On the occasion of Jaeger-LeCoultre participating in the 70th Mostra Film Festival in Venice in Italy I had the chance to talk to Daniel Riedo.
Yes, it took me a while to get Daniel Riedo for this first exclusive interview. Finally we made it!
Of course you all know that Jérôme Lambert left Jaeger-LeCoultre to become the new CEO of Montblanc some months ago. What a challenge for my friend Jérôme!
His successor Daniel Riedo joined the Richemont Group two years ago coming from the Rolex Group, where he worked for more then 12 years for Rolex and Tudor.
The first step of Daniels’ career at Jaeger-LeCoultre was to be in charge of the entire production. The second step was to become the CEO. What a lucky guy! I am really jealous! That´s like a dream come true for a watch aficionado.
This was by the way the first thing I said to Daniel in my interview. I do now invite you to listen to it…

This is the Jaeger-LeCoultre Daniel Riedo is wearing today. Once again: What a luck guy!
