After the welcoming address of Simon de Burton, FT specialist author, it was Kim-Eva Wempe’s turn. With regard to the company’s history, she said: “When I started in '82 we had three watchmakers. Now there are 124 people in the watch service.  The evening continued with a lively panel discussion: the experts Paul David Maudsley (watch specialist at the auction house Phillips), Ahmed Rahman (watch collector), Simon de Burton (specialized journalist), Megan Young (watchmaker at Wempe London) and Kim-Eva Wempe discussed the development of the watch market. The sometimes very passionate debate included all motivations and backgrounds that are involved in buying a luxury watch. Is it worthwhile to buy a coveted vintage icon or is a modern investment item the better choice? The audience was invited to participate in the talk with questions and certainly returned home with sound advice.
