julien Coudray 1518 ?Cultivate the crafts and technical feats? would be a fitting slogan for JULIEN COUDRAY 1518, whose pure and authentic timepieces mirror the passion of the people managed by Fabien Lamarche. Based in the heart of the Neuchatel watchmaking country, the Manufacture consciously sets out to be a melting pot of passions and astounding know-how in the constant quest for technical and aesthetic perfection; creating a magic formula sought after by epicureans and watchmaking art lovers! There is nothing to rival precious metals for standing the test of time. Perhaps because watchmakers, more than anyone else, have a firm grasp of the passage of time and a love of precision, the Manufacture has chosen to work only with materials that will survive the centuries, and whose durability will maintain the precision of the watch. Whether for visible or invisible parts, solid gold and platinum, plus traditional grand feu enamelling, are the main materials adopted for making the movement, case, dial and buckle of the watches, which therefore become inalterable. As its name indicates, this unique piece draws its inspiration from the interpretation of the theme ?Draw me a happy child? by a 5-year old schoolchild in Switzerland, in the Le Locle district. In support of the Monaco Association Against Myopathy, julien Coudray 1518 will approach children from other countries in the same way, to create other unique pieces on the same theme.
