Born in India and brought up mostly abroad by a French father and a Spanish mother, Sharmila received her first watch – a Casio – from her parents when she turned 7 and started a Swatch collection at the age of 12. After spending her teenage years in Argentina, she came back to Paris to study translation, marketing and international commerce, worked in advertising and luxury industry before moving to Switzerland. Her journey as a watchmaking amateur begun at Omega HQ where she spent 3 years in the Sales Department and bought her first “real“ watch, and led her to trade journalism in 2011. Though she truly appreciates artistic and poetic timepieces, loves history and is mostly driven by her emotions, this mother of two has a weak spot for Jaquet Droz. Being able to communicate this passion to her teenage daughter is undoubtedly her biggest pride.
