In the words of Neil Armstrong: It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth. I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth. I didn’t feel like a giant. I felt very, very small.
This is a teaser for the upcoming documentary of the Skyliners, and their incredible exploration into the world of free flight.Tancrède, Julien, Seb and Antoine are pioneers in ‘highlining’ – a vertiginous combination of climbing, slackline and tightrope walking.These guys travelled from their home in Chamonix to a training ground in the Verdon gorge, testing the limits.
They rigged highlines on the skyscrapers of Paris, and finally came to the spectacular cliffs and fjords of Norway.

Producing an high-end timepiece can be a grueling process, 2 years of work and hard labor. The process is surely not limited to the design and creative aspect, the final product only happens with the dedication of numerous people from engineers, factory manager, seamstresses, prototypist, quality expert, watchmaker….. Myself and “El Presidente” Mr Alain Marhic himself visited Switzerland 2 weeks ago to round up production issues before the summer break and I am always bewildered by the number of person and hands it takes to make a timepiece happen….
Visiting a factory is a good reminder of the dedication of all those artisans to quality and impeccable production, we are grateful to work with such talented crafstman.
Here are a couple of photos of our trip and of the people and personalities behind the fantastic swiss made label…..
