Bonjour & Bienvenue

Epykomene visits Breguet at Baselworld 2018

In the wake of a unique heritage, being a watchmaker of the Royal Navy, and driven by this desire to continually outdo itself, the Breguet house unveiled last year a masterpiece of watchmaking, the model Marine Equation Marchante.

Beyond its impressive complications, this piece symbolizes the new generation of Marine timepieces, distinguished by a modern and dynamic look. In 2018, the House continues to develop this redesigned line through three new creations including titanium, a first for the collection. This line, with a revised aesthetic, mixes modernity and dynamism thanks to an original strap fastening, reworked fluting and a crown surrounded by a wave-shaped decor and an enlarged “B”. The Navy 5517 displays the date at 3 o’clock, housed in a Roman numeral clock. The latter are covered with luminescent material, as are the minute markers and Breguet “apple” needles. The marine world is recalled through the second hand decorated with a “B” in marine signals reinterpreted.

Another flagship model: the Navy Chronograph 5527. Featuring the graphic codes of the new generation of Marine parts introduced last year, this 42.3 mm timepiece sets the tone. The central chronograph hand is recognizable through a subtle marine detail. Breguet declines this novelty in several versions, anxious to offer a wide range of possibilities. A first version combines a white gold case with a blue gold dial, whose guilloche pattern “waves” reminiscent of the origins of the collection. A variation in pink gold is proposed with a guilloché silver dial. The House also offers its wearer the choice to opt for a leather or rubber strap.

When two Arts meets : Rodin and the dance at Rodin’s Museum in Paris

The exhibition “Rodin et la danse” recounts an artistic encounter imbued with freedom and grace. With the famous series of Dance Movements presented for the first time to the public, the art of the sculptor continues to fascinate with its modernity and its unvarnished steps. Sensitivity and reflection are in the spotlight in this reduced course, tinged with delicacy and femininity.

He ordered his models not to pose when he drew them, inviting them to move freely in space, capturing their movement continuously without looking at his support. The sketch is constructed in many energetic features, vibrating like a blurred photograph. The artist sometimes drew a line more frankly on a sheet of tracing or, in an approach similar to his sculpture, cut out the sketch in several parts and then assemble them as he pleases.

Rodin’s love for the ancient drives him to forget certain parts of the human body to retain only the dynamics of the movement.

“What is the body of the dancer if not an instrument by which he throws vibrations into the space, waves of music that will allow him to express all human emotions. “Wrote Loïe Fuller in her book Les cries du corps. And what expressiveness of the movement, what poetry of the gesture behind the suggested musculature, the unfinished figurines and the hardly carved faces! The genius is in this junction where, behind a brutal truth without any superficiality, one finds Rodin’s soul, his spontaneous artist’s hand, his modeling fingering.

When a good sculptor models human bodies, he not only represents the musculature, but also the life that warms them. One day, Rodin met the dance for our greatest pleasure.
