Walter von Kaenel, President Longines

What you will hear when you listen to this interview is a lesson in selling watches. Who buys what and where? Walter von Känel will tell you!

 

With an estimated turnover of 1,5 billion Swiss Francs Longines ranks among the top five in the Swiss watch industry. This success is not a coincidence, but the result of the tireless work of ultra-charismatic Walter von Känel and his entire team.
