JEAN-PAUL GI­RARDIN

Vice Pres­i­dent, Bre­itling

Plaza Watch International - - Baselworld 2015 -

What does Baselworld mean to you per­son­ally and pro­fes­sion­ally, and how do you pre­pare for it?

It is THE place to be. For all pro­fes­sion­als of the watch in­dus­try, Baselworld is the most im­por­tant event of the year. Re­gard­ing Bre­itling, the fair is the first op­por­tu­nity to see all our new mod­els for the year ahead. It means a lot of prepa­ra­tion but also a lot of ex­pec­ta­tions. Hav­ing the chance to meet so many peo­ple from all over the world within a sin­gle week pro­vides for an in­cred­i­bly rich and unique ex­change and ex­pe­ri­ence.

What is one of your favourite mem­o­ries from any of the pre­vi­ous Baselworld fairs?

Ev­ery year, my favourite mo­ment is when we fi­nally have the priv­i­lege to present our new prod­ucts and to lis­ten to the first pieces of feed­back. Hav­ing quite a lot of in­ter­est­ing new things to present this year, it might well be that my favourite mem­ory is yet to hap­pen!
