Dear partners and friends of MeisterSinger,

We hope that you all are doing fine and are getting ready to fuel up during this coming summer holiday in order to be full of energy for the remaining part of 2016.

With this newsletter we want to inform you about some practical and other business matters. 

Business in first half of 2016

We don’t tell you anything new when we say that we are living in very challenging times. The Swiss watch industry dropped in total 10% over the first 6 months of 2016. Source www.fhs.ch – watch statistics. Reduction of working hours at Richemont group brands, expected layoffs after summer holidays at several brands and the first brands who are getting out of business. However there are still brands which are doing quite well, mainly German and happily or better said naturally we are one of them…… up to now with a plus of 10% so far this year. Reason; we are offering something unique and authentic for quiet affordable prices. Consumers worldwide are looking either for the big names and/or for unique products like MeisterSinger which have a philosophy and a story to tell and emphasis the natural need of consumers to distinguish themselves from others.

Top 20 first half year 2016

Hereby you receive our worldwide Top 20 in turnover over the first half of 2016. You can see that the Phanero has entered this Top 20 with several dial variations in high rankings. The sell in, but also sell out of this Basel 2016 novelty is extremely good. Also the new Circularis Automatic enters this Top 20 list same as the Salthora Meta Transparent. A confirmation from what we already saw during Basel; very well accepted 2016 novelties. This of course makes us happy and proud!


Wall/deskclocks

In our newsletter some weeks ago we’ve already informed you about this, but to be sure again our remark about the wall and desk clocks:

The wall clocks WU01 and WU02 are completely sold out and will not be in the collection any longer.

The desk clocks WU18 and WU18B are still available, however in small quantities and will be out of stock and also out of collection by autumn.

We are developing alternatives for these Wall and Desk clocks and will inform you in autumn about this. To warn you upfront: there will be a period where no clocks will be available.

Summer Holiday

As you know it from the last years, our offices will be open during all summer. Of course in certain periods with limited staff, but there will always be somebody to help you.
The only department which will be closed is our watchmaking department; they will be closed from July 18th till August 01st. In advance our apologizes for any inconvenience caused by this.


That it’s for now

Rest us only to wish you a wonderful summer period with enjoyable times with your family, lots of sun and rest to go with full energy at full speed into the rest of the year!

 

Take care and keep in touch.

Warmest regards,

 

 

   
Manfred Brassler   Matthias Schenkel
