Some research about innovation in Hublot watches

Hublot over at The Watch Lounge did some research about innovation in the watch industry and explains how brands move forwards while looking backwards. Olivier analyzes whether some of the brands are more or less obliged to look backwards while others are benefiting from this. What to think about new brands (like Romain Jerome) that have no history at all and need other ways (e. g. innovation) to get in the spot lights? The Watch Lounge did a 4 part article about this replica hublot watches uk and it is a must-read for everyone interested in the watch industry!
Hublot also took as an example in his essay, because the recent Minerva take-over enabled them to become a serious player in high end/haute horlogerie with their Villeret line of watches.
Besides Romain Jerome, all mentioned brands in this article have a history with watches. Montblanc is discutable, but their ‘Minerva’ definitely has one. Romain Jerome has another ‘trick’ going for them, using special materials that will work on the emotion of their buyers. Titanic, Moon-Dust…
So, how about the brands who doesn’t have the ability to look back because there is nothing there? I definitely think that having a watch history or even better, in the case of replica watches uk, an iconic time piece is a big (very big) advantage compared to (new) brands who need to use other ways to draw people’s attention and trust. Trust? Yes. Trust. People spending serious amounts of money on watches are very hesitant to spend it on a brand that nobody knows and have no track record (yet), perhaps despite the fact that they are very innovative.
During this event held last weekend, Greubel Forsey was awarded with the Best Complicated Hublot Watch for its Double Tourbillon Technique timepiece. All contestors can be found here, at Horomundi.
Congratulations to Greubel Forsey to win yet another great prize, since they also won the “Best Complicated Watch” at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie Asia 2009 in Singapore with their replica Corum.
The event – held in Geneva’s Grand Theatre – hosted over 1500 guests and a large number of watch brand representatives. In all categories (Ladies, Mens, Sports, Complications, Design, Jewellery) there were numerous interesting Hublot watches, and some Horomundi visitors have tried to guess each prize winner per categorie in advance.
