Alexandre Meerson Altitude Premiere Officier MEERSON D15 Mk-1 GMT True Blue Leather Accessories Luxury Style Haute Couture Owner Series Deborah
 

Living in the heart of the bustling city of Paris, Deborah is the quintessential Parisian woman. Epitomizing everything great about her city, we were instantly hit by her style, along with her natural warmth and charisma. It is easier to see why she was drawn to the Altitude, as the same discreet embellishments that can be found in the collection, are present throughout her outfit. A professional life coach, she works with individuals with the goal of finding solutions adapted to their particular situations to reach their personal and professional goals. We were able to sit down with her in a suitably quaint park on a lovely day in Paris.

Why did you choose MEERSON?

Deborah Genser: I was looking for a luxury watch, but had strict specifications as to what I wanted. It was not just a question of buying into a well-known luxury brand, or a famous fashion house, purely for the label or reputation that goes with it. For me, a watch is much more than a fashion piece. It is a personal signature. After researching, I discovered the Meerson house, and more importantly its history, and its universe. The deeper I dug, and the more I discovered about Meerson, the more I feel in love. They possess something extra; the philopshy of the house, the magnificant beauty and detail of the pieces, and the inspiring story of Alexandre the creator, sets them apart from other watch brands.

How do you like to wear your Altitude Officier?

I wear my Officier all the time! It has such inimitable and distinguished look and feel to it, it is the finishing touch for every outfit I wear. The watch is designed in a manner that makes it perfectly fit my wrist, meaning its is incredably light and comfortable despite it being solid gold! This was an important factor for me, as it allows me to wear it easily, whatever the circumstance. The dial design also lends itself to the timepiece's versatility. It houses the perfect blend of classic and casual characteristics, meaning it is perfectly suited to my work enviroment, casual evening with friends, and especially social events. Yesterday I wore it with a my suit, today with a much more casual, feminine glam-rock style. Such versatility is very hard to find.

What are your favourite aspects of your timepiece?

Apart from its obvious elegance, I love how my watch almost 'plays' in the light. The rose gold case, with its contrasting ADLC finish, create such a range of striking tones in the sunlight. I also deeply appreciate the french influence found on the dial, which is no doubt a tribute to the House's heritage and history. I was fortunate to talk with Alexandre himself, and he informed me that the number 7 was deliberately left with its lateral bar, giving it a distinct French touch. It is these telling intimate aspects that bring my piece to life.

Do you find that your Meerson positively impacts your life in any way at all?

There is a French saying which answers this question well enough: "you never have the opportunity to make a first good impression twice". And well, I can tell my watch has certainly been a positively influence in these situations. It is also incredibly satisfying to be able to wear something created from such wonderful materials, that is hand-crafted, and therefore completely unique, by the finest Swiss artisans.
