Simplicity does not mean simple. Not by any stretch of the imagination, no matter what people like to gestate. When it is not being misused, it represents a series of integrate actions, formatted in a intuitive manner. The term focuses on the formation of the actions, not the actions themselves. The art of displaying such complexity in one smooth paint stroke. No man, at least in Paris, epitomises this as much as Julien Servadio. Whether it is his work, everyday life or his outfit, Julien always sticks to the fundamentals, ensuring he perfects them, allowing him to omit an air of simplicity in everything he does. No wonder it is a Altitude Première that calls his wrist home.

How did you discover the house of MEERSON?

Julien Servadio: I was instantly attracted to the MEERSON house, and their watches, due to the exclusive nature that is every present around their products. Each watch showcases a certain level of the distinction, and integrity, like any great luxury brand needs to. They are not watches you will see on the wrist of any man in the street. They are not exclusive for exclusive's sake, you just require to understand what real luxury is, and have a strong sense of individuality to wear something different from most, something that is severally lacking today. Effectively I was drawn to the brand as I felt, not only do they showcase great design, but there was a great deal of emotion and inspiration behind them, due to Alexandre's unique perspective.

"I feel like I'm savouring a rare, special and excellent wine... I just feel lucky."

How do you tend to wear your watch?

I like to wear my watch to any occasion. I must confess, when I first purchased it I thought that it would be my black-tie watch, and that it would be reserved for my business dinners or any formal occasion. But, in fact, due to its extreme comfort, and 'apparent' simplicity, I stress the word apparent here, it has the ability to lend itself beautifully to any occasion. The titanium case also helps with the pieces versatility, as it absorbs the colour of whatever is around it! You know, I love fine wines, and when i'm wearing my Altitude True Blue small seconds, I feel like I'm savouring a rare, special and excellent wine... I just feel lucky.

What particular aspects do you love about your Altitude Première?

I love that my watch is both technologically impressive, and also a beautifully designed piece. The combination of artistry and engineering is perfect. I also really enjoyed being able to completely personalise and tailor my watch to my liking. But to be honest it is difficult to pinpoint my favourite details, as there are so many. Oscar Wilde said; “I'm a man of simple tastes. I'm always satisfied with the best.". This is something I try to carry with me throughout my life, and I feel my watch serves as a great metaphor of this. Knowing that a great designer like Alexandre precisely designed every single detail is a special feeling. When I'm looking into my deep True Blue dial tone I see the work, the precision, sculpted into a wonderful composition.

"I have owned several watches throughout my life, but none give me such emotion as my Altitude."

Does your MEERSON improve your life at all?

As my MEERSON watch could be described as a discreet piece, I was initially surprised to find so many people ask me questions about it! However I love being able to explain to them the artistic manner of Alexandre's work, his story and how his passion is communicated through his work. I chose to wear a MEERSON on my wrist because I have a soul of an adventurer, a pioneer and because it is just magnificent. I have owned several watches throughout my life, but none give me such emotion as my Altitude.
