Charles Dickens , in full Charles John Huffam Dickens , (born February 7, 1812, Portsmouth, Hampshire , England—died June 9, 1870, Gad’s Hill, near Chatham, Kent), English novelist, generally considered the greatest of the Victorian era. His many volumes include such works as A Christmas Carol , David Copperfield , Bleak House , A Tale of Two Cities , Great Expectations , and Our Mutual Friend .

How he struck his contemporaries in these early years appears in R.H. Horne’s New Spirit of the Age (1844). Dickens occupied the first and longest chapter, as

manifestly the product of his age…a genuine emanation from its aggregate and entire spirit.…He mixes extensively in society, and continually. Few public meetings in a benevolent cause are without him. He speaks effectively.…His influence upon his age is extensive—pleasurable, instructive, healthy, reformatory.…

Paul Collins is the author of “The Murder of the Century: The Gilded Age Crime That Scandalized a City and Sparked the Tabloid Wars,” to be published in June.

I t’s the beginning of 2018 and people are already asking me what watches I think we are going to see debuted at the SIHH and Baselworld 2018 watch and jewelry trade shows. After receiving these questions, I like to remind people that watch companies are notoriously secretive and thus what we are likely going to see isn't necessarily predictable or even a product that is ideally suited to market needs. So rather than predict what brands will do, I'll share what I feel they should do.

The fact that the watch industry seems slow to respond to market needs is related to the typical production creation lifecycle, which on average is about three years. That means most watches that will debut in 2018 were actually started in 2015 or earlier. There are of course times when companies rush it and produce prototypes which can be made faster, but these watches aren't typical, and the prototypes usually aren't anything to get too excited about until the consumer models are released.

All of this is to say that what the watch industry is coming out with in 2018 isn't necessarily a response to what we as consumers feel 2018 requires from the watch industry. Some brands will inevitably come out with products which are the right mixture of design and price, but many companies will respond to 2018 watch industry market needs with products in 2020 or later. I say this as a small preamble to explain why sometimes the immediate needs of watch buyers and the output of watch companies are not always aligned.
