If you say that matters have further degraded with Kern's successor, I take your word for it.
I guess I just found the transition from Bluemlein to Kern brutal, with a loss of substance along the way.
Now, granted, everyone cannot be Guenter Bluemlein. And it's not just limited to IWC: when given a choice, Richemont will more often than not appoint a marketeer rather than an industrialist as CEO of their brands. Making a quick buck and bumping up sales seem to be the motto, under the shareholder's pressure of Johan Rupert.
