Smaller sizes driven by the increasing popularity of vintage, trendspotter says.

Among the foremost trends from Baselworld 2016 is the downsizing of luxury watches, which is being fueled by the rising popularity of vintage, writes Arthur Touchot, the European editor of Hodinkee, for CNN.

Touchot observes that the “most exciting pieces were definitely those which fit under the cuff,” explaining that 42-45mm watches are being eschewed in favor of the 36-39mm size range.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
