The most recent couple of weeks have been a wild ride, no doubt. That is to say, even in the watch world (no doubt, we should disregard all the other things briefly), we’ve seen notorious exchange shows overturned and we discovered that Tiger really lays down with his Deepsea on . Yet, on top of all that, we’ve had Watch Madness , our first-truly Talking Watches bracket challenge. To say it’s been an impact and a triumph would be a remarkable understatement.
Over the most recent three weeks, you, our perusers, have projected in a real sense a huge number of votes, gradually narrowing the field to feature your aggregate most loved scenes. As it got down to the Sweet 16, the Elite Eight, and afterward into the Final Four, casting a ballot got more tight and more tight, and the match-ups got harder and harder. In the long run, a ruler was delegated, and the absolute first scene – highlighting Mr. John Mayer – brought home the title, however not without John Goldberger setting up a brave battle. There’s still such a great amount to discuss from Watch Madness, so I got Ben and James on the line to turn out a portion of the less discussed coordinate ups, their particular ways to deal with recording scenes of the arrangement, and the greatest shocks they encountered along the Watch Madness venture. You can see the full outcomes here , yet here’s the completed bracket for reference:
Adding to the energy, the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie (FHH) reported recently that the current year’s Watches & Wonders show will go on … on the web. This Saturday, in excess of twelve brands that would have taken part in the live show are dispatching their new looks as a component of an online stage being facilitated by the FHH. I had the option to converse with FHH executive and overseeing chief Fabienne Lupo on Friday to get somewhat of a review of what’s coming just as certain contemplations on the job that associations like the FHH can play in these fierce times.
Finally, polishing things off, we have one more story of one of our colleagues’ work-from-home watches. This time, we have Jon Bues, our senior supervisor, discussing why, notwithstanding not going out, he’s been shaking an exemplary travel watch these most recent couple of weeks. Once in a while a watch’s capacity goes far past reasonableness itself.
