Instigated by freelance journalist Joël A. Grandjean, the WatCH Café is a ‘think tank’ of watchmaking professionals. For the first time, this monthly event is moving to the exhibition area.
Thanks to brothers Alain and Olivier Guttly, founders of the Geneva Maison de l’Horlogerie à Genève, this event was born almost 6 years ago. Once a month, on the last Wednesday between 07:50 and 10:10, a representative few from the watchmaking world gather around media representatives and prestigious figures. Leading watchmakers, suppliers, world experts, trendsetters, students, politicians, independent and group CEOs all meet up. In a simple, informal atmosphere, attendees mingle, exchanging ideas, points of view and often… inside scoops. Recurrence and authenticity are the best attributes for passion..
A few months ago, after having hosted a few press conferences and shootings for Swiss national television RTS, the ‘think tank’ was launched for the first time in Neuchâtel, thanks to Patrick Goussard of Coutellerie des Halles: now on the same concept and at the same schedule (from 7:50 to 10:10 am), every last Thursday of every month.
