The 4th Forum de la Haute Horlogerie, held on November 14th 2012 in Lausanne, under the theme “Time to Share”. Find the various contributions to the 2012 Forum here.
Sharing resources, ideas and values is at the heart of the Forum. In a world where luxury has become a fluctuating notion, shifting with cultures and trends, Fine Watchmaking is well-advised to examine its foundations of creation and innovation. The theme of this Forum – time to share – confirms the need for a cognitive pause, a “break in transmission”. It must engage our attention, challenge our convictions, even cast doubt in our minds if it is to help us move this common project forward: to preserve cohesion and fulfil the expectations of tomorrow’s consumers.
