BREGUET, STORY OF A PASSION: 1973-1987. Francois Bodet. Watchprint.com, 2015. Distributed by Antique Collectors' Club, New York. 128 pp. 19 x 19 cm. ISBN 9782940506095 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Written as a type of intimate journal combining childhood memories with those of a young apprentice and all the experiences gained and born of encounters, firstly with the great names in jewelry and subsequently in watchmaking, this book is above all a testimony to the birth of a passion placed at the service of the brand. François Bodet makes plain, through his own story, the profound significance of time in the evolution of knowledge. This is all the more worth highlighting today, when our society is confronted with the constraints of standardization, computerization and dehumanization which result in the "quickly done" taking precedence over the "well done". It is appropriate to remember that success may only be achieved by following the various stages of a process that must allow time to take its course. As well as devoting his life to the rebirth of historical pocket watches while safeguarding their essence, François Bodet succeeded in promoting Breguet internationally, while preserving the emotional substance of objects that have come to life through a process showing respect for the various phases of time.
