The proliferation of smart watches and shaky Swiss luxury watch sales have been the focus of a lot of industry chatter this year. For the most part, the growth in smart watch sales and slowdown in luxury watch sales happen to be coincidental, as opposed to directly related. In fact, in addition to new smart watches being released, we anticipate the Swiss luxury watch industry to continue to experiment with new materials like titanium, more in-house movements, as well as the possibility of more consumer-friendly pricing.
We're looking forward to another exciting Baselworld and encourage you to keep up with our pre-, post-, and live Baselworld 2016 coverage here.
