Space Gallery x Winter Show

Space Gallery is hosting a contemporary art show, showcasing its newest artists, Alighiero Boetti, Christo, Manolo Valdés, Tony Cragg, and Vera Lutter. The Winter Show is live at their New York City location in Soho as well as their flagship gallery in St Barth.


Alighiero Boetti
Boetti was a champion of the ballpoint pen. Boetti made a number of vast works in minutely scrawled biro, such as I sei sensi (The Six Senses), which is part of a series of drawings done in code. The overall effect of the ‘Lavori Biro’ works tends to be gorgeously uneven, resulting in rich expanses of deep blues and greens with gradations and patterns within. Often they recall a sea or night sky.

Christo and the Wrapped Reichstag
Christo described the Reichstag wrapping as autobiographical. It became symbolic of unified Germany and marked Berlin’s return as a world city. The Guardian posthumously described the work as the pair’s “most spectacular achievement”.

Manolo Valdés
One of the most internationally established contemporary Spanish painter, sculptor and draughtsman, Manolo Valdés was born in Valencia in 1942. He attended the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Carlos de Valencia. He began his career in the 1960s as one of the founding members of Equipo Cronica. A group of artists who took inspiration from Pop Art to challenge the Spanish dictatorship of Franco and the History of Art itself.

Tony Cragg
Tony Cragg is one of the world’s foremost sculptors. Constantly pushing to find new relations between people and the material world. There is no limit to the materials he might use, as there are no limits to the ideas or forms he might conceive. His early, stacked works present a taxonomical understanding of the world. And he has said that he sees manmade objects as “fossilized keys to a past time which is our present”.

Vera Lutter
Inspired by the city’s presence, light, and architecture, Vera Lutter began experimenting with photography. In order to capture an immediate and direct imprint of her experience; Lutter decided to turn the room in which she lived into a large pinhole camera. Thereby transforming the space that contained her personal experience into the apparatus that would capture an image of it.


Established in 2011, Space Gallery St Barth is a contemporary art gallery. Dedicated to showcasing painting, photography, and sculpture by established and emerging artists. Since its inception, Space Gallery St Barth has built up an impressive roster of artists, curated international exhibitions, and participated in major art fairs including the Venice Biennale. As of today, the gallery has locations in St Barth and New York City and regularly exhibits internationally. The gallery’s location in New York City has been open since November 2018.

Watchdreamer x 4th Anniversary

Geneva, 24 November 2022

Watchdreamer becomes a key player in the watchmaking online distribution.

This year, celebrates its 4th anniversary and its transition from a niche digital start-up to a leader in online watch financing and distribution. A success that can be explained by the relevance of the concept, both for end customers and for partner brands.

In November 2018, Nicolas Hildenbrand, a young creative entrepreneur, founded the start-up, based in Pully. Its goal is simple: to offer the possibility to buy a luxury watch with zero-interest financing, staggered up to 48 monthly payments, at no cost. All 100% online, instantaneous and without unnecessary paperwork.

An immaculate customer service

The advantages for customers are clear. Credit at 0% interest, the response to immediate demand, the access to a vast selection of more than 1600 watches available are a few of the exceptional advantages customers have access to when choosing Watchdreamer. Not to mention the unique flexibility in Europe offered by Watchdreamer, it is the exemplary quality of the service that is acclaimed. The team attends to customers’ needs throughout the entire buying process, namely personalized advice at all times and a fluid, simple and efficient digital platform. 80% of transactions are completed on mobile in a few clicks and watches are generally delivered within 5 working days!

A new distribution channel

By respecting the public prices recommended by brands, granting their official guarantees and offering a real luxury service experience with unparalleled transparency and traceability, Watchdreamer is truly opening up a new distribution channel. Thus, the presence of brands on the platform makes it possible to effectively reach a new, larger, younger, digital-based target, quite distinct and completely complementary to the usual customers of brands and physical retailers.

A Swiss success story

The success confirms the relevance of the business model to the delight of watch connoisseurs and partner brands: more than 3,000 watches already sold in 2022, in Switzerland alone! In the space of 4 years, Watchdreamer has become one of the largest official Swiss retailers (online and offline combined) for many brands, including Hublot and Breitling. Watchdreamer is now the official distributor for more than 20 watch brands. The 2018 start-up has indeed become a key player in watchmaking distribution. And that’s just the beginning.

The future

Watchdreamer continues its development with its distinctive and relevant USP. A new website, more fluid and attractive, will be launched in early 2023. Video content, essential to reach the younger generation will flood the platform and augmented reality will be a main feature. Internationalization is also in the works. New markets will open in 2023, in France and the UK. Watchdreamer is also working on partnerships with jewelry brands to increase their variety. And finally, upon reflection the company is considering a physical presence to complement its online activities… it will obviously be disruptive, unconventional and will offer an experience as fresh as the website has been able to do since its inception.
