A Time To Be Jolly

Patric Zingg, managing director of Graham Watches, talks about the festive season and his latest ‘Merry’ creation.

Patric has been involved in the watch industry for 20 years. Having spent more than 10 years in the US, he is now back in Switzerland.  A man of many hats, his interests include art, design and music, which inspire him in developing new timepieces, such as the Chronofighter Vintage Nose Art limited edition.

You lived in the US. Have you adopted any of their traditional Christmas habits or customs?

American people are very festive and enthusiastic about Christmas. As their former president Calvin Coolidge used to say: “Christmas is not a time or a season, but a state of mind.” I celebrate Christmas; it is a beautiful and magical season for the kids in us.

How would you describe the ‘Merry’ Nose Art limited edition to someone who’s not in the know?

Free spirited, bold and festive with a touch of retro-glamour. And quite exclusive since only 25 pieces were produced.

So, what does that watch mean to you personally?

A fun creative interpretation of the holiday season. But, also, a unique form of expression for the lucky few.

How do you celebrate Christmas?

By gaining weight – dining parties with friends and family are happening daily. But it is also the time of the year where one should look back and make a self-assessment to improve.

What are your best Christmas memories and traditions?

The excitement, happiness, sparks in the eyes of my kids are definitely great memories.

Which song could be linked to Merry?
