Emile Chouriet Alchimie Automatic Men's Watch - 08-2186-g-6-2-65-6
THE MAGIC TRANSMUTATION OF TIMEKEEPING
Metal turns into a kind of Gold every time the components of a watch are transmuted into a beautiful timepiece. The encounter between the parts is not a simple mechanical process of addition, but a moment of true magic: the moment when the touch of the watchmaker brings his complex mechanism to life. The Alchimie, with the bright Mineral colours and the pure and clean design of its dial, echoes this moment of magic in the language of watchmaking. Rather than simply illustrate the process of transmutation, we have abstracted a design that sublimates the idea of a destined encounter in which metal components turn into the Gold of luxury timekeeping.

Jean Depéry, founder of Emile Chouriet, comes from a long line of Master Watchmakers dating back to 1700. He was born in Geneva in 1949. He was initially destined to take over his father's notary's practice, but decided to follow his passion, studied microtechnology and became an engineer. He founded ‘Emile Chouriet', naming it after an eighteenth-century watchmaker. This name was a way for Jean Depéry to pay tribute to his ancestor, François Dagobert Depéry, supplier of watch components to Emile Couriet, whose history began in 1685. Like many master watchmakers, Emile Chouriet left France, fleeing religious persecution. He opened his workshop in Geneva and developed his watchmaking talent there. He specialised in the decoration of “onion” type pocket watches. This avant-garde watch was more accurate thanks to its very large balance wheel, and was greatly appreciated by the aristocracy and haute bourgeoisie. Chouriet soon earned fame for his delicate, elegant style and the meticulous detail of his decorations. He decorated the watches with enamel, to which he added guilloché, pearls and gold of various colours.
