From the 1998 World Cup, her first big event, to SIHH and Baselworld today, she reports from where the action is.
Mathilde Binetruy studied journalism in Paris. She began her career as a sports writer, relishing the opportunities this brought to meet new people and discover often distant places. In 2001 she joined the communication department at Jaeger-LeCoultre, an experience that taught her an appreciation of fine mechanics. After a stint at Edipresse Luxe between 2008 and 2010, followed by a year with Bureau d’Information et de Presse Horlogère, in 2012 she decided to go freelance.
The things she most enjoys about her job? Having a story to tell, trying something first-hand (except watchmaking classes, too many lost parts!), meeting people who lead fascinating lives – watchmakers, CEOs, craftsmen, designers – and sharing these stories with readers. When she isn’t working, Mathilde can be found downing immoderate amounts of café latte, often in a departure lounge somewhere.
