Developed by the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie And a participatory platform for watch brands, Watch Live is set to become the all-round, must-have app that will support sales staff on the floor in their day-to-day contact with customers.

Created by the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie, FHH Academy is aimed first and foremost at professional sales staff, to help them improve their understanding of the industry and, in doing so, boost their performance on the retail floor.

The objective? Increase the desirability of Haute Horlogerie.

The launch coincided with the official appointment of Mr. Alexander Schmiedt as Regional Delegate for the FHH. Alexander is also Regional Director for Vacheron Constantin in the Middle East.Alexander will become the point of contact for all FHH activities and will closely collaborate with the partner-brands. He will develop new initiatives in the coming year to further increase values and knowledge of fine watchmaking in the region.
