The future of watch design — Davide Cerrato, Managing Director of Montblanc watches

July 18, 2019

Davide Cerrato is the Managing Director of Montblanc Watches and one of the most fascinating figures in modern watchmaking. 

In a special episode recorded down at Hound Lodge on the Goodwood estate — Montblanc, of course, are the official timekeepers for Goodwood’s Festival of Speed — Davide tells us why we should always strive for imperfection; how he lost his favourite ever watch as a young man; and why we should all try to stay five years old forever.
