The Art of Simplicity – Hossein Lotfi

28. November 2017
Earlier this month, a group of German business managers made a grand tour of Swiss watch companies. Their goal was to understand how Swiss watches are made today and to exchange ideas about business and entrepreneurship with the CEOs. Their trip led them to the Vallée de Joux, Geneva, Biel, and Schaffhausen, where they met with the CEOs of IWC, Audemars Piquet, Chopard, and MB&F. It also brought them to Lucerne for a watch company quite a bit smaller by any business measure.
