HKDI in the Spotlight

   ECAL Master Class 2018

To ride on the success on the “Executive Course in Watch Design” by ECAL, HKDI invites ECAL to tailor-made two Master Classes in global hot topics to the professionals in Hong Kong.  We aim to bring in new design inspirations from Switzerland to Hong Kong.  Switzerland is again top of the class in the World Economic Forum (WEF)’s Global Competitiveness Index – for the ninth year in a row – narrowly ahead of the United States and Singapore.  The collaboration between HKDI and ECAL is one step further to strengthen the connection between the two competitive places in the world.
