WATCH CURATOR '18 147 watches under scrutiny Just this once, this special edition of Watch Curator 2018 will devote the majority of its pages to... watches! They are, after all, front and centre of the watch industry’s concerns. We have made what is unavoidably a subjective selection from the parade of products launched this year, but we believe it to be representative of watch output as a whole. It’s not about presenting the watches that appeal the most to us personally, or about handing out symbolic prizes. In Watch Curator 2018, we attempt to map out the landscape of current watch production, so that our readers can draw their own conclusions about the future of traditional watchmaking. Clearly, there are some phenomena that are impossible to ignore. As you might have guessed, the vintage wave continues to sweep everything before it (the Last Word to Start, at the end of the magazine, has more to say on this). Not a single watch category is spared. This formal return to the golden age of the tool watch is, in a way, a form of reassurance in the face of an increasingly inscrutable future. The watch industry, afraid of impending obsolescence, is turning to the past for resources. 38
