COUTURE Conversations: A Collection Of Insights From The Luxury Trade Show
What happens in Vegas doesn’t have to stay in Vegas. Watchonista’s Josh Shanks sat down with industry leaders to bring you deeper insight into the state of the watch industry.
Last month, we attended COUTURE 2021, the luxury watch and jewelry event in Las Vegas. For the first time in almost two years, the North American watch community came together to introduce new watches and share their passion for timepieces.
Meanwhile, over at Watchonista’s Villa, we invited prominent players to sit down and divulge their insights on the state of the union of watchmaking, retail, and collecting. These chats were too good to keep to ourselves, so we brought you videos of our favorite conversations.
