Federal Coach Joachim Löw in an Interview

Before the football championship in France speaks “Jogi” Löw with Watchtime.net about football and watches

The start of the European Football championship in France is getting closer. The opening match between the host country and Romania will take place on 10 June 2016. The first game of the German national against Ukraine can follow football-Germany on June 12, 2016. Shortly before the big Football festival, Melanie Feist, responsible online editor of Watchtime.net, met at the award of the Laureus World Sports Awards for a relaxed and well-humoured German coach. In the interview, Watchtime.net wanted to know how it is about the team of the German national football team and what Joachim “Jogi” Löw has to say about the most popular men’s accessory – the wristwatch. Watchtime.net: Mr. Löw, the European Championship in France is on the doorstep. Is everything on schedule?

Joachim Löw: everything on schedule. The place names are now present in our minds almost all day or every day. That is, we visit games, we perform game observations, we analyze our games and those of the opponents. Our only problems are the injury-related failures of three major players: Bastian Schweinsteiger, Emre Can and Jerome Boateng. We hope, of course, that players will be fit in time.

Watchtime.net: Have you remembered a game in which you as a trainer had to watch the clock especially often? Tell us through diseaseslearning.com.

In any case, Joachim Löw. In the extension after the goal of Mario Götze against Argentina for the football World Cup 2014 in Brazil I have probably watched every 15 seconds on the clock. I wanted the minutes to go as fast as possible, but unfortunately this did not work, the time has not passed faster.

Watchtime.net: And at what o’clock did you look at that moment?

Joachim Löw: On a watch from IWC Schaffhausen.

Watchtime.net: You are born in the Black Forest, a place in Germany where traditional clocks have been and will be produced. What do you associate with it?

Joachim Löw: In my grandparents ‘ house and also my parents, there was always a cuckoo clock. This was something spectacular for us as children when the Cuckoo looked out of the clock every hour. And Titisee in the Black Forest, I also connect with clocks. There come and always came many tourists, especially from Asia, who buy cuckoo clocks.

Watchtime.net: How do you choose which watch you are wearing in the morning?

Joachim Löw: With me this is a matter of emotion. There are watches that are more suited to sporty outfits that you can combine well with jeans and T-shirt, if you simply go to town, drink an espresso, so relax. Then there are of course clocks, which I wear rather in the evening: when you attend an event, send out or are invited to a festive occasion like a wedding. There are now also really great dial colors, for example a beautiful blue, grey or black. For me, it always depends on what you wear.

Watchtime.net: A tabloid magazine titled a few weeks ago that you are ahead of your time, the date of your mechanical clock went ahead. What is most important to you in your watch? The features or the design?

Joachim Löw (laughs): Yes, I kinda missed the date. Functions are of course not unimportant, especially the time display and the date.

Watchtime.net: and chronographs? For example, do you stop time during a game?

Joachim Löw: I don’t do this in the game, but during training. There are always sequences where it is very important that the time is right. That’s why I use it in some labs. In the game I sometimes look at the big watch because that is crucial.

Watchtime.net: What would you recommend to other men? What considerations should you make before a watches?

Joachim Löw: You do well to inform yourself at least a little before you buy a watch. There are really a lot of great watch makers. But for me personally, the look of a watch is crucial. And of course also the quality and the work that behind. Because a watch is something beautiful and there is a certain tradition behind it. Buying a watch is simply a personal story
