Interview with Peter Stas, Co-Owner of Frédérique Constant and Alpina @ Baselworld 2015

Peter Stas presented a connected watch with Frédérique Constant and Alpina. I asked him how the general interest was so far. And yes, it seems that he bet on the right horse…

 

Besides all mechanical, technical innovations and new watches at Baselworld 2015 the smart or connected watch attracted a lot of attention. Peter Stas is among the very first to have ready product that he will deliver already in July to the markets.

In my interview Peter gave me some insights about his connected watch and about the performance of his two brands Frédérique Constant and Alpina

    I saw the watch in person and played with it at FC’s booth. It’s an attractive watch, but 5 years from now, the Smartwatch functionality will be rendered useless. It’s a neat gadget, to be sure, but I don’t see the long term value proposition in a Swiss watch.

    I have enough problems dealing with my desktop computer and smart phone. I don’t need more headaches in dealing with a smart watch as well. I will stay with the traditional watch, thank-you. For those of you that feel you need to have a smart watch ,go ahead and buy one and I wish you all the best. Oh I just remembered that I have a Smart Television as well , lol,now that I like .
