«You have to see crisis as your friend rather than your enemy.»

Our first guest on Beyer Talk needs no introduction. Every watch enthusiast knows the name Jean-Claude Biver. In this episode, René Beyer talks to the industry’s most visionary icon about timepieces and the industry in general. The pair also discuss their friendship – all over a pot of fondue!

When Jean-Claude Biver was invited to appear on Beyer Talk, he could never have imagined it would involve sitting down to a nice fondue in the Beyer Clock and Watch Museum. Yet despite the relaxed setting, the discussion certainly covers some complex topics.

At one point, Mr Biver explains how he came up with the name for the Hublot Big Bang. Without wishing to give too much away, it involves golf and tsunamis. René Beyer also manages to coax his guest into revealing his secret to dealing with crises. The answer will surprise you. As will the moment when the fondue decides to go walkabout during the conversation ...
