Tina Maze, Caroline Scheufele, Caroline Dechamby & Helen Molesworth

Sochi Olympics double gold medallist, Tina Maze has become an ambassador for Alpina watches. The Slovenian skier has a track record featuring 23 victories, 68 podiums and the unrivaled record of 2,414 points in a single downhill skiing season. This bodes well for the new Comtesse collection for which she is now the muse!


Caroline Scheufele, co-president of Chopard, was honored by the Fashion 4 Development (F4D) in New York in September during the annual First Ladies Luncheon, for her role as the initiator of Chopard’s commitment to sustainable luxury. This movement brings together 40 First Ladies, diplomats, VIPs in the world of fashion and opinion leaders in the realm of cooperation between fashion and diplomacy on behalf of women and children’s well-being across the world.


A daring artist as well as a jet-set accessories specialist, Caroline Dechamby exhibits her painted handbags and one-off watches featuring conspicuously feminine curves in luxury capitals, and this winter in her Crans Montana gallery. Highly original gold cases set the stage for naked silhouettes clothed in precious stones and attentively bent over multi-colored dials evoking nature themes.



On a special visit to Switzerland from Hong Kong in the framework of the Gübelin Academy she has been heading for the past two years, charismatic gemmologist, Helen Molesworth, shared her expertise with clients and fans of diamonds and precious stones at the Gübelin boutiques in Geneva and Zurich, during a seminar at the beginning of November. This jewelry historian worked for Christie’s and Sotheby’s for ten years in Geneva and London. Follow on www.gubelin-academy.com.
