OUR STORY

A matter of taste,

a matter of family.

“Joseph and Bonnie were my grandparents.

Grandparents I saw throughout my childhood, and who weren’t surrounded by a lot of things, but by beautiful things.

Gabriel Vachette

 

Founded by the creator of the french online magazine called “Les Rhabilleurs”, Joseph Bonnie is above all the result from a simple observation: a lack of quality products not only within the watchmaking sector, but in the world that surrounds it.

 Out of this conclusion was born a burning desire to share with you all beautiful, timeless and authentic objects, designed for daily use, and much much more…

WHY “JOSEPH BONNIE” ?

As you may already know, the magazine Les Rhabilleurs can be traced back to a story of family and heritage.

A passion for watches was passed down from father to son, when Joseph bestowed his Universal Genève chronograph to his son Patrick. As a result, Patrick became a passionate collector, enamoured with watchmaking, and passed it down to his son Gabriel, who eventually found “Les Rhabilleurs.”

 

Always impeccably dressed and with a cigar in his mouth, Joseph had a wife nicknamed “Bonnie.” One day behind the wheel of her British green MG-B, the next day busy refining her artistic talents between the countryside and Paris, she and her husband shared the same tasteful attention to detail that now characterizes the creations of “Joseph Bonnie.”
