Victoria Townsend has recently joined the Haute Time team to start the Paris operation. Born and raised in Canada, a French Literature major at McGill University in Montreal, Victoria has spent much of her life abroad, in Monaco and several Gulf states, where she worked with ad agencies, as well as edited and read the evening news on English language TVs. Settled in Neuilly-sur-Seine just outside Paris, she writes for Middle East–based business and lifestyle magazines, covering perfumes, cosmetics and timepieces. Fascinated by poetic movements, she also appreciates the pure aesthetics of a thin case with a simple dial. You can often find her walking around her favorite areas of old Paris during the weekend, exploring art galleries and discovering new cobbled streets.
Lindbergh was 25 years old, the year was 1927, the time 10:22, his flight was timed by Longines, and a legend was born.
