29 01 2016

A week after I spoke at the Webwinkel Vakdagen 2016 event in Utrecht, the Netherlands, I have been invited by NetComm Suisse, the Swiss counterpart of the Thuiswinkel Organisatie to speak during their event: e-Commerce and Digital meet Luxury Watches on Thursday February 2th, 2016 in Geneva, Switzerland.

Alon Ben Josep speaking at Netcomme Suisse event in Geneva

NetComm Suisse enables their members to build a strong community of e-Commerce operators. Through networking events, training, institutional relations and research into the digital market, the organization enables greater consumer confidence in e-Commerce and greater success for operators in the industry. They also engage proactively with the media and international institutions, providing information, concrete data and a voice for the wider industry, seeking above all to help build a more engaged and successful future for the Swiss eCommerce sector.

On February 25th, 2016 NetComm Suisse in collaboration with Fongit will host the “e-Commerce and Digital meet Luxury Watches” event. The event will look at the latest trends in digital and e-Commerce for luxury jewellery and watches industry. In this domain our speakers will share knowledge on:

  • Digital innovation, smartwatches, wearable jewellery devices
  • e-Commerce for the luxury industry
  • Online counterfeiting and digital reputation
  • Digital influence in purchase decisions
  • Start-ups to help solving industry problems

An increasing number of consumers is turning to the internet to get their purchase decision. In addition to that, upwards of 70% of people in Europe have shopped online, amounting to some 247 million consumers, with commerce between countries continuing to grow. As regards the luxury sector, e-Commerce represents an excellent opportunity for the industry, including the smartwatch sector, to open itself up to a global market filled with internet- savvy consumers, add this to Switzerland’s long history of watchmaking, perfectly blending a spirit of artisanship plus innovation, and the opportunities in this particular brand of digital innovation are clear to see.

As you might know I love to speak about my passions: fine watches, diamond jewelry and eCommerce. I am humbled that Netcomme Suisse has heard about me and booked me to speak during this event in Geneva next month. Together with managers from the Swiss luxury industry, companies like: Audemars Piguet, Baume & Mercier, Richemont, I will speak about my experiences in this industry we have built up with Ace Jewelers. I am also very curious to hear what experts from Facebook, eBooster and Deloitte, attending as speakers during this event have to share.

On that day I will travel from Amsterdam to Geneva and at 16.55 hours I will have the honor to speak about the topic: “Digital influence in offline purchase decisions.”

My Father, The Inspirator

17 12 2013

My father, David Ben Joseph, has always been (and still is every day) a true inspirator to me. He does not only inspires me, but also our family (members), our extended family (the team) at Ace Jewelers, our customers and his friends, but apparently also the international chief editor of 00/24 Watch World magazines. Apparently my dad inspired him so much during and even a while after an interview they did, the editor wrote a column about it:

David Ben Joseph

Kinderspel
by Lex Stolk

“Ik verlaat juwelier Ace & Spyer aan het Amsterdamse Koningsplein met knagende ambivalentie. Mijn gesprek met eigenaar David Ben Joseph was amicaal, enthousiasmerend en verhelderend. Tot zover niets tweeslachtigs. Toch kauwen mijn hersenen op een flard uit het gesprek dat hardnekkig op de voorgrond van mijn gedachten blijft. Wat mijn denken vasthoudt, is het verhaal van David dat hij als kleine jongen zijn horloge keer op keer uitelkaar haalde. Hij was zo gefascineerd
door het feit dat een verzameling radertjes, asjes en veertjes zo nauwkeurig de tijd kon weergeven, dat hij op onderzoek ging. Hij maakte de kast open, aanschouwde het ‘geheim’ en dook vervolgens nog verder in het avontuur door het tikkende mechaniek te demonteren om het maar beter te kunnen doorgronden. Keer op keer herhaalde hij die handeling totdat het in- en uit elkaar zetten van het uurwerkje uiteindelijk feilloos verliep.

Uiteindelijk onthulde hij het geheim van zijn horloge zonder de betovering te verbreken. Zijn kinderspel leidde ten slotte tot een eigen zaak met vele mechanische tophorloges. Tijdens het verhaal van David denk ik aan mijn eigen kind van twaalf en aan vele andere kinderen die niet zoveel anders zullen zijn als de jonge onderzoeker David Ben Joseph. Nieuwsgierige geesten die zichzelf en de wereld ontdekken en spelenderwijs hun talenten ontplooien. Maar deze gretige onderzoekers leven in een heel andere wereld, een elektronische wereld. De horlogemakers van morgen spelen met Nintendo’s in plaats van Pontiacs. Spelcomputers die uit brandende belangstelling worden geopend, bieden een teleurstellende aanblik van printplaatjes. Inspirerende fijnmechanica is ver te zoeken in het leven van alledag. Dat moet anders. Ouders aller landen geeft uw kinderen een mechanisch horloge! Onthoud uw kinderen de geneugten van technische verwondering niet. Ik heb mijn zoon inmiddels een horloge gegeven waarin een langzaam tikkend en robuust Unitas- handopwinduurwerk ligt verscholen. Kijken wat er gebeurt. Het is een experiment. Een klein offer misschien wel, want ruwe vingers en delicate mechanica zijn geen gelukkige combinatie.

Omdat ik niet kan verlangen dat andere ouders ook offers brengen, doe ik ook nog een oproep aan de uurwerkfabrikanten van deze wereld: ETA, Sellita, Seiko, Miyota en anderen, deel op lagere scholen uurwerken uit om te betoveren en te inspireren.”
