Meeting Philippe Dufour, Legend of Traditional Watchmaking – Ep. 6
After having visited some important and prestigious watch brands, Patek Philippe and Audemars Piguet, it was time for our guys of the Watchmaking Roadtrip to experience something rather different as today we will encounter a legend of traditional watchmaking: Mr. Philippe Dufour.
We remained in the Vallée de Joux and Mr. Dufour warmly greeted us in his workshop where he crafts his watches all by himself. This atelier really makes you feel and understand where watchmaking comes from and it was with great attention that all the guys listened carefully to Mr. Dufour as he explained to us in much details his career, his experience, his thoughts on modern watchmaking and naturally showed us some of his timepieces.
