Francois Delonge is a new customer of Croesus, and in life he is a cook, motorcycle enthusiast and father of three children. He very kindly agreed to answer a few questions about his beautiful watches in an interview to a fellow blog. We wanted to share his experiences and stylish watches he likes to buy and wear.
Well we must say that we have a strong preference for chronographs. For their stylish and sporty side no doubt. Our watches fit our lifestyle, our outfits, or desires. We wanted them to accompany us in our daily life. they follow us everywhere in our daily life routines. This is the aesthetic that we liked and not necessarily the features, because we do not use the chronograph only occasionally. After that, there are details that made me crack particularly on these models, like the beautiful face of my Breitling Super Avenger Chronograph, colors and the lightness of the Bulgari Diagono.
Is mechanical movement very essential for us?
We would not say it is crucial because we did not know enough about mechanical watch to make a fundamental criterion of selection. But it is obvious that if we wanted to offer ourself a beautiful mechanical object, it is because we love this world of precision and because we greatly admire the craft of watchmaking. Our professional environment requires us to be very focused and precise, so we also enjoy finding these qualities in objects perfectly realized and in others, we love when things tend to perfection, and leave no room for to the nearly.
According to Francois Delonge, he had several Lip watches, Swatch skeleton watch, watches and more fancy color to change often, for fun. What he loved with his watch is that he can see the mechanism directly from the dial. But the one that made him dream always is the Breitling Super Avenger. He always promised to himself that one day he will possess. He always knew that he would not jump; it was only a matter of time.
The Breitling brand has always made him attracted towards it. He likes its plush models and style. He knew he would have pretty impressive shows to go with his wrist and his build. So he always chose a stylish and attractive piece for himself.
Francois Delonge says that there are two models that he found really beautiful, and yet they do not have much in common. He saw them both on our site and chose them from here. There is the Richard Mille for the next new watch, apparent mechanism and performance, and the Rolex Daytona. This is because it is a myth, still modern, which he liked the most. Anyway for him, that’s the one and almost single criterion. He want his watch forbid him, and this purchase is a great time of fun. He says that he loved the excitement when he opened the case after buying it. He saw his watch and he passes it on his wrist for the first time.
