An ideal definition of elegance would be something like refinement, grace, and beauty in movement, appearance, or manners. As I start to discover elegance is more that the description above, I was ought to interview inspiring individuals, Raynald Aeschlimann, to define what’s his perspective of elegance in the eye of OMEGA’s new President and CEO. Raynald’s background in the luxury industry escpeically in Swatch group for 20 years, exquisite taste in lifestyle and charming character definitely had a credible answer.
VERONICA: WHAT IS ELEGANCE TO YOU?
RAYNALD: I LIKE THE WORD ELEGANCE, IN THE FRENCH WAY THERE IS A PHRASE ” ELEGANCE OF THE HEART”. BUT SOME MAY ASK HOW CAN A HEART BE ELEGANT? IN MY PERSPECTIVE, ELEGANCE COMES FROM KNOWLEDGE, TRULY BELIEVE IN CONTINUOUS LEARNING AND APPRECIATING WHAT’S NICE. IF YOU ARE SUCCESSFUL IN WHAT YOU ARE DOING, OTHERS WILL NOTICE AND ALSO BE INSPIRED. IT ALSO TAKES TIME TO UNDERSTANDING WHAT OTHERS PASSION ARE AND HOPE FOR THEIR SUCCESS
VERONICA : HOW DO YOU SEE ELEGANCE IN TIMEPIECES?
RAYNALD: OMEGA’S TIMEPIECES HAS IT’S OWN UNIQUENESS IN THE HEART. JUST LIKE HOW WE CHOOSE THE MOTHER OF PEARL, IT’S A CALL FROM THE NATURE AND WE CHOOSE THE BEST CENTRE PART ( IN TERMS OF THICKNESS, COLOURS AND TEXTURE) TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN HAVING A REAL TASTE OF MOTHER OF PEARL.
