WELCOME!

The Saint Barth Weekly
is happy to be back for its
third season. The Weekly
is designed for you, to
help you put your finger
on the pulse of the local

stories of our French
newspaper "Le Journal
de Saint Barth", as well
as original articles in
English, the Saint-Barth
Weekly is the only com-
pletely English-language
newspaper on the island.
It comes out every Friday
from November through
the end of July. Our most
exciting news is that each
Friday, The Weekly is
also available on line at
Saint-Barth Online
(www.st-barths.com), the
wonderful web site that
our friends Laurence and
Peter O'Keefe created in
1996. Thanks to them,

every edition of the Saint-
Barth Weekly, so that no
matter where you are in
the world, you can stay in

PEOPLE WATCH


1 "Weekly" look at interesting
island residents and guests


Jean-Pierre Hennequet


Walking by antique stores on
his way to school, Jean-
Pierre Hennequet must have
been more observant than the average
schoolboy, as his future was shaped by
what he saw in the store windows. Fas-
cinated by antiques from around the
world, he began to purchase objects
from Africa when he did his military
service in the Ivory Coast, from 1970-
72. By the time he opened his first shop,
Galerie Asie, on the left bank of Paris
(Boulevard Saint Germain) in 1974, he
had already been to China, and would
soon visit almost every country in Asia,
getting official permission to export
objects over 100 years old.
"You have to have an eye for what is
authentic," Hennequet admits, sitting in
his newest Galerie Asie, right in the
heart of Gustavia. Objects of metal,
stone and wood, as well as textiles, fill
the gallery, including ancient statues of
Buddha, perhaps carbon-dated to verify
their age. "Sometimes you find things
hidden inside of the statues, such as pre-
cious stones," notes Hennequet. "The
Buddha was often a gift to a monk or a
monastery, and they come in many dif-
ferent styles, from small simple ones to
a large gold-plated one, depending on
the person presenting the gift. People
also had small altars at home with a
Buddha for personal prayer."
While the gallery is a treasure trove of
unusual objects, Hennequet also has


access to an Ali Baba's cave of items he
will happily show you on his computer.
From a carved wooden Asmat paddle to
Chinese furniture, Hennequet admits
that the choice of what to buy is very
personal. "Sometimes it's love at first
sight. I look at the beauty of the object,
the quality of the workmanship, the bal-
ance of the style, and the personality of
the piece," he explains. "Some of these
pieces are over 2000 years old. If you
own them, you have to be happy to see
them every morning." His expertise in
the area of Asian antiques prompted the
department store, Galeries L.i,)i.iic, in
Paris to ask him to curate a special exhi-
bition on the Indonesian archipelago; an
exhibit that was later hosted by other
stores across Europe.
Hennequet came to Saint Barth for the
first time in 1979, on vacation, and
returned as a tourist several times,
before returning in 2004 to open the
boutique, Victoire, in Gustavia, with
some friends. "The island is magical
and this time, I decided to ,\.1)," he says.
In addition to the art and culture of Asia,
Hennequet is now interested in the West
Indies as well, and his shop will soon
offer a collection of antique books about
the islands, in French as well as English.
And who knows what other treasures
this unusual collector will add to his
shelves, as Galerie Asie takes on a new
personality suited to the tropics.

Like Saint Barth Cetaceans,

watch the whales migrate


At first glance, the
role St. Barth
Cetaceans has
played in the cycle of pro-
tection for the humpback
whale might seem minimal.
Yet, thanks to the steadfast
efforts of this association
and a few other Caribbean
organizations like it,
researchers at the Ameri-
can-based International
Fund for Animal Welfare
are ,.9iII'cin, supplemen-
tary information about
these giant marine mam-

mals now threatened by
extinction. Their informa-
tion are also sent to the
association Evasion Tropi-
cale in Guadeloupe.
Each year, from January to
June, during the period
commonly referred to as
"whale season", the mem-
bers of St. Barth Cetaceans,
a volunteer group, spend
their free time scouting and
photographing as many
Megaptera Novaengeliae,
or humpback whales, as
possible. "We sight approx-
imately 100 humpbacks
each year, 15% of which
are newborns," explains
Arnaud Apremont, founder
of the association that was
created in 1996. "After
counting them, we take
photographs that allow for
their identification. Each
whale has individual char-
acteristics like their color-
ing, scarring, and shape. Of
these traits, the tail is the
most definitive marker,
because it is as unique as a
fingerprint. Once wefve
photographed the whales,
we send the images to the
IFAW. They, in turn, com-
pare our photos with others
that have been sent in from
surrounding islands. This
allows them to track the
migratory path of hump-
backs and get a better idea
of their number. Presently,
the IFAW estimates that
there are around 7,000
humpback whales living in
the Western Atlantic."


The humpback whales that
can be observed in St.
Barth belong to a herd that
migrates from the cold
waters of Canada to the
warmer waters of the


southern Antilles where
they mate and reproduce. A
second herd that can also
be seen in passing comes
from the Northern Atlantic.
These whales make their
home in the North Pole and
migrate to the Dominican
Republic, in Samanna Bay,
to reproduce. The presence
of newborn whales con-
firms the assertion that
herds migrate through St.
Barth during the return por-
tion of their trip. "Some
researchers think that
whales choose a more
coastal route protect their
newborn from potential
ocean predators. But
there's no certainty, says
Apremont. When migrating
through, whales have no
particular itinerary. They


can travel to the west or
east of St. Barth but almost
never stop. March and
April are the months where
their migration through the
island is the most frequent.
Paradoxically, and despite
the fact that observation
can provide precious infor-
mation, it can also force
whales to change their
course. How can you show
a whale you respect it
should you happen to see
one? Respect its territorial
space and keep a safe dis-
tance. Remember, the
ocean is its home and
you're a visitor".
For more information
about the whales and their
migration, contact the St.
Barth Cetaceans associa-
tion. Tel. 06.90.59.80.93

Creation of a municipal sanitation service

for water treatment


In compliance with a law
from 1996, a municipal
service was opened in
early January specifically to
deal with the issue of water
treatment in the many
homes on the island. One of
its goals is a thorough
examination of all drainage
systems that exist on the
island, at three different lev-
els: when a building is
designed, when it is built,
and systems already in use
in every home.
During the design
phase
The water sanitation service
will look at all building per-
mits that are requested to
make sure that the drainage
system planned conforms
to the new standards set in

France. The basic principal
is as follows: pre-treatment
of used water and treatment
of drains with bacteria that
"eat" organic material
before any water is allowed
to seep into the ground.
Houses built beforel996
are not concerned by the
new law, as long as their
drainages system don't
cause any problems, yet the
renovation of such houses
must meet the new stan-
dards. In the case of reno-
vation, or work to the
drainage system, a repre-
sentative from the munici-
pal office will ensure that
the existing system is ade-
quate. If not, the owner will
be obliged to install a new
system that meets current
norms.

COwin ai'


During building
To prevent differences
between what is called for
on the building permit and
that which is actually
installed, the law calls for a
control to be exercised while
the drainage system is being
built. The representative
from the sanitation service
will visit building sites to
make sure such systems
conform to building permits:
"the b.cI lii h is to call us in
when the work starts, the
earliest as possible in order
to avoid mistakes, and/or
cause work to be redone,"
explains Sophie Olivaud,
director of the service.
Existing houses
On paper, the municipality
is required to control the
drainage systems.... of
every house on the island!
But in terms of the Her-
culean task that this job rep-
resents, for the time being,
certain priorities have been
established: "First we will
control all houses near

CAUGHT WITH
4.93 GRAMS
OF ALCOHOL IN
THE BLOODSTREAM
In early January, a man in a
state of drunkenness was
driving his car through Gus-
tavia. He was driving while
dragging a block of con-
crete that created sparks and
made a terrible noise along
the road. He drove for sev-
eral hundred yards before a
local resident managed to
remove the key from the
dashboard, right in the mid-
dle of town. The police


swimming areas and near
protected zones for the
marine park. That's what we
just did in Marigot. Com-
plaints allowed us to verify
certain systems that were
not adequate."
A major environmental
issue
It will be hard for a home-
owner to hear that the
drainage system used for 20
years is no longer appropri-
ate. "Times have changed,
as have the levels of water
consumption," explains Oli-
vaud. People use much
more water today then they
did 20 years ago, and there
has been a continual
increase in the number of
chemical products used in
households. The result:
"there is more dirty water
and it contains more pollu-
tion than it did 20 years ago.
That's why it's so important
to verify the systems."
Especially since Saint Barth
wishes to protect its envi-
ronment, one of its major
tourist attractions.

his driver's license taken

Mauro Giovannetti's Glittering Jewels


Cascades of diamonds, pearls
and precious stones, or fine
cut gems in innovative set-
tings, characterize the one-of-a-kind,
hand-made pieces in the Giovannetti
jewelry collection currently on dis-
play at Carat in Gustavia. Created by
jewelry designer Mauro Giovannetti,
the third generation in a family of
jewelers, these unique pieces are a
blend of classic and contemporary
design, perfect for the discerning
modern woman who wants to collect
unique items whose style will last a
lifetime.

The jewelry is all created in Rome,
where 20 artisans turn Mauro's
designs into unique handcrafted
pieces of jewelry. He notes that 99%
of his designs are for women, but
that Giorgio Armani bought one of
his gold bracelets." Some of the ear-

that they can be worn in different
ways. A long white gold and pearl
necklace can be taken apart and worn
as a choker and bracelet, or one sec-
tion can hang as a pendant. A beauti-
ful pair of earrings can be worn as
long pendants, with bunches of tiny
violet sapphires that sparkle like sug-
ar hanging down almost to the shoul-
der, or shortened to wear closer to the
ear. Other pieces combine emeralds
and pink pearls, chocolate pearls
from Tahiti and diamonds, or red
tourmaline and white pearls. One of
his signature pieces is a necklace he
calls "Emotion," with emeralds,
white diamonds, white gold, and
Japanese pearls, while the "Niagara"
pendant (inspired by Niagara Falls)
features a cascade of rubies with
black and white diamonds set in
blackened white gold.

ROGER DUBUIS WATCHES IN SAINT BARTH


ne of the only
watch companies in
the world to make
magnificent, hand-crafted
watches whose movements
confirm to the stringent
Geneva Seal criteria, Swiss
watchmaker Roger Dubuis
makes the most extraordi-
naire timepieces, a collec-
tion of which are on dis-
play at Time in Gustavia.
"There are three great
things about these watch-
es," says Roger Dubuis NA
representative Phillip Ogle,
who is on the island to help
promote the collection in
January. He lists "perfec-
tion, tradition, and exclu-
sivity," as well as contem-
porary design as the assets
that make the Roger
Dubuis "the single most
exclusive brand on the
market today," referring to
the fact that each timepiece


is hand-crafted by a highly
skilled watchmaker. Pre-
cious materials as hand-
painted enamel, mother-of-
pearl, diamonds, and gold
give each watch a unique
design, and no more than
28 examples of each watch
are made for the worldwide
market. "The Geneva Seal
criteria were established by
the Swiss government in
the 1880s," explains Ogle
(who points out that
Philippe Patek watches also
meet these criteria). "The
Roger Dubuis watches are
made in the traditional
Swiss manner yet with a
contemporary aesthetic.
The watches are entirely
manufactured and assem-
bled in the Swiss canton of
Geneva." Ogle also points
out that it can take up to
one year to complete the
manufacture of one watch.
"The watchmakers are in


the relentless purs.il I.I
perfection," he n(I.c,
"Every one of th,. -\
watches is like a wci k
of art." From a hand
painted enamel dial
with Ferrari racecar\
to an elegant dia-
mond studded
women's watch, the
collection is an eye-
watering delight.
Co-founded by
Roger Dubuis
himself and com-
pany president
Carlos Dias, the
brand has developedl I.', c
38 watch calibers in the 10
years of its existence, from
manual wind to the popular
tourbillion and very com-
plex movements. Many of
the watches have large
dials, and as Ogle notes,
"these are not like the
watches our grandfathers
wore." This is the second

touch them careful-
ly, wearing a black cotton
glove to avoid any scratch-
es. From large Roman
numerals set in mother-of-
pearl to a "love" model
with a heart of diamonds, a
Roger Dubuis watch is the
perfect gift of time.
