Vincent Daveau

Providing Watchonista with exclusive content for its online pages, this watchmaker-cum-repairer and designer, a former history lecturer with a passion for bicycle and watersports, is currently the most-read French-speaking author on the subject of watchmaking! In fact, having served as the chief editor since 2011 on the specialist watch publication of the French magazine, L’Express, the publication with the biggest circulation in the field, Daveau is to the popularisation of technical watchmaking what Gault et Millau is to fine gastronomy. The list of his journalistic exploits is too long for this space: Le Temps, L’Expansion, L’Officiel Voyage and Watch Your Time… A huge fan of the Enlightenment, which provides the leitmotif for his own incredible collection of timekeepers, Daveau is an author in his spare time, having penned "Montres et Stars" and conducted in-depth research into the watchmakers, Arnold and Graham, while remaining a supreme authority on marine timepieces.
