Watch Wonder Week

LIVE from the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie with Montblanc

Like last year – and the year before that – my friend at Montblanc asked me to come and join them for the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie again. Of course, this is an opportunity that I can’t let go, so I happily accepted! 

Montblanc CEO, mister Lutz Bethge, was so kind to spent some time with me and tell you about the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie and how important this week is for Montblanc and the other watch brands that are present. We put together a video for you to enjoy and I hope this sheds some light on this week and the fair of all fairs…. Watch Wonder Week!


When talking numbers, there are 16 exhibiting brands, filling more then 30,000 square meters (!!), welcoming around 12,500 special guests (as this is an invitation-only fair) and 1,200 journalists among which is yours truly :)

So now on to my one minute of fame, being introduced by Montblanc CEO, mister Lutz Bethge. Tomorrow we present you an interview with mister Bethge and stay tuned, because tomorrow we have something VERY SPECIAL for you!
