Emile Chouriet “Fair Lady Butterfly”
The beauty of dreams never fades
Like a lotus flower growing on the dark waters of a pond or a butterfly emerging out of his cocoon, beauty arises spontaneously in nature. But it also inevitably withers and disappears, unless it is transformed into something that never dies: art. The designs of the Fair Lady collection translate the forms found in nature into the language of watchmaking. Rather than to simply imitate a flower or a the wings of a butterfly, we have abstracted new patterns to inform the design of the watches, from their dials to the bracelets. The patterns sublimate the purity of frail petals and wings into the lasting beauty the craftsmanship of metal, echoing the techniques of origami and guillochage. The patterns of this collection inscribe themselves within the signature shapes of the Emile Chouriet watches, renewing and energizing them. When you wear a Fair Lady watch, you are not only wearing a beautiful jewel with a pure design, but, unsuspecting, you wear the beauty of our dreams too.
Emile Chouriet History
Jean Depéry, the founder of the Emile Chouriet manufacture, also had a dream. Descending from a family involved in the watchmaking industry in Geneva since the 17th century, after studies in microengineering and a successful career of his own in the conception and production of watch components, in 1998 he decided to take the next step and create his own timepieces. He named the company after Emile Chouriet, a gifted 17th century watchmaker for whom his own ancestor, François Dagobert Depéry, had produced components. The name is a testimony to Jean Depéry’s vision: a tribute to the collaboration between his ancestor and the master watchmaker, it underlines the continued importance of the union of talents and expertise in the field of luxury timekeeping.
In 2012, as we opened a new factory in Meyrin and reinforced our team of talented craftsmen and professionals, the founder’s daughters, Marion and Sophie, both joined the company as marketing manager and as art director respectively, bringing a breath of fresh air. Since then, the wings of our original design have mutated into waves, butterflies, petals of flowers or solar rays, and each new timepiece helps us forge our identity at the same time as it is inspired by it, enriching a catalogue that combines overall coherence and constant innovation.
To manufacture exceptional watches, Emile Chouriet harvests what history has to offer and puts this knowledge to work within an alliance of the best craftsmanship available today. Drawing from the heritage of excellence and elegance of the Swiss tradition to bring it into new territory, the Emile Chouriet manufacture quickly became a successful brand, marking a new step in the history of the founding family.
Poetry in Millimetres
Working with cutting edge technology at the crossroads between tradition and modernity, we continually invest in new projects, researching and developing new models and collections. We produce in-house mechanical movements and are currently developing our own assortment, the beating heart of the watch movement, a once in a lifetime opportunity for a watchmaker. We ceaselessly redraw the parts to find to perfect curve and manufacture the perfect balance; timekeeping is poetry in millimetres.
