Baselworld 2013 … I just met Walter von Känel the President of Longines

I know Walter von Känel for many years now and I have to tell you he is one of real movers and shakers of this industry. Discover the Longines novelties and listen to my interview …

Longines rules the middle price range! In-between 900 and 3000 Swiss Francs ex factory no one else can do better. In fact everyone else in this entire Swiss watch industry is unable to hold a candle to …

Walter von Känel works hard and he seldom does something wrong. With all his years of experience it was so interesting to talk with him about a segment that so often is almost forgotten, because everyone concentrates on the luxury sector. Longines meanwhile makes a turnover of more than 1 billion Swiss Francs and the brand still grows.

Guys take some time and listen carefully; I promise this interview is really thrilling and very interesting. Walter von Känel is really a mover and shaker 🙂

    Hi Alexander,

    Found your interview really interesting, only one thing I haven’t recognized:
    on about 12m30s mr von Känel speaks about some “square”(?) model made fot Italian market and he quotes another one a little bit after.
    Could you tell me of which models he spoke about?

    Thank you.

    An interesting interview. As for the collection shown the Heritage 1938 is my favorite. Not shown but I think spoken of is the telemeter which for some of us is of interest. I also want to say I like the A7 and the Retrograde.

    Cheers!
