Lausanne based Swiss luxury watch maker, Olivier Randin unveiled a new watch collection to honour Maurice Béjart, the legendary French and Swiss choreographer . Through its four timepiece collections, it supports the Foundation Maurice Béjart and thus contributes to the perenniality of its heritage.
For the two persons in charge, Olivier Randin and Jean-Marc Moffa, the values transmitted by the choreographer in his ballets are those which the mark wants to promote today. In the contemporary watch making industry, Olivier Randin’s models are the best example of fusion of two universes than are the dance and the clock industry.
