Keeping Time S.6 Episode 3: Manuel Emch

By  |  0 Comments

Our guest for this episode of Keeping Time Podcast is Manuel Emch. A truly creative visionary, Manuel brings incredible enthusiasm and impeccable design sense to the watch industry. As an independent consultant, Manuel utilizes his time to explore different projects as well as mentoring some of the most talented up and coming watchmakers.

Join us for this episode as we discuss Manuel’s origins, journey and motivations. He became the Swatch Group’s youngest ever Brand President, 20 years ago, when Manuel took the reins and developed the historically important brand, Jaquet Droz. With a keen eye for design and a deep respect for history, Manuel built a successful luxury brand around the inspired Grande Seconds design inspired by an original creation of Jaquet Droz. Today, the focus of the conversation turns to his vision for the exciting brand, Louis Erard. With a deep respect for “Métiers d’Art,” including Grand Feu enamel dials and engine-turned guilloché dials, Manuel saw an opportunity to create extraordinary watches at surprisingly affordable prices. We discuss the collection and how he is able to create such competitively priced, highly desirable and collectible timepieces. We also discuss the exciting collaborations which to date include Vianney Halter and Alain Silberstein.

The conversation flows as Manuel shares his passion and insights and, eager as ever for knowledge, host Jeremy Oster is keen to encourage further depth and discussion in this engaging conversation. The subject turns to Manuel’s eagerness to mentor and assist the next generation of talented watchmakers, including Rexhap Rexhapi. We hope that you enjoy this episode of Keeping Time Podcast.
