Rodeline

Watch-polishing artisan

Lights, please! If there were an artisan who works in harmony with light, it is Rodeline, a watch-polishing Artisan in our Manufacture since 2007. Every day, fired by the same passion, she reveals the lustre of metals so that they reflect sunbeams as brightly as possible. Timepieces pass through her hands in the final stage of their production, before being revealed to the public in all their brilliance and beauty.

Polishing is the art of highlighting. Revealing the shine, accentuating the radiance, drawing the gaze. When the watch creations in our workshops appear almost finished, they are sent to Rodeline's workbench. This passionate Artisan joined our Maison in 2002 as an apprentice and the best in-house trainers transmitted their knowledge to her, along with the duty of performing meticulous craftsmanship. At the end of her years of training, Rodeline became a watch-polishing Artisan for our Manufacture. 

Using small lathes and polishing paste, she accesses even the smallest corners of each piece entrusted to her, in order to remove any roughness, scratches and dust. Everything must sparkle with a pristine appearance! 

Rodeline thereby endows all her creations with a very special lustre. In addition to glowing brightly on the tray where she places them once she has completed her work, they bring a special sparkle to her own eyes, as she constantly imagines all those who will soon be reading the time on the watches she polishes.

"Today, the considerable dexterity I have acquired over time enables me to work on watch cases – which I receive in their rough state – in order to reveal the final radiance of the material while preserving the required geometry and aesthetics."
