p. SPEAKER Watch market. Results. Tendencies. Forecasts
Many jewelers paid attention to stably developing watch market in the difficult time of economic crises, rises in prices of precious metals and decrease in buyer activity at the jewellery market. It appeared that the business diversification by creation of watch show-windows within the shop, "islands" in the shopping center and even opening of specialized watch shops – is logical and perspective. As the maintenance of watch business which is parallel to jewellery became not an individual phenomenon (about experience with watches – both jewellery, and steel – we wrote in the previous issues of "Navigator"), we will quite explain the interest of jewellery public to the events happening at the watch market.
What are the prospects of its development? How active is the consumer audience? What watches are in trend today and why? On what to stake, forming the autumn and winter range?
We addressed all these questions to participants of the round table – to experts of watch business.
