Haute Time Talks With Parmigiani CEO Davide Traxler In The Miami Design District

Parmigiani is a brand that to the real watch connoisseurs needs no introduction. It is to them that even other esteemed brands turn when they need a complicated historic piece restored. This is firmly inserted in the DNA of the company. Long before Michel Parmigiani founded the brand that bears his name, he had already obtained the reputation of being able to carry out the most complex, and sometimes even near impossible, restorations with success. On that knowledge, he built a brand of his own. It was in July 2018 that Davide Traxler was appointed CEO of Parmigiani, further strengthening the company’s Executive Committee.

5 Questions with Miami Marlins Right Fielder Giancarlo Stanton, TAG Heuer Brand Ambassador

By Roberta Naas Just a couple of days ago, we got word that Major League Base baller Giancarlo Stanton would not be able to finish out the season with the Miami Marlins due to injury. It is a devastating loss for the Marlins, as MLB’s hardest hitter has to become a sitter instead of a player. The right fielder is also a TAG Heuer brand ambassador and epitomizes the brand’s “Don’t Crack Under Pressure” campaign. Cool, calm and seemingly easy going, the 26-year-old Stanton packs so much power in his swing that he not only breaks bats, but also breaks records. In an exclusive interview he shares his thoughts on time, commitment, baseball and injuries.
