Taking Time

Precision of time is a watchmaker’s raison d’être. So I was suprised to be told by Florian Wulleman, l’horloger, during my recent production of his audio portrait, that a minute is not necessarily a minute. And that we are better off relaxing and not clockwatching at all.

I spent the day alongside Florian in his atelier in Vence, a medieval hilltop town between the Côte d’Azur and the French Alps. Working alone, he repairs and sells watches and clocks, most of which have been in service for some time.

Lose yourself here for (approximately) 2 minutes in the watchmaker’s world:

    […] Rebecca Marshall, photographe, a également réalisé un beau reportage audio et illustré, très intimiste, de Florian et de son atelier… il vaut le détour… https://www.rebecca-marshall.com/2010/12/horloger/ […]

    Congratulation for this quite nice reportage. Your pictures are beautiful and match perfectly what Florian W. is saying.
    I was lucky to be a trainee in his workshop in Vence for 4 weeks.
    I have just made an interview (in French), you can see it here: http://www.montresethorloges.fr/2012/10/florian-wulleman-atelier-horlogerie-vence/
