KUALA LUMPUR (Aug 7): What makes Rado a master of materials? During a whirlwind visit to Malaysia recently, the chief executive officer of Swiss watch company Adrian Bosshard told us all about its approach to metallurgy that defines its DNA as a master of materials, the space-age building blocks that make up its timepieces and how his previous career as a motorcycle racer informs his leadership of the Lengnau-based manufacture. A passionate fan of the brand and of the watch industry in general, this week’s cover personality says, “I feel like I have never worked a day in my life. I have only spent time enjoying myself in an industry that I love.”
Also in watchmaking — we take a look at Swiss Watch’s new brand Reservoir, which boasts French designs with Swiss-powered mechanics, and a peek at Rolex’s A Watch Born to Explore exhibition in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur.
