Toying with various ways to translate this (article about Cartier):

Louis Joseph, petit-fils de Louis-François le fondateur, rejoint la maison et son magasin parisien. Le jeune homme de 23 ans a des envies d'ailleurs. Il a surtout compris que les nombreux clients attendent sans cesse de nouveaux modèles,

longed to be elsewhere
was interested in foreign lands
had other ideas?

Thanks in advance for any ideas...

    Moderando ma non troppo (French-English, CC Mod)
    English - USA
    Il a surtout compris que les nombreux clients attendent sans cesse de nouveaux modèles,
    It seems from this statement that he wanted to travel in order to find new and innovative merchandise--not follow his own personal wanderlust.

    Interpreting the idea broadly, perhaps: He had his eye on new business horizons.
