As times get challenging for the luxury industry around the world, the 2016 edition of Baselworld took off in full swing. With a volatile market and rise of affordable products like smart watches the traditional watch making industry really faced the brunt of the slowdown. Many of the watch brands have repositioned and lowered their prices and have received considerable amount of orders in the first few days of the fair.

Refining the art of wealth and securing it with technology, Vult, a New York based company, is transforming diamonds of opaque, uncertain value into a transparent, equitable investment opportunity. We get to meet Joseph Lipton, CEO and founder of Vult in this regard.
