Arnaud was everything but a watchmaker as he started his career as an aerospace engineer. It was his avid interest for technology, the arts and haute horology, that led him to his position as CEO & Artistic Director of L'Epee 1839 today. Through his leadership and visionary thinking, L’Epee 1839 thrived and created sustainability in the modern world. Bringing new thinking into a Horology brand with almost two centuries of heritage, his concept of product design has proved to be successful - one that is not restrained by old methodologies. Every product development starts from a blank page. A story is conceptualized and from there, a new movement is created, along with its housing. Every step along the way points back to the beginning – the Story.
