Dubai Watch Week: Horology Forum; Philippe Dufour and The Next Generation

Nov 20, 2023,03:53 AM

Philippe Dufour, the established watchmaker needs no introduction.  But Monsieur Dufour's daughter, Daniela Dufour, is the next generation and the future face of her father's legacy.  Daniela Dufour has completed making her first watch, but is she ready to take on clients and run the business?  Will the Dufour legacy survive?  Watch this video and it seems that the Dufour legacy is in good hands - and time will tell if the brand will survive.  

This is a big one and the room was packed.  Definitely watch this one!

All posts about Dubai Watch Week are appropriate! I was going to put on the Max Busser story after I was able to watch it again - can you believe it? I got into that one late! I normally say I'm a huge fan - but how can a fan of Max be late to one of his ...

I think she should start making a different piece independent from her father , the dufours are asking more than half a mil chf for a new simplicity at the moment and her starting on that might not be great in the long run.. Highly likely she wouldn’t hav... 

I'm sure she has considered all the possibilities...

We shall see what she decides to do - but she didn't make the decision to be a watchmaker lightly.
