MEERSON watches featured in GQ magazine - a beautiful portrait of the Altitude Premiere. Delighted! Thanks to James Gurney for his extremely kind words.
"Take the example of Alexandre Meerson, whose eponymous brand made its debut in 2014. The watches are sophisticated, smart and of impeccable quality, being based around movements of Parmigiani Fleurier, co-owned bt Hermes. The Altitude is a dress watch that suffers nothing in comparison to corresponding watches from long-established houses - the centre of the case back, for example, is gently curved, a line that is reflected in the sapphire crystal, with the "dauphine" hands are unusual, too, having contrasting finishes on each side, and the lugs are beautifully faceted and shaped."
"That hasn't come about by accident - Meerson is the son of famed jewellery and watch designer Emerich, in whose studio he apprenticed. After that, he built a career in the watch industry, working as both designer and manager. That gave him both the eye and the experience, quite apart from the industry contacts to open the doors of top suppliers."
"As it happens, the industry is replete with suppliers and many of the more interesting independent watchmakers work as much for industry clients as for their own labels."
