Whether exhibitions in Mexico City, Moscow and Tokyo, talks to audiences all over the world or specialist articles, infinite ways exist to give the full measure of time.
Grégory Gardinetti was born May 23rd 1983. After graduating from high school in physics and applied mathematics, he studied history, linguistics and geography at the University of Neuchâtel (Switzerland). In 2006, he joined the internationally renowned Musée International d’Horlogerie in La Chaux-de-Fonds (Switzerland) as an archivist specialising in the history of time measurement, a subject that quickly captured his attention. During his three years at the Museum, Grégory helped stage exhibitions, wrote texts for publication, and conducted research into the history of horology.
In early 2010, he was approached by the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie in Geneva to succeed its expert and historian, who was retiring. Grégory’s main responsibilities are to organise exhibitions on watchmaking around the world, lecture on themes relating to time measurement, write on watches and watchmaking, and approve the historical and scientific content of the Foundation’s website. The Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie exists to promote the culture and expertise of fine watchmaking as widely as possible.
