The September issue of WatchPro magazine is now available to read online, featuring a focus on watches online and an interview with Citizen UK’s managing director.
Read our 10-page special about watches online, which highlights the impact that social networking and blogging have had on watch retail and marketing and also find out how both fashion and luxury brands are boosting their online image.
The issue also has an update on the condition of the UK watch market in the latest quarterly update from Jonathan Hedges, global product manager at retail analyst GfK. While sales values are robust, the number of units are continuing to decline.
In an interview, Citizen UK managing director Mark Robinson tells us how life has been since he stepped up into his role earlier in the year and about the consumer research they are carrying out into the watch market and brand perception.
There’s also an overview of some of the brands that will be at International Jewellery London, which starts on Sunday. Swiss-made, Danish-design brand Lars Larsen is new to the UK and a first timer at the show, we’ve run a Q&A with co-founder and owner Dan Corfitzen.
As well as reading our trends piece on oval-shaped watches, we’ve got stories on brands including Hugo Boss, Kenneth Cole, Cartier, Panerai, Oris and Oceanarc.
