Combining the old with the new, Benoît de Gorski forges ahead with the creative vision of his daughter Constance de Gorski.
Watchmaking and jewellery runs in the family blood.
My grand father Constantin de Gorski was Baume&Mercier boss from 1947 to 1958, my great-grand father Carlo Ponti a Jeweller in Italy and my great great grand father Jules Perrier, administrator of Patek Philippe, they showed the way to my father who started as a watchmaker for Longines aged 18.
He decided to found his own brand BENOIT DE GORSKI in 1980, creating high jewellery pieces for a knowledgeable and tasteful international clientele.
He immediately understood the importance of watches and multi brands boutiques, allowing clients to diversify.
With a trained eye and his taste, my dad was discovering brands before they became renowned, like Blancpain, Ebel, Gerald Genta, and Hublot.
Bédat & co was discussed and concerted before it was even born, Christian Bédat, the founder, being a family friend, my father even designed the hands of the dials. And we were, in 1997, the first boutique to present the collection, selling almost one per day.
I am proud to continue my family heritage, and so happy to have the support and friendship of all the brands I present in my boutique.
