    Good one! ;)

    For those who don't know, that would be our fearless leader David Chalmers / @Calibre11.

    Here are some interviews that offer some history as to how Calibre11 came to be:

    The direction JCB took is nothing to do with his current ill health.

    For me this is a sad news. Always like him for what he have done so far for Tag Heuer (as a whole, not just Heuer).

    Wish him all the best and speed recovery.

    Although Stéphane Bianchi will head LVMH Watches, it’s not yet clear if that means he will be the TH CEO

    Did not realise this was an opportunity to apply for a job :D I want a fancy title, fat salary and not much to do (I only work between approx 10-16, 4 days a week, spare time is nice). Thank you

    Slacking? No no, in Sweden some of us have this thing called "förtroendearbetstid", directly translated it means "trust work hours". In other words I decide how few/many hours I work as long as the job gets done, plus better benefits, 6 weeks vacation per year and great salary :thumbsup: so glad I was born in this wonderful country. Happy workers creates better results and motivated, loyal staff :)

    Don't worry, there are Swedes working 40 hours per week busting their ass off for an average salary as well, so not everyone is enjoying the same "lazy" life as me ;)

    :) 40-hour-work-weeks would be a dream. My work-days start at home, then 12 hrs -14 hrs at the office, many times followed by calls and emails with offshore late into night / morning hours once I'm back home.

    Which brings us back on topic with this old article where Mr Biver discussed his work habits.
