17-year-old youth, what kind of dream do you have? Want to enter the ideal university, make your own music path, study abroad, or what? And she chooses the most demanding training, constantly challenges the limits of her body, and dances her life with her toes. Her name is Carolyne Galvao, a young ballet dancer from Brazil.
She is only 17 years old, and with her strong dancing skills, she became one of the winners of the Lausanne International Ballet Contest 2018 and was voted as the most popular dancer. Carolyne’s talent for dancing has impressed Amy Long. The Amy Long brand is very proud to support this young dancer to help her pursue her ballet dream. The artistic beauty created by watchmaking is actually similar to the performing arts pursued by ballet. In order to integrate the beauty of ballet and watchmaking, the Amyron brand invited Carolyne to the Amyron factory to experience the artistic charm of watchmaking.
The new Emilion watch factory is located in the Merlin district of Geneva, next to the Swiss Watchmaking Foundation office. It has a group of skilled watchmakers with advanced watchmaking and quality inspection equipment. The brand’s fusion of Swiss watchmaking and contemporary aesthetics is realized here, and the proud self-produced movement, hairspring and balance wheel are also produced here.
Time is as tender as ballet
Carolyne Galvao has been dancing ballet since she was nine years old. In her opinion, the attraction of ballet is not only to beautifully dance every movement, but also to interpret the emotions of the characters and perform every move of the plot. When visiting the Emilon watch factory, she was also attracted by the story of time.
The Emilion brand dates back to the end of the 17th century. At that time, Emile Chouriet, a famous watchmaker in Geneva, and his partner François Dagobert Dupéry (ancestor of Mr. Dubili) created a small watch workshop on the shore of Lake Geneva, and the brand was named Emilon Because the name emphasizes the union of talent and craftsmanship, it is also a tribute to ancestors and master watchmaker Amy Long.
On the stage, ballet dancers interpret emotions; here, time conveys tenderness through watches.
Carolyne is also surprised by the precise technology and manual skills contained in the watch. Most of the time, Carolyne is undergoing arduous training. On the stage, seemingly gentle body movements, but require precise strength and balance, which depends on ballet Love and ten years of persistence. In fact, this is exactly the quality that watchmakers must have, looking at the desk at the slightest possible, just because time does not slip at the fingertips.
The most attractive aspect of watchmaking is that each part is transformed into a part of time by the hands of the watchmaker. When the balance spring is suspended gently, the machine seems to have life and starts ticking. Under the guidance of the master watchmaker Emilon, Carolyne was addicted to a watchmaker. When the last part was installed and the hands began to rotate freely, her joy overflowed with words. This is more like a fingertip ballet. Every action must be in place. Every strength needs to be precise. It is a contest with precision in the slow and precise installation.
Time starts to spin gracefully
The beauty of ballet is pleasing in rotation and jumping, while the exquisite time is appreciated in the rotation of hands. The moment the second hand is pressed, the watch also shines, and time begins to rotate gracefully above the dial.
At the Emilion watch factory, Carolyne wore the ballet skirt when the 2018 Lausanne International Ballet Contest was awarded, and wore the Emilion Jingya series watch to perform charming and elegant moments.
Amy Long supports ballet art for a long time, and has the honor to become the official sponsor of the International Ballet Competition in Lausanne, participate in the discovery of potential ballet dancers, and contribute their enthusiasm and strength for the development of ballet art.
