J: Journalist
J: Audemars Piguet entered China in 1999, but only opened its first store in Ningbo in 2008. At present, how many specialty stores does Audemars Piguet have in China? How is it going?
D: Audemars Piguet currently has 20 points of sale in China, of which 12 are single-brand stores. We plan to expand our sales network, but as always, we will focus on the quality of sales over the number of stores.
While Audemars Piguet has established networks in many important cities in China, we hope to further develop the markets of some second- and third-tier cities with great development capabilities.
J: Unlike other luxury brands, when Audemars Piguet chooses a store location in China, it starts in a second-tier city. Is this a unique strategy of Audemars Piguet?
D: Frankly, I believe it was based on a decision that we agreed with our sales partners. When we met a partner in line with Audemars Piguet’s philosophy, we decided to seize the opportunity to develop the market.
J: As the person in charge of the Chinese market, how long do you work in China? How to look at the Chinese market?
D: Even though I haven’t lived in China for a long time, in the past 13 years, I have been in contact with this place at work. I think China is a very challenging market. There may be great differences in culture and personality between cities, so a high degree of resilience is required when planning. But on the other hand, this market also has a very high return, as long as you find the right decision.
J: Facing the sluggish market environment, how will Audemars Piguet be deployed in China in the next few years? What is the goal?
D: I just mentioned that Audemars Piguet has always adopted a more conservative sales network decision, focusing on quality but not weight. Our goal is to provide the best customer service, which is what the brand insists on and values. Audemars Piguet has not been too strongly affected by the current economic downturn, which makes us more certain that the brand’s policy has been correct.
J: What makes Audemars Piguet’s ‘Royal Oak’ series unique?
D: The Audemars Piguet brand-the Royal Oak series is an iconic watch. Forty years ago, no one believed that a newly created watch could be sold for the price of a gold watch. Looking back, the unique design of this timepiece, the unique octagonal bezel and the distinctive strap, and its careful polishing have created the success of Royal Oak. Today, Royal Oak is still one of the leading timepieces.
