Looking Back: Top Five Articles on Haute Time in 2014

If last year was a huge success for Haute Time, the magazine went bigger and better in 2014. It was, by all accounts, a winning team effort which took our readership up by 35 per cent to 103,000 readers per month. New Editor-in-Chief Arthur Touchot brought in several contributors, including Christopher Beccan, Jimmy Cosmo, and Alex Rose, whilst Haute Time added industry leaders to its curating team, including Giorgia Mondani, Christie’s Senior Vice President Reginald Brack, and Harrods Buyer Roanne Orlebar. This year, our international team, based in Dubai, London, and New York, brought regional stories and perspective to the global industry that we are in, and sat down with watch giants, old and new, from LVMH’s Jean-Claude Biver, to Panerai CEO Angelo Bonati, and celebrity watch collectors from Usain Bolt to Steve Angello. Here’s a look back at some of our best stories, as chosen by you…
