July’s issue of WatchPro magazine is now available to read online packed with all the same news, features, trends and timepieces.
In this issue we reveal sponsorship fees and find out how much money big brands spend to win sporting partners.
We also take a look at how watch brands are moving into the realm of mobile smartphones and what they offer retailers. This month’s in-depth interview gets to know Karl Massey, owner of Prestons, who has launched Rolex’s first standalone store outside London.
Also featured are Bremont’s plans to open a production space in the UK by the end of the year. Plus there is a look at new black watches and a British based PVD customising service.
WatchPro also looks at the recent rising interest in mechanical watchmaking schools and what the British watch industry is doing to cater for it.
Finally, there is our monthly Tech Spot feature, this month taking a look at Partime, a watch that offers time in a geometric picture on an LCD screen on a round dial.
