Newsletter The four seasons of Geneva in two months

No, we’re not talking about the changeable weather in the home of Swiss watchmaking but a new photo exhibition that opens this week.

Over the course of a year, renowned Geneva-based photographer Christian Pfahl trod the route of the Geneva Watch Tour to capture vestiges of the city’s great past as the birthplace of Swiss watchmaking in the architecture of the city centre.

“Jean-Claude Biver is a genius of the industry who rightly merits a biography”

Paul O'Neil

From Wednesday this week, the results of his work can be seen in an exhibition of 24 photos on display at the Cité du Temps in the heart of the city. Camille Gendre offers a sneak preview of the exhibition in her article and WorldTempus will be publishing the photos from the exhibition over the coming weeks.

Tomorrow you can read David Chokron’s interview with Guillaume de Seynes, Vice-President of Hermès International and President of la Montre Hermès, and Laurent Dordet, the new managing director of watchmaking at Hermès. Our mini-theme on the brand famous for its orange boxes will continue later in the week with a detailed focus on one of the watch collections by Michèle Brunner.

As summer slowly comes to Europe, we see the first of the year’s yachting regattas. After covering Panerai’s Classic Yacht Regatta in Antibes last week, our focus turned to the Bol d’Or over the weekend. It is Europe’s biggest closed-water regatta, held every year on Lake Geneva, and is sponsored by Hublot. Camille Gendre braved the uncertain conditions on the lake just outside the watchmaking capital to cover the start for WorldTempus. You can read her report on the site later this week.
