it is composed: it holds stories, loves and memories too. These are the self-same stories which day after day fuel the collector's passion. Those who already possess watches worthy of interest and those who are making their first acquisitions, somewhat haphazardly. They are the collectors of tomorrow, and as such we must afford them particular attention by helping them recognise the stories and values that give fine watchmaking its full significance.
