Good but CVC isn’t a watchmaker, just the majority shareholder - unless you’re planning to list the majority owners of Swatch, Richemont and LVMH stock ; )

Why am I talking about this and showing you all this image? Because it’s important to understand that as much as we love watches – and I truly do – watchmaking is a still a business and business is, if you ask watchmakers, pretty bad. Watch sales are flat or down year after year and these massive conglomerates are cutting corners and releasing pieces that are derivative and aimed at flash over substance. That’s fine. Business is business. But I encourage you look at watch companies with a more critical eye. These companies bought centuries old brands and turned them into what you see today and their history often has little to do with what they show off at Basel. For my money I’d much rather support a watchmaker who creates art than a watchmaker that pumps out a million identical pieces every day.

I hear that business is tough. But I don't see prices dropping...they keep going up.

My watch repairer is a sole trader and he is run off his feet and has appointed two other watch makers to assist in the last year.

When he is sitting on his hands and the price of a steel Rolex drops I'll be more likely to accept things are getting dire.
