Nicholas G. Hayek, Champion of the Swiss Watch Industry and Founder of Swatch Dies

2010 June 29

Nicholas G. Hayek was often referred to as the man who saved the Swiss watch industry. By consolidating some of the most important brands and founding Swatch to marry mass production with Swiss quality manufacturing he thwarted the negative effects that the advent of inexpensive, Japanese quartz watches were having on the Swiss manufacturers. Mr. Hayek was 82 on June 28th, when he died suddenly. His larger-than-life personality and hands-on business attitude will surely be missed by his colleagues.

Michele Watches Limited and Special Collections

2010 March 03

Variety is the spice of life. Michele watches have embraced this proverb with great enthusiasm! Their watch bands - for example - draw from a palette of hundred of colors and dozens of materials. On the straps, a specialized mechanism allows the owner to swap them easily using only their fingers making it possible to vary the style of your watch as often as you change your outfit. The watches themselves are quite diverse even though each one captures the signature Michele style. For a limited time, Michele will offer an even bigger selection of glamorous and exciting watches in their limited and special collections.
