Emile Chouriet Classic Wisdom

Elegance and classicism, the Wisdom collection includes among Emile Chouriet’s most iconic timepieces. Paying tribute to the patient craftsmanship and refined techniques of the timekeeping tradition in Geneva, the design is nonetheless resolutely contemporary, demonstrating how the wisdom of the past can strengthen the experimentations of the present when it informs them.

The design of the Classic Wisdom epitomizes the bridge between tradition and modernity which defines the collection. The two wings of Emile Chouriet’s logo/emblem are spread out across the dial, resembling a wave, and give a distinctive contemporary feel to a classic and elegant timepiece.
The dial is an encounter between two different textures of black. The lower side is made out of rough metal, a mat and dense surface which creates an impression of opening by absorbing the light, as if a new, abstract dimension opens within the dial. The upper side is glossier, a texture obtained through sunray brushing which reflects the light in multiple shades of black.
This reinterpretation of Emile Chouriet’s signature wings provides a visual expression to our ambition: the two complementary textures of black, glossy and dark, symbolize the encounter between tradition and modernity which informs the watch.
