Geneva Time Exhibition’s third edition welcomed four members from the Horological Academy of Independent Creators (AHCI) at the Espace Hippomène in Geneva.
Svend Andersen, Marc Jenni, Jean Kazes and Antoine Preziuso presented their latest collections and art pieces on the same exhibition space. “It is a real honor to welcome these prestigious watchmakers,” said Florence Noël, Show Director. “The AHCI coming to GTE is part of the logic and continuity of our mission: promoting the art of making time in Geneva and beyond its frontiers.”
A personal highlight for me was the 3rd design price received for the design of the „JJJ“ at the GTE Superwatch Awards 2012!
„Third place went to a real newcomer in the watch industry: Marc Jenni is a third generation watchmaker and member of the prestigious A.H.C.I. (Académie des Horlogers Indépendents). His second watch is based o the crown-less mechanics of his first, but boasts a refined dial created in sapphire crystal with metallic and tinted effects making for a homogenous whole.“ – Elizabeth Doerr for Worldtempus 17.01.2012
