Baselworld 2014: Interview with Walter von Känel, CEO Longines

Today Longines ranks among the very big players of the industry. Only a few surpassed the magic boundary of one billion CHF turn-over. Already years ago Walter von Känel started literally to conquer the segment he today is so successful in.

Walter von Känel belongs to those managers of the Swiss Watch Industry who have an incredible curriculum vitae. It is in fact hard to compete with his experience in the industry, he knows everyone and everything. And what counts most is that Mr. von Känel is always ahead of time, when it comes to define new styles and sizes of watches. With all the information sources he has and with his world wide network there is nothing he can not estimate. For his competitors life is not easy, since whatever they might do, he and Longines can do it better and for a better price.
