Baselworld 2017: Interview with Walter von Känel, President Longines

In the so called “middle-price segment” Longines sets the tone. There is no other watch brand performing so strong around the globe! The ongoing success of Longines is a result of its presidents hard and tireless work.

Walter von Känel knows exactly what his markets need. He has his ears close by the retailers and the clients of Longines. So it is for sure no coincidence that Walter von Känel developed Longines to be a brand today making 1,5 billion Swiss Francs turnover.

Therefore Longines ranks among to the small group of watch manufacturers who generate a turn-over greater than one billion Swiss Francs. 

Also this year the Longines watches look gorgeous and they are made in a quality for a price that definitely astonishes me every year again. I will show you tons of novelties (not only the ones from Longines) in the next days and weeks. Together with my comments and remarks you will then even better understand what I mean …

Today I want to share my interview with my friend Walter with you. Walter is someone I hold in high esteem, indeed he is a very charismatic leadership personality.

Walter von Känel simply is unique!
