We’re Number 1…

 I read in JCK (jewelry industry trade pub) recently that for the first time in 9 years the US is number one again when it comes to buying Swiss watches. In July the US had 10.9% of Swiss watch sales which finally beat out Hong Kong which had 10.7% . According to Jean-Daniel Pasche, the president of the federation of the Swiss Watch industry, the last time the United States topped the list was in October 2007.

The Wall Street Journal basically said the same thing. The Swiss watch industry known world round for high quality luxury timepieces, wrist Candy that one can truly drool over (yes I am writing for real watch enthusiasts); horological wonders that show that mechanical engineering is still practiced in a most beautiful and artistic form by true craftsman; where a piece of steel tied to your wrist with a leather strap can cost more than your house, is an industry that is in a state of flux.

 So what does this mean for us. In truth it means that the watch market around the world is going soft. So it's a buyer’s market. If you had your eye on that special piece perhaps now you can get a deal. It also means it is time to share some pics of our Swiss watches and for you to do the same.
