The first is a ballet of hour and minute hands moved by a mechanical heart, while the second is the gentle agility of a muscular body: watchmaking and the dance are age-old disciplines that travel along the same roads. Creative expression, artistic and technical mastery, precise hand gestures and the transmission of expertise are all values shared with grace and emotion in these two worlds. Like the Prix de Lausanne, considered “the top ballet competition in the world“, the watchmaker Émile Chouriet was created in Switzerland, but is international in scope. Its work is based on local watchmaking culture, and it produces its timepieces in its Geneva workshop, with most of the watches being exported abroad. What’s more, Émile Chouriet has a very open policy in terms of transmitting knowledge, with apprenticeships providing young watchmakers in the workshops with the tools they will need for the future. From these shared elements and values arose Émile Chouriet’s wish to support the Prix de Lausanne and take part in training young dancers. A wish that is now a great source of pride, since Emile Chouriet is now one of the partners of this major competition. emilechouriet.ch
