On this week’s episode of aBlogtoWatch Weekly, Ariel, Rick, and David are joined by Sylvain Berneron from Breitling. To kick off the show is a discussion about whether or not watch collecting advice is actually intended to benefit consumers, or if people would just be better off ignoring all of it and simply buying whatever timepieces they actually enjoy. From there, it’s a discussion of what our hosts think might be unveiled at Watches & Wonders Geneva 2023 from Parmigiani Fleurier, Roger Dubuis, A. Lange Söhne, IWC, Vacheron Constantin, Montblanc, and more. The conversation then turns to whether or not having everything produced in-house is actually good for the greater watch industry, before wrapping up the discussion by talking about the return of Daniel Roth under LVMH, and what we might expect from the brand in the future.
