Season 4 Episode 11 – Emeric Delalandre, Co-Founder at Hegid.
Emeric is a talented and passionate entrepreneur currently working in watches at Hegid. Still, from our conversation, I could tell he could easily be working in any other industry and succeed. It just happens that he is passionate about watches, which is why we have Hegid.
Emeric is a French national, and this is something that drives him, with one of his goals being bringing French watchmaking to the forefront. French Watchmaking entered the UNESCO World Heritage List in December 2020, and Emeric is one of the individuals determined to grow French watchmaking.
I visited the boutique in Paris and talked to him about how watches resulted from the nexus of his interests, including technology, fashion, craftmanship, jewelry, and business, to name a few.
We also discussed what makes Hegid unique and how its System Evolutive came into being. We also touched on the changing landscape in watchmaking, his recent collaboration with Hervet Manufacturier for the Celeste line, and some of the plans for the brand's future.
It was a delightful and insightful conversation. I think Emeric and Hegid will continue creating great things, and I cannot wait to see what they do next.
Do not miss this conversation; I am confident you will enjoy it!
