New York, NY (PRWEB) April 10, 2012
Haute Time, the ultimate resource for luxury timepiece aficionados, presents exclusive video content behind top-tier watch brands from all over the world. Haute Living Co-publisher and Haute Time curator Seth Semilof got an exclusive video interview with CEO Michele Sofisti to discuss the legendary Sowind Group’s heritage and what’s on the horizon.
“As known since last summer, the PPR Group bought the majority of the Sowind Group,” reaffirmed Sofisti. This move now places the CEO in charge of running the brands Girard-Perregaux, JeanRichard and Gucci Timepieces. The acquisition of such a powerful partner places them at the forefront of the luxury watch industry.
According to Sofisti, the brand now has many programs in the works, including the introduction of new products and the addition of legendary watchmaker Dominique Loiseau to its manufacturing team. “We are talking about a brand that has been around for 221 years,” Sofisti added. “This brand has a serious heritage and with our recent collaboration with Dominique, this is going to hopefully show our growth for the future.”
A second addition to the Sowind Group also shows much promise. Hublot’s former U.S Sales Director Michael Margolis has been appointed as North American President of the Sowind Group. “Mike is a remarkable individual, with true passion for the craft,” said Sofisti. “We are very glad to have him on board to lead the U.S. team into this new phase of the brand and are sure that together we will be very successful.”
Gaining an inside look at the industry’s star timepieces directly from the company CEOs demonstrates the respect and passion Haute Time reserves for luxury watches and their corresponding brands.
