31 Luxury Watch Brands You’re Mispronouncing
When people (mainly Americans) discuss luxury watch brands from countries like Italy, Switzerland, and Germany, they are often bluffing on the pronunciation–but the native accent of the country of origin matters if accuracy is your goal! Today, we’ll cover how to correctly pronounce popular names in the world of luxury watches.
Commonly Mispronounced Luxury Watch Brands
Let’s go through 31 luxury watch brands alphabetically, and discuss the accents that contribute to how they are said.
1. A. Lange & Söhne
The GRAND LANGE 1 “25th Anniversary”
This is a German watch brand established in the 1800s and later became nationalized. After the fall of the Berlin Wall and the demise of the GDR, the great-grandson of the founder re-registered the trademark in 1990. In English, it means A. Lange and Sons. It is pronounced AH LANG-eh und ZUH-neh. Notice the ampersand is pronounced und, because it’s German, and that there’s an umlaut on the o. Sometimes, I hear it as A Lonzh and Zohn, but that’s incorrect. It’s not a French pronunciation; it’s a German pronunciation.
2. Audemars Piguet
Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Chronograph
Audemars Piguet has been family-owned since 1875. They’re probably most well known for introducing the first luxury sports watch in 1972, the still-popular Royal Oak. It is pronounced OH-deh-mahr Pi-GEH. It’s a silent s and a silent t. It’s a French pronunciation, which is shorter than some Americans or English speakers might think. The r is very quick and not really pronounced. It comes from the back of your throat, French style, not from the top of your tongue like in the English language or with a rolled r like the Italian.
3. Baume et Mercier
Paul Mercier and William Baume, co-founders
This Swiss brand was founded by the Baume brothers in 1830, and they partnered with Paul Mercier in 1918. So, how is it pronounced? BOHM Eh Mehr-SYEY. It’s quick; it’s not Mersee-ey. Again, r from your throat and silent r at the end. No English pronunciation here!
Blancpain L-Evolution Super Trofeo
Interestingly, the French name of this Swiss brand translates to “white bread.” It originally started in 1735 and has undergone many name changes, but eventually ended back up at Blancpain, which is now owned by the Swatch Group. They produce fewer than 30 watches a day, and each watch is made by one watchmaker. It is pronounced Blohn-Pehn. It’s not Blon-pohn or Blank-pain.
A fine and rare 18ct gold open face automatic pocket watch with power reserve made for Coco Chanel’s French lover, Paul Iribe
This brand, founded in 1775 in Paris, is now also owned by the Swatch Group. The well-regarded company of Breguet invented the first self-winding watch and the first wristwatch in the world. It’s pronounced BREH-geh. It is quicker then an American might say it, like Bre-GAE or Bri-GEIT, but this is incorrect. So, the t is silent, the r comes from the throat.
Breitling for Bentley Supersport
This is a Swiss watch company, but it’s pronounced as though it were German. It is not Bright-ling, it is BREIT-ling. It’s the same throat r, it’s not a frontal r.
7. Carl F. Bucherer
Manero Peripheral – first watch to house Carl F. Bucherer’s second workshop-crafted movement
This watch brand was founded by its namesake in 1888 in Lucerne, Switzerland. It is still family-owned, and one of the oldest and most long-standing Swiss watchmaking companies that is still under the control of the family. English speakers may naturally pronounce it as Carl F. Buk-her-er, but the ch in German is pronounced with a throatier quality. So, CARL F. BUCH-ehr-ehr. Again, rolled in the r in the back of your throat.
A gold Cartier watch, Fort Belvedere cufflinks and a Fort Belvedere collar clip pull together the metal elements of an outfit when worn together
Even though their first watch was named “Santos,” after Alberto Santos-Dumont, Cartier are probably most well-known for the Tank Watch and the variations of it. The design for the tank watch was inspired by the Renault tanks from the Western Front of World War I. In the US, many people pronounce it Car-di-yey; they change the t to a d and make it longer in the end, but it is actually Cahr-tyeh. The r again comes from the back of the throat, not the front, and the t is a little harder. Overall, it’s a little shorter than Car-di-yey; it’s Cahr-TYEH.
Chopard L.U.C. “Perpetual T”
This company has been owned by the German Scheufele family since 1963. It is pronounced Sho-pahr. So, the d in the end is silent; it’s not Sho-pahrd, and the r again comes from the back.
10. Frederique Constant
Frederique Constant and Cohiba – Limited Edition Watch + Humidor Set
Founded by a married couple in 1988, this brand considers itself to represent affordable luxury in watches. It is pronounced Freh-deh-RIQUE Cohn-STOHN. So again, silent t in the end and the r comes from your throat. Overall, like most French names, a bit shorter than most Americans would make them.
Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945
This Swiss luxury watch manufacturer started in 1791. It’s a prominent brand in the world of high-quality mechanical watches. It is pronounced Zhi-RAHR Peh-reh-GOH. Again, the x is silent, the Rs come from the back, and it’s a bit shorter.
12. Glashütte Original
Glashutte Original Senator Chronometer Regulator
Glashütte in German means as much as “glassworks,” and it’s actually a town in Germany that is the center of the German watchmaking industry today. Owned by the Swatch group, it’s one of the few brands that still uses their own movements. So, how is it pronounced? Glahs-HU-teh Oh-rih-gih-NAHL; u has an umlaut, so it’s Glahs-HU-teh, and they’re not “original,” but Oh-rih-gih-NAHL. It’s a German pronunciation. Again you have that r from the throat, but it’s a little longer than the French would say it.
$3 million Hublot Big Bang Watch
Established in 1980, this watchmaker is now owned by Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy–the French luxury conglomerate. The brand name directly translates to “porthole” in English. It’s pronounced Oo-bloh. So, the h is silent, the typical French way, and it’s pronounced very quickly. The h, as well as the t, are silent.
14. IWC Schaffhausen
Actually, the first part of the brand is the abbreviation for International Watch Company, and Schaffhausen is a town in Switzerland where this company is from. People there speak Swiss German, and they call the brand EE-VEH-TSEH Shof-HOU-zen.
IWC Portugieser Chronograph
The company was actually co-founded in 1868 by an American so you could make the argument that it would be called I-W-C Schaffhausen. In Germany, i is more pronounced like ee, and w is more pronounced like the English v. The sch sound in German is always a shh, never a ssk. So, it’s always Shof-HOU-zen.
This brand is arguably one of the most accomplished watchmakers in the world, with more than a thousand movements to their name. Probably, the watch they’re most famous for is the Reverso watch, and I have an original model. As a note of historical curiosity, however (and because of a quirk related to import duties of the time), it bears only the LeCoultre name.
Raphael’s vintage LeCoultre Reverso, paired with silver monkey’s fist knot cufflinks from Fort Belvedere
So, how is it pronounced? Most Americans would say Yay-ger Leh-cul-trah. However, the French pronunciation is Zhe-ZHURH(r) Lih-COULT(reh). So the first r is very silent, it comes from the throat (but it’s almost not there). The e in the end is silent as well. That being said, if you go to an American watch store and you ask for a Jaeger-LeCoultre watch using this pronunciation, they probably will look at you and ask, “You want a Yay-ger Leh-cul-trah watch?” Alternatively, you just say, “Get me a JLC,” people will usually understand that!
Longines Comet Automatic
This Swiss watchmaker was founded in 1832. Counterfeiting was an issue for Longines as early as the 1880s, and so they came up with the winged hourglass logo, which they trademarked in 1889. Today, it is the oldest unchanged, still active trademark in the world. The name is pronounced Lohn-zheen. The important part is that it’s rather short and quick.
17. Louis Moinet
Louis Moinet – a legendary watchmaker
This brand was named after the French inventor of the chronograph. Today, their watches are anything but understated, and the brand is pronounced Loo-EE MWAH-neh, with a silent s and silent t.
18. Maurice Lacroix
Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece Le Chronographe Squelette
This brand was founded in 1975 by Desco von Schulthess. It’s pronounced Moh-REISS Lah-KWAH. Silent x in the end, and r from the back–a little shorter and not as pronounced.
Montblanc Starwalker ballpoint pen
The brand name refers to the highest mountain in Europe (in France), and even though they’re originally famous for fountain pens, they’ve also started introducing luxury watches. Interestingly, despite its French-sounding name, it is actually a German brand that is now part of the Richemont Group. So, how is it pronounced? Not Mont-blank or Mont-blong. It is pronounced Mohn-blohn. It means “white mountain” translated to English.
Astronaut Wally Schirra wearing his Omega Speedmaster during training
The Omega brand is from Beil in Switzerland, and the German pronunciation would be Oh-MEH-gah. However, it’s more French, so it’s OH-meh-gah. The English might say Oh-MAY-guh, but that’s wrong. You can see that the e is slightly longer, and it’s a very French sound.
Panerai Luminor 1950 Rattrapante
This is brand is somewhat exotic, in the sense that it is an Italian brand. Here, the r comes from the front of your tongue and the end is elongated. So, it’s Pah-ne-RAI.
22. Patek Philippe
The 2015 Patek Philippe Calatrava
This Swiss luxury watch brand was founded in 1839, and the most expensive watch ever sold at auction was a Patek Philipe, for $31 million in 2019. Today, the brand is considered to be one of the most prestigious watchmakers in the world, part of the “Big Three,” or the so-called “Holy Trinity,” with Audemars Piguet and Vacheron Constantin. It is pronounced Pah-TEK Fih-LEEP. Again, shorter overall in the syllables.
Piaget Altiplano Automatic Small Seconds Date
This Swiss watchmaker was founded in 1874, and is well regarded for the thinness of their watch movements. So, how is it pronounced? PYAH-zhey(not Pee-ah-jet). The t is silent.
24. Richard Mille
Richard Mille RM-27-01 watch worn by Rafael Nadal
This Swiss watch wasn’t established until 2001, but their watches are very bold and very expensive. It’s pronounced the French way, REE-shar MEEL. It’s not pronounced Ri-shar Miyeh, or Richard Mill. It’s very soft, gentle, and French.
25. Roger Dubuis
Roger Dubuis Excalibur 42 Automatic
Founded in 1995 by its namesake and a partner, this watch brand is also bold and focuses on adrenaline, in their own words. It’s not Roh-jer Du-bois, but: Roh-ZHAY Du-BWEE. Again, r from the throat, and the s is silent in the back.
Hans Wilsdorf – The German behind Rolex
Rolex is probably the most well-recognized luxury watch brand in the world. The brand was established in England by the German, Hans Wilsdorf. At that time, most watch brands would simply use the family name of the founder, but Hans Wilsdorf had the foresight of creating a brand that was easily pronounceable around the world.
A pre-owned Rolex Datejust
It is pronounced correctly as Ro-lex–very English or American. One could also argue that because Wilsdorf was German, you could pronounce it in a German way (Hro-lex), but the more common pronunciation that you can also see on their own YouTube videos and ads is Ro-lex.
27. TAG Heuer
TAG Heuer Formula 1 Grande Date Black Dial Watch
Partially founded in 1860, TAG stands for Techniques d’Avant Garde. Heuer, on the other hand, was a different company (which bore its founder’s last name), and those companies merged together in 1985. It’s pronounced in a very German way: TAHG HOY-eh(r). The eu in German is always an oy.
Tudor is known for using the ETA movements
One could argue whether Tudor is a luxury watch brand or simply just a poor man’s Rolex, but it was also created by Hans Wilsdorf with the same idea: that it would be something that could be pronounced easily around the world. The German pronunciation would be TOO-dohr, but the English pronunciations are TOO-dur (in American English) and TYOO-dur (in British English).
29. Ulysse Nardin
Ulysse Nardin Sonata Streamline
Founded in 1846, this brand is well known for its nautical timepieces. It’s pronounced Ooh-LEESE Nahr-DAHN. Again the r from the back, and the n is silent. It’s not Yu-les-es or Yu-les, but Ooh-LEESE.
30. Vacheron Constantin
Vacheron Constantin are simple but detailed
Next to Patek Philippe and Audemars Piguet, Vacheron Constantin considered to be the third part of the “Holy Trinity” in the watchmaking world today. Founded in 1755, their Patrimony line of watches is probably their most famous. It’s pronounced Vah-sheh-ROHN Kohn-stahn-tahn.
Zenith Elite Ultra Thin Watch
This is another Swiss watch brand, founded in 1865, and the German pronunciation would be Tse-NEET, but it’s pronounced the French way, which is Zeh-NEET. So, it’s a softer z like the Americans would say it, but the th is more like a soft t; not Ze-NEETH, but Zeh-NEET.
Correctly pronouncing luxury watch brands can help you confidently converse about them, and may also help you when purchasing. Just give these brands a little practice, and you’ll sound like a luxury watch connoisseur in no time!

As its name implies, the Navitimer is a timepiece designed for navigation. This functional pilot’s watch has been around since 1952. It is the direct descendant of the Chronomat from 1942, a chronograph that also features a handy slide rule bezel. The Navitimer is like a small computer for the wrist, aiding in several different mathematical calculations. For example, a pilot can use it to determine their speed, rates of ascent and descent, and the aircraft’s fuel consumption.
Even though modern electronic instruments took over these roles long ago, the Navitimer still enjoys great popularity among pilots and celebrities. Actor and recreational pilot John Travolta combines the two and is one of Breitling’s most famous brand ambassadors.
The Most Important Navitimer References
One very popular version is the Navitimer Chronograph GMT 46, which is available in an array of dial colors with various armbands. For example, the ref. A24322121B1A1 features a black dial and a stainless steel bracelet. The 46-mm case and bidirectional rotatable slide rule bezel are also made of stainless steel.
Breitling Navitimer, ref. A24322121B1A1
At the heart of the watch is the Breitling caliber 24, a modified version of the ETA 7754. This movement has central hands for the hours, minutes, chronograph seconds, and GMT function. The chronograph’s subdials are situated at 6 and 12 o’clock, while the small seconds sits at 9. This model also comes with a date display at 3 o’clock. The Navitimer is water-resistant to 30 m (3 bar, 98 ft), which ensures that a little splash of water won’t hurt it.
Navitimer B01 Chronograph 43 mm
The Navitimer ref. AB0121211B1X1 is powered by the Breitling in-house caliber B01. At 43 mm in diameter, it is a bit larger than the standard, 41-mm models. This watch has a black dial with a white slide rule. Applied indices with glow-in-the-dark tips serve as hour markers. There are red accents on the chronograph seconds hand, as well as on the slide rule at 10, 35, and 60. The white subdials are positioned at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock with the date at 4:30. The watch is water-resistant to 30 m (3 bar, 98 ft) and comes on a black leather strap with white stitching.
Breitling Navitimer, ref. AB0121211B1X1
If you’d prefer a white dial with black subdials, you should take a closer look at the reference AB0121211G1A1. This version also comes with a stainless steel bracelet. Another variant of the 43-mm Navitimer bears the reference number UB0121211F1P2. This watch is identical to the other two references from a technological perspective but has some flashy details in 18-karat rose gold, including the bezel, the indices, and the hands.
Navitimer B03 Chronograph Rattrapante 45
In 2017, Breitling introduced the B03 Chronograph with split-seconds functionality (rattrapante in French). This elaborate complication of the caliber B03 features two superimposed chronograph hands that can measure elapsed times independently of one another.
Reference AB03102A1F1P2 is made of stainless steel and has a diameter of 45 mm. The dial in the color “stratos gray” has applied line indices with luminescent ends. The totalizers at 3, 6, and 9 are black, posing a subtle contrast to the gray dial. You’ll find understated red accents on the dial scales and the stop-seconds hand. The rattrapante hand is lacquered completely in red. This watch comes on a black leather strap with white stitching.
Navitimer Reference 806: 1959 Re-Edition
Breitling Navitimer, ref. AB0910371B1X1
Perhaps one of the most interesting Navitimers is the reference AB0910371B1X1. Behind that cryptic string of numbers and letters lies a perfect facsimile of the Navitimer 806, which Breitling first introduced in 1959. The case is made of stainless steel and – just like the vintage model – is 41 mm in diameter. Both the dial and subdials are black – only the slide rule is white. The Arabic numerals are made of artificially aged SuperLuminova applied directly on the dial. The hand-wound mechanical caliber B09 completes the watch.
About the Calibers and Breitling’s In-House Movements
The featured caliber has a major influence on the price of a Navitimer. Models with certain calibers are in higher demand than others and generally a lot more expensive. In the early models starting from 1952, Breitling used manual movements from Swiss suppliers. The first reference, the 806, was usually outfitted with the well known Venus 178, for example. This caliber also appears in other models like the Top Time. Over the decades, hand-wound ETA movements also came into play, the most famous of which are the Valjoux 72 and the 7740. The latter was responsible for the first Navitimer with a date function.
In the late 1960s, Breitling introduced the automatic Navitimer. It runs on the famed Chronomatic caliber.This movement, developed by Willy Breitling, Jack Heuer, Büren, and watchmaker Gérald Dubois, features an incorporated chronograph module. The 1990s saw the addition of the popular Valjoux 77 family of automatic movements.
Breitling caliber B01
In 2009, everything changed regarding the movement supply chain. That’s when Breitling presented their first in-house caliber under the name B01. Since then, they haven’t stopped developing different takes on the movement. Over the years, Breitling has come out with variations including B04 (GMT function), B05 (world time function), and the manual caliber B09, as seen in the 806 Re-Edition. The chronographs make use of a column wheel with vertical coupling. The B02 is a three-hand movement based on the Tudor MT5612. The movements are manufactured in the Breitling Chronometrie in the Swiss city of La Chaux-de-Fonds. All calibers have a power reserve of approx. 70 hours and come with chronometer certification from COSC (Contrôle officiel suisse des chronomètres).
The Navitimer 8 line followed in 2018. For this watch collection, the company abandoned the distinctive slide rule bezel. The result is a tidier dial that gives these Navitimers a more elegant overall appearance. In addition to chronographs with the in-house caliber B01, this line includes three-hand watches, world time watches, and day-date variants, all powered by trusted ETA calibers. In 2020, Breitling added three-hand models with a diameter of only 35 mm to their repertoire. These Navitimers are available in various material and color combos and are primarily geared toward women.
Price and Performance
The performance of any given Breitling Navitimer strongly depends on the reference. Rare models – in particular those in the vintage category – show a significant increase in value compared to their original sales price. However, it’s uncertain whether the same will apply to current models. In any case, it’s safe to say that Navitimer prices are relatively stable. When purchasing, you can look for low-priced unworn specimens, or keep an eye out for a slightly used watch in like-new condition. If you’re considering a future resale, it would be wise to purchase a full set, complete with accessories and the corresponding papers.
Depending on the model and adequate maintenance, you can generally count on a decent resale price, even after a few years of wear. Like many commodities, watches are also subject to the forces of supply and demand, so limited editions are typically more lucrative due to their rarity.
Performance Breitling Navitimer, ref. AB0910371B1X1
One example is the 806 (ref. AB0910371B1X1), which had a limited production run of 1,959 pieces. In mint condition, it sells for around $8,300 on Chrono24 (or approximately $7,100 used, see graphic). This model has a list price of $8,600. Although that unworn price clearly doesn’t represent an increase in value, it’s only around 3% lower than the suggested retail price. To compare: The Navitimer B01 Chronograph 46 with reference number AB0127211B1P1 costs $8,680 USD from Breitling. On Chrono24, you can buy this model in mint condition for as little as $6,300 USD – that’s almost 27% savings.
Prices for the Navitimer 1 and GMT 46
The Navitimer 1 Chronograph 41 with a blue dial and black leather strap (ref. A13324121C1X1) sells on Chrono24 for about $4,500 or roughly 27% lower than its official list price of $6,200. The Chrono24 price for a mint-condition Navitimer Chronograph GMT 46 with reference number A24322121B1A1 on a stainless steel bracelet is $5,000. Breitling’s recommended price is $7,480, which amounts to a difference of over 30%.
What the Navitimer B03 Rattrapante Costs
The price for an unworn B03 Chronograph Rattrapante 45 (ref. AB03102A1F1P2) lies around $10,300 (list: $11,750). The reference RB0311E61F1P1, limited to only 250 pieces, is technically identical but has a rose gold case. The combination of limited availability and luxury materials brings the cost up to approx. $27,500 new. You can find the same watch on Chrono24 for around $6,800 below the list price.
For Collectors: Vintage Navitimers
As previously mentioned, Breitling used basic movements from various Swiss suppliers up until 2009. The price for an early Navitimer often depends on the movement within. Collectors and enthusiasts are particularly interested in the very early models from the 1950s and 60s, including reference 806. Most of these watches run on the Venus 178 caliber or the rare Valjoux 72. Prices range from $3,400 to $11,500, depending on the movement, condition, and whether original accessories are included. If you’re interested in an early Navitimer with an automatic caliber, you should keep an eye out for the Chronomatic variants from the 1960s and 70s. You’ll find prices for these watches between around $2,800 and $11,300.
Navitimer Montbrillant Datora
The Navitimer Montbrillant Datora with reference A21330 is one of the neo-vintage models. It is fitted with the Breitling caliber 21 (based on the ETA 7751) and differs from the standard models in some respects. Most notably, it features a day-date display at 12 o’clock and an additional hand on the dial for the date display. If you’d like to purchase this watch used, be prepared to spend around $4,000.

How to pronounce the names of watch manufactories correctly
Often watch gourmets fondly call Rolex ‘Rollies’, and Patek Philippe – ‘Patties’.Surprisingly, there is an audio archive of the correct pronunciation of the name of the watch brand. The pioneers in this matter were the inhabitants of Canada. They not only teach how to furnish a home, but also explain how to pronounce the names of European watch brands correctly.
After listening to short videos, many discover a new sound range. Perhaps they are overly demanding. Indeed, in order to correctly pronounce A. Lange & Sohne , you need to know the specifics of German phonetics.Of course, this information is a little funny. After all, most of us know very well how to say Rolex .

- Longines – how to pronounce in Russian
- Longines name history
- Interesting facts about the logo and emblem
Longines, Longines, Logines, Longyne, Lozhinet – these are the variations of the famous Swiss watch brand that are most common among Russian speakers.And after all, many do not even think that they pronounce and write the brand name incorrectly. And yet, Longines watches – what is the correct pronunciation of the name? Where did it come from? And what does the logo mean? You will find the answers in the article from KronosTime.
Longines – how to pronounce in Russian
It is believed that the difficulty with Longines watches, as the name of the brand is pronounced, is caused by a complex French grammar, the rules of which are not easy for everyone to understand.English is taught in schools, and we are used to reading brand names in English without going into the origin of the name.
It turns out that in the word “Longines” the ending “es” is not pronounced. When pronouncing the letter “g”, it is replaced by a soft sound “g”, and as a result, the correct name of the Swiss watch brand is obtained – “Long’zhin”.
Longines name history
Why did the brand become Longines? The factory is located in the town of Saint-Imier, in 1867 it was an ordinary watch company, the owners of which decided to take the company to a new level.They began to expand, for the construction of a watch factory, Ernest Francillon acquired a land plot on the right bank of the Suze River. This place was called Les Longines, which translates as “oblong meadows”. Subsequently, according to the name of the area, the factory received a new name (the former was “Comptoir Raiguel Jeune and Cie”).
Interesting facts about the logo and emblem
Since the establishment of the official Longines factory, all products have been marked with the emblem: the hourglass with wings.The logo was officially registered in 1889 and was a guarantor of confirmation of the authenticity of wristwatches and mechanisms, preventing the appearance of counterfeits. Since that time, the logo has undergone dozens of transformations.
The earliest version (1860) had pronounced wing bends on top, and the tips looked clearly downward. In the period from 1867 to 1889, designers also turned to this technique. In 1900-1941, the creators settled on an emblem with only one inscription, without any graphic elements.
In 1942, the winged hourglass returned to the logo, and has not disappeared from there since.

90,000 Applications: The latest news from Russia and the world – Kommersant Style (96969)
At the end of September, the second line of the glorious GUM received guests of the evening “World records with Breitling”.The famous Russian traveler Fyodor Konyukhov was the guiding (almost literally) star of the event. Near the entrance to the multi-brand watch and jewelry store Bosco di Ciliegi Sublime, an extensive hospitable cockpit was equipped, unlike an aircraft or ship’s cockpit, equipped with a bar counter, portable display cases with Breitling watches, as well as a small stage.
Fyodor Konyukhov, his son and faithful assistant Oscar, as well as the head of Breitling Russia Arsen Balayan climbed on it in due time.All those gathered on the stage made fiery speeches, glorifying Breitling watches, in whose professional accuracy and honesty, however, no one ever doubted. On the arm of the protagonist of the event was the second model of the Emegency Breitling series, with which he performed another feat.
Fyodor Konyukhov held a glass of champagne in one hand, and a pen in the other. He signed for those who wish, of which there were many, his new book – “My path to the truth. Diaries of a lonely traveler 2005-2015”.Fyodor Konyukhov, dressed not in a dashing pilot’s suit, not in a polar explorer’s down jacket and not in a diver’s spacesuit, but in an ordinary tuxedo, is not at all peculiar to revel in social life. But his son Oscar always helps him to overcome the difficulties of secular communication.

Father and son told about the latest feat.It was a Morton hot air balloon trip around the globe. The flight, which began and ended in Australia, is recognized as a record one: it lasted two days less than a similar circumnavigation of the American Steve Fossett. In addition, Konyukhov, unlike his overseas rival, managed to land at the same airfield from which he started.
Let’s call the record numbers as soon as possible: so, the flight at an altitude of 11 thousand meters lasted 11 days, 5 hours and 11 minutes, or 269 hours and 11 minutes.Of course, the wind, thunderstorms, and also the trouble with the fuel cylinder that exploded so inappropriately (because of this, the heating in the basket completely disappeared) awaited our hero on his romantic path. But Fyodor Konyukhov is always rescued by fate or higher powers, it happened this time too: the flight was completed on July 28.
And exactly two months later, on September 28, the Swiss watch brand Breitling, whose motto is “Tools for Professionals”, opened an exhibition of its watches in GUM. “World records with Breitling” can be viewed until the end of October.
It was in honor of this exhibition that the outstanding Russian navigator and aeronaut, conqueror of snows and lord of ice floes, emperor of mountain peaks and ruler of dunes Fyodor Konyukhov came to GUM. He managed to accomplish many of his feats without a Breitling watch on his wrist, but now the Emergency model (it is equipped with an antenna that can be pulled out – and the Ministry of Emergencies of any country will fly to the rescue) will no longer let our compatriot go on a solo voyage.
Fyodor Konyukhov flew around the Earth in a Morton balloon in a record short time: 11 days 5 hours 11 minutes, or 269 hours 11 minutes

I am in “Paris” on business, urgently!
Contrary to the assertion of the famous humorist that a Russian is simply not able to seriously pronounce this phrase, most of the wealthy residents of Krasnoyarsk said it more than once or twice.True, for them “Paris” is the most luxurious store in the city.
Contrary to the well-known humorist’s assertion that a Russian is simply not able to seriously pronounce this phrase, most of the wealthy residents of Krasnoyarsk said it more than once or twice. True, for them “Paris” is the most luxurious store in the city.
A rare Krasnoyarsk does not know a red and white building located on Prospekt Mira with a model of the Eiffel Tower above the entrance. Salon “Paris” opened in 1995 and became the first retail outlet in the city specializing in expensive accessories and watches.At first it was a diversified store that sold furniture, jewelry, accessories, tableware and, to some extent, watches. Gradually, watches replaced other goods, and today they occupy most of the area, giving up to 70% of the turnover. Until 1997, when another Swiss watch store was opened in the city, Paris remained a monopolist.
But to this day, despite the presence of two competitors, it remains the most famous and popular shopping place for wealthy residents of Krasnoyarsk.Paris houses brands such as Du Bois, Fendi, Frederique Constant, Gucci, Longines, Maurice Lacroix, Nina Ricci, Omega, Perrelet, Rado, Raymond Weil, Roamer, Rotary, Ulysse Nardin and Versace. Breitling and Zenith will be added to the assortment this fall. In addition to clocks, expensive dishes and various accessories are sold on 300 meters of the store’s area. The clock is located on both floors of the salon. Moreover, on the lower floor there are relatively cheap brands and large-sized watches, and on the second floor there are more expensive brands.
The great popularity of the salon is explained not only by the length of service and well-chosen assortment, but also by powerful advertising support. New billboards and banners of “Paris” are installed in the city all year round, and the Ulysse Nardin billboard located next to the salon is the largest billboard with an advertisement for watches in Krasnoyarsk. In addition to outdoor advertising, local magazines and television are actively used, where the emphasis is not on advertising brands, but on promoting the store as such. The interior design of “Paris” was developed and executed completely independently, only the equipment was purchased from one of the Italian firms.This became possible due to the fact that in the structure of the holding, which includes the salon, there are companies specializing in the sale of luxury furniture and interior design.
Working with an expensive product requires highly qualified personnel, therefore training of employees in the salon is considered one of the priority areas of activity. As a result of training and a well-thought-out incentive and motivation system, sales assistants not only work with customers, but also participate in all aspects of the store’s activities: ordering goods, recruiting new employees, etc.“Many customers, after going through the shops of competitors, return and shop in Paris,” says the director of the salon Igor Dryanykh. “And not because ours is cheaper, but because they like the service and the qualifications of the sellers more.”
