Carson Chan on the future of the watch industry and GPHG
Listen now
In the middle of our chat with Carson Chan, Chief Advisor to the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie, he makes a bold claim — that no other type of object has changed from the category of ‘need’ to the category of ‘want’ as profoundly as the wristwatch. Since recording the call, Andy and Felix have been wracking their brains for a better answer – but still haven’t come up with one. This insight is one of Carson’s many pearls of wisdom. We also speak about his role at the FHH, the state of collecting, the future of the industry and how to improve the GPHG. On top of that, Carson effortlessly schools Felix and Andy with one of his fiendish Instagram quizzes. Suffice it to say a good time was had by all. Looking for less loops?
