Is a Smartwatch Really a Watch

Postby koimaster » February 14th 2017, 9:02pm

A few months have passed since we last asked industry professionals if smartwatches are really watches. Since then the industry continues to boom and evolve with daily updates in our news feeds about the market’s latest and greatest and its winners and losers.

Whether you are in the smart, quartz, or mechanical watch market, it’s an uncertain and exciting time in the watch industry.

Last October, along with Jack Forster, editor of Hodinkee, I had the privilege to collaborate with Pierre Halimi Lacharlotte, general manager of Montres Journe America, presenting “The History of the Calendar,” a panel discussion presented by F.P. Journe and hosted by the New York Horological Society.

I asked Mr. Halimi Lacharlotte his thoughts on smartwatches, and he was happy to share his thoughts, which are bulleted into three categories.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
