The Bucherer Gallery presentsAn evening with Jean-Claude Biver
Open. Approachable. Informal.A talk by Jean-Claude Biver
Jean-Claude Biver has left a unique mark on the watchmaking industry. He has been the President of the LVMH Watch Division for many years, responsible for brands such as TAG Heuer, Zenith and Hublot, among others. His expertise also helped Blancpain and Omega to scale new heights. During a talk at the Bucherer Gallery in Geneva, he offered Bucherer customers exclusive insights into his work, his eventful life and his passion for watches. In the subsequent Q&A session, he freely answered questions from the 60 or so attendees. Perhaps the most important takeaway from the inspiring evening: stay curious – and always follow your passion.
“Don’t look at the time, look at your watch. It has a story to tell.”
One of his main passions is his love for the art of watchmaking.
In his mind, watches are much more than mere timepieces; they are protective lucky charms, each with their own story to tell. A glance at the watch on your wrist is about much more than just checking the time – each one is a brief yet fascinating journey into its extraordinary past. His second passion is his farm in the Swiss mountains where he produces his own cheese, samples of which were offered to the audience after the talk. The inspiring evening drew to a close with signings of his book "L’homme qui a sauvé la montre mécanique".
