Jérôme and I talked about the latest developments concerning the Montblanc e-strap and the watch business of the brand. Click on “read more” to listen to the my interviews.

Therefore he was the first within the Swiss watch industry to combine the world of smartphones with the world of classical watchmaking without one interfering the other world.
