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.|
