A parallel Worlds

Sunday February 25 2007 / MB&F


Serge has been the Managing Director of G.F. Châtelain, MB&F's case maker, for over 4 years and is one of the most competitive persons I know. I have had the privilege of working with him at Harry Winston between 2000 and 2002. His drive, allied with his exceptional skills, allow him to achieve virtually everything he sets his mind to. Serge is a great example to many of us !

Sport has always been a crucial part of Serge's life. In his twenties he set his mind on competing in the World go-kart championship … and he did. In his thirties he took up triathlon and finished in the first quarter in his category of the triathlon of Nice long distance (today considered as an Iron Man). Recently, on turning forty, Serge thinks, “Well, why not take up motor racing?”
Serge entered the 2005 C2 GT car championship at the middle of the season with his 1995 Porsche 993 SuperCup and finished Champion at the end of the year. In 2006, he did it again having won 6 out of the 7 races he entered in!

Now knowing a little of Serge's background, you can imagine the flame in his eye when I put the first four Horological Machine projects on his table! He just cannot resist a challenge!
