Besançon, a city rich in history, visited for its citadel built by Vauban, the glorious Marshal of France under Louis XIV, has in turn been a military fort, a political centre and a religious capital. At the end of the 18th century, with the arrival of Laurent Mégevand of Geneva, the watch industry was set up in the city and produced 90% of the national demand at the end of the following century with the famous LIP brand. This watch making expertise, dating back over two centuries has converted successfully to the micro technology, precision engineering and nanotechnology.
Lionel and Rachel, graduates from the Morez optical school, opened the Hédou Opticians shop in 1998 in rue Morand before moving in 2006 to 7 rue Moncey in a space more suited to their needs. This couple of opticians has an essential capital, they complement each other which is an obvious advantage for avid customers’ advice. Lionel, the lens technician chose Seiko for the ophthalmic lenses and entrusted Rachel the task of finding accessories. But it is together that they select the most beautiful eyeglasses in the city. This address has to be discovered and adopted.
