Three questions for Julia Maehner
Who or what inspired your interest in the jewelry and watch industry?
As a technology journalist, what primarily interests me is the digitization of our accessories, especially with watches. They are thus becoming an extension of our smartphone worn on the wrist.
What problems/aspects (please mention three) do you think are influencing the jewelry and watch industry today?
- Scarcity of resources
- Loss of individuality
What is your vision of the future for the jewelry and watch sector?
Jewelry and watches are getting more and more functional. In the not-too-distant future, we will move away from the smartphone and take to communication devices that are located directly on the body, like smartwatches.
