Video: The Ace List S03E05 Davide Cerrato of HYT Watches

One of the most influential watch designers in the industry, Davide Cerrato, has started a new chapter in his impressive career. Today he is the CEO & Creative Director of HYT Watches. An excellent reason to have invited Davide back on the show. Last season he was our guest for the first time and it turned out to be a fun conversation with Ace Jewelers’ Alon Ben Joseph. You can watch episode S02E07 HERE.

In the previous episode we extensively discussed his evolution as watch designer. And, his successes at Panerai, Tudor and Montblanc. In this episode he shares his vision and strategy for the ultra innovative and contemporary HYT Watches. Their DNA is made up of a new fluidic module encapsulating 10 years of learnings and improvements, an evolution of the manufacture mechanical caliber developed with Eric Coudray delivering a perfect synchronization of fluidic and mechanical time.

Davide Cerrato

As you have noticed we love design at Ace Jewelers and love designers even more. We are very humbled that Davide Cerrato sat down with our very own Alon Ben Joseph to talk about marketing, cars, design and obviously wristwatches.

Davide Cerrato is not only a very nice guy, super passionate and a true gentleman, but he is also a legend in the watch industry. He has done so much, he goes by the following titles: The Design Kid – Creative Alchemist, Watch Designer & Breakthrough Innovator.

His track record led him from defining the global image of Panerai for five years, to working on relaunching Tudor for nine years (where he designed the Black Bay) and spend his last five years at Montblanc as the managing director of the watch unit (where he was the force behind the full integration between Minerva and Montblanc watches).
