1921-2021. All over the world, the French-speaking world multiplies tributes. Frédéric Dard is buried in his village of St-Chef, between Geneva and Lyon. This man who had been flayed by life used to publish his detective stories under the pseudonym of San-Antonio.

San Antonio, an uncategorizable literary legend
My father wrote novels that used to be sold in railway stations, so I wanted a watch that could be as affordable as his pocket books,” explains Joséphine Dard, eager to allow all lovers of her late father Frédéric Dard to acquire this collector’s piece, available in three versions. “In no way, it is a commercial operation” she emphasizes. In fact, the benefits of this exceptional sale will be entirely donated to the Association of the Friends of San-Antonio, which has a loyal following and is showing a unique dynamism.

Frédéric Dard, from the top of his 175 books, had invented his own writing, full of neologisms and humour, of franchouillardises, of gallows-style sauciness and of dirty tricks sometimes as daring as his excellent spoonerisms. At the middle of his characters gallery full of truculence and Rabelaisian portraits, the Police Inspector named San Antonio, was playing a sort of French James Bond

Thanks to the code SA1921, a 30% discount on the regular price of this ‘memoriam’ timepiece is offered by the legendary Mathey-Tissot brand.
