There are certain moments on the Time+Tide journey that stand out. When, amid the blur of watches, events and people you just step back and say, ‘Wow, did that really happen?’ Like when Michael Clarke, former captain of the Australian test cricket team and current comeback kid agreed to quiz the Chairman of the Board of Hublot, Jean-Claude Biver for us, on the topic of captaincy. A captain speaking to a captain.
Hearing Michael say, in the opening seconds, “…for Time+Tide” made me double take. Thank you Michael for taking the interview reins for us. Beyond suggesting a theme for discussion, we didn’t have much to do with this video. Like Michael, who kicked off by asking about management style, we let the magic happen. The passion. The advice. The conviction. If you’re in need of a two-minute refresher in leadership and living your best life in general, this is it. All delivered by a force of nature in the watch industry, Jean-Claude Biver. He wasn’t wearing a hat on the day, but he wears three in the watch industry; CEO of TAG Heuer, Chairman of the Board at Hublot and President of the Watch Division of LVMH. He is a man whose shadow grows no shorter with the passing of time.
