Faleceu um dos veteranos do jornalismo horológico - Eric Othenin-Girard


Soubemos hoje, sem grandes pormenores. Faleceu um dos deões do jornalismo especializado em relojoaria - Eric Othenin-Girard. Convivemos com ele ao longo de mais de 3 décadas, nos mais variados pontos do mundo onde o trabalho nos levava... RIP.

Do Watchonista:

Born in one of the original birthplaces of international watchmaking, the Neuchâtel mountains, Othenin-Girard and his vision are intimately rooted in the Swiss collective unconscious. Having first served as reporter-at-large in Southeast Asia, Vietnam and the Middle East, he went on to become editor-in-chief for French-speaking news programmes on Swiss radio. His first foray into Baselworld dates from 1971 and he hasn't missed a fair since! A true professional, adept at the challenges of live appearances, Othenin-Girard has a talent for making even the toughest issues lively and accessible. Having defined the editorial lines of several leading watchmaking magazines, including Movment, or The Watches Magazine, the highly reputed journalist went on to found the Swiss federal diploma for watch sales, as well as the "Watch Sales Academy". He now travels the world training others in these skills, contributing, through the dispatch of pertinent fact-finding missions, to the international reach and renown of Watchonista.

Native de l’un des berceaux de l’horlogerie mondiale, les montagnes neuchâteloises, sa voix appartient définitivement à l’inconscient collectif national : Eric Othenin-Girard sera rédacteur en chef pour la radio suisse des journaux d’information francophones après avoir sévi comme grand reporter en Asie du Sud-Est, au Vietnam et au Moyen-Orient. Son premier Baselworld – il n’en manquera pas un – remonte à 1971 ! Ce pro des lives périlleux sait rendre accessibles et vibrants les sujets ardus. A l’origine de lignes éditoriales de magazines horlogers phare, Movment ou The Watches Magazine, ce journaliste vénéré fonde le brevet fédéral de vente en horlogerie ainsi que la «Watch Sales Academy». Du monde qu’il parcourt désormais en formateur, il contribue par ses envois de sujets au rayonnement international de Watchonista.
