Done! The second exhibition of Marc Jenni timepieces under the umbrella of the horological academy of independent creators (AHCI) is over. After digesting the busy environment at the fair, it is time to look back and comment some personal highlights.
Presenting my newest creation the “JJJ” along with the original pocket watch from Johan Jakob Jenny - a timepiece manufactured around 1780 from a distant relative - was very emotional. 230 years of watchmaking history are separating these two timepieces!
Another light needs to be put on our new display. Brought to life by artist Noël Fischer (www.noelfischer.ch) from Zurich, the golden triangle is perfectly embedded and surrounded by spectacular perspectives and facets. This utterly creative display presented the actual watch collections “Prologue” and “JJJ” in a dramatic and unique way. Thank you Noël for your inspiration and creativity!
Last but not least, I shall remember all unforgettable moments I was fortunate to share with watch lovers and enthusiasts, with journalists and editors, photographers, retailers, colleagues and friends...
