II. Emerging Watchmakers

In the premium and luxury watch segments, the standards of excellence are intimidatingly high.

The Emerging Watchmakers Portfolio is a series of interviews giving an in-depth look at this impressive group of rising timepiece specialists. By way of striking designs and constant technical refinement, these companies are spearheading the future of the mid- to top-tier watch marketplace.

IV. Leading Ladies
Date x – y, 2016
The emerging luxury community is bubbling with impressive female
leaders, who, just like their male colleagues, are advancing the emerging luxury cause with tenacity and gusto. An increasing number of women’s brands have abandoned the trendy, fashion-based approach to luxury goods, in favor of a more specialized and functional stance. The Leading Ladies Portfolio is an effort to identify under one banner, the women we consider to be the most influential female founders and leaders in this area.
