Svend Andersen – Contemporary Art Svend Andersen is sometimes called the “Watchmaker of the Impossible” because it can leave your mouth open the whole world with amazing creations and inventions. To remember the exploits of the “clock bottle” – created in 1969, “1884” a clock “hours of the world” which tells the fascinating story of the inventor of the 24 time zones, or Hebraka, a wristwatch with the Jewish calendar, which has created with Alain Silberstein Svend … A true exploits of mechanics. It is an extraordinary artist.
Marc Jenni – A Unique Experience Winding Marc Jenni has never wanted to become a watchmaker. Well, fortunately for all lovers of watches, he began an apprenticeship at the age of sixteen and has started his career in New York at Tiffany & Co. In 2008, he was ready to open his own company. For its first participation in the GTE, Marc Jenni Prologue will present his creations, with a black ring that rotates around the entire box, and JJJ, reminding the wearer of the planets associated with days of the week.
Jean Kazes – Sculptural Clockmaker Since 1972, Jean Kazes has made a name with its carved clocks and watches. These pieces illustrate the purity of both movements – simple or complicated (perpetual calendars, astronomical representations, universal hours, ringing in step …). These works of art are a symbol of the delicate balance struck between in-depth mastery of a watchmaker and contemporary design.
