The digital edition of WatchPro’s May edition is live online, featuring an exclusive cover story interview with Swarovski’s UK managing director Hayley Quinn about the brand’s revitalised efforts to fire up watch sales.
The crystal jewellery giant has struggled to crack the watch market before, but a focus on improved quality coupled with on trend designs and a marketing campaign fronted by supermodel Miranda Kerr could change all that.
Laings of Glasgow, the venerable luxury watch and jewellery emporium, is celebrating its 175th anniversary this year, and WatchPro has spoken to Stuart Laing, the current head of the family business, which can trace its lineage back five generations about his love of watches, how to work with Switzerland’s finest makers and how the Laing dynasty will be secured for another generation as he looks forward to retirement.
Retailers love to know which watch trends are likely to make them money this year, and WatchPro has an unusual tip for you: put your money down on skulls and other gothic themes driving sales in 2015.
Add in an expose of maverick watch designer James Thompson and the second part of our review of the finest watches at Baselworld, and you have yet another edition of WatchPro that you cannot afford to miss.
