Estelle Lagarde & Thomas Baillod: A Friendship That Inspires Lagarde recalls her first encounter with Thomas Baillod in 2019 as a gift on her journey. He inspired her, reassured her, and fueled her belief in the possible. This strong bond led to a successful collaboration, with Estelle creating visuals for Chapter 4.1 The Veblen Dilemma Tourbillon and the brand's first women's complicated watch, Chapter 4.2 Lily Tourbillon. Now, she's thrilled to join forces once more for the CHPTR_Δ launch!
Lire et Écrire Association: Empowering Adults Through Literacy In Switzerland, 1 in 6 people struggle with basic skills. Founded in 1988, the Lire et Écrire Association offers crucial reading and writing courses for adults, promoting self-sufficiency and freedom.
Initially, Thomas Baillod's business model wasn't meant to become a brand. But now, BA111OD is making its mark in horology, redefining time with its first manufactured complication. This innovative approach to timekeeping echoes the Lire et Écrire Association's mission to empower individuals by helping them gain autonomy—because knowing how to read and write truly is freedom! ✍️🕊️
