It Only Took Apple 5 Years to Dominate this 265-Year-Old Industry

Watches had been around for a long time before we started wearing Apple’s version, but it only took a few years for the Apple Watch to become the most popular wearable timepiece on earth. That’s according to a new report from research firm Strategy Analytics, which says that Apple shipped almost 31 million units last year, while the entire Swiss watch industry shipped a little over 21 million… More here.

While I see the future of smartwatches as potentially more damaging than quartz to the Swiss industry, I am not sure that just because millions of people are buying smartwatches should not necessarily kill off the former. Maybe the entire industry is just getting bigger.
