Christophe Guérin, born in 1960, is an aficionado of art in all its forms; he is also an admirer of fine mechanisms and a music lover. After graduating from the Janson de Sailly high school, he studied economic science at the University of Paris II. He went on to attend the Neuchâtel Technicum, considered the world’s best school of horology at the time.
Upon completing his training, he found he had not only obtained the best degrees in clockmaking, he had also absorbed Swiss exactness and precision as philosophies of life. When he took over La Pendulerie in 1985, he acquired his true profession, as a specialist in antique horology. He has run the gallery ever since then, with joy, enthusiasm, and unflagging determination.
