LES CRE­A­TEURS DU TEMPS (2004) Kazuyuki Taka­hashi For: Tra­di­tional-watch­mak­ing fans with no time to read.

The Peak Selections: Timepieces - - Force Of Mo­tion -

A book of over 100 im­ages shot by Ja­pa­nese pho­tog­ra­pher Kazuyuki Taka­hashi who also does com­mer­cial shoots for watch brands, Les Cre­a­teurs du Temps (French for “the cre­ators of time”) cov­ers the work of Philippe Du­four and Daniel Roth.

Both based in the vil­lage of Le Sen­tier in the Vallee de Joux, the his­toric cra­dle of Swiss watch­mak­ing, Philippe Du­four and Daniel Roth are two of the most ac­com­plished watch­mak­ers alive to­day. Each pro­duces time­pieces that ad­here to the finest tra­di­tions of crafts­man­ship, with a tremen­dous de­gree of ef­fort ded­i­cated to hand-fin­ish­ing. Taka­hashi’s book doc­u­ments their work and also the in­de­scrib­able spirit of craft and in­dus­try in the snowy moun­tains.
