Historically the 'juicy part' of the watch industry was entitled to the "Generational Echelon"- or offspring with familial roots. On this panel we explore nepotism vs people of non-watch related backgrounds who chanced upon the industry through unforeseen series of events.

A significant portion of people who have ended up in the watch industry was through a series of unforeseen events. Contrast this to family run entities that have been in the industry for generations. Is there a hoity toity divide categorized by ‘echelon’ mentality? Let’s discuss how this is impacting the composition of the watch industry, especially now what with the ease in which dissemination of information is taking place and we observe an upsurge of self-taught watch figures.
