« I am not a trend follower, I just do what I like, the way I like it and feel it »

« Singularity defines who I am, how I think and envision watchmaking. For me it means what makes something unique and amazing in their own way like our timepieces.

Craftsmanships is the origin of my passion, a deep sense of purpose, a commitment to perpetuating the watchmaking legacy and excellence over time, crafting enduring timepieces made of restorable components.

I like the pleasure of beauty in craftsmanship, reflecting my love for handmade quality and inspired by the technical and decorative elegance of French horology in the 18th-19th centuries, and its commitment to aesthetic and mechanical perfection.

This is my watchmaking approach, blending inspiration from the past with modern techniques. It’s about creating singular things. »
