Emile Chouriet AILES DU TEMPS Women's Watch - 61-1156-l-4-95-6
OUR WINGS, YOUR DREAM
Humans have always dreamed of flying, and we chose to echo this dream with our first timepiece, Ailes du temps, placing the Emile Chouriet brand under the patronage of Daedalus. Father of Icarus in ancient Greek mythology, Daedalus represents the archetype of the skilful craftsman and artist who escapes imprisonment by manufacturing his own wings. These wings are an allegory of the dream of humanity to transcend its finitude through technology and art, and have since become part of the DNA of our brand.

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.
