I have come to a point in my professional career and in my life where I wanted to share my passion for watchmaking, my experience and my incredible adventure as a watchmaker with as many people as possible.
Therefore, I decided to create my own website. I wanted it in the form of an autobiography which is the perfect opportunity to cross the boundaries of time and space, to set the record straight and to tell you about my amazing journey in the world of mechanical watchmaking.
I hope you will enjoy this first edition and that you will take pleasure in browsing my site as much as I did in designing it.
I have also decided to keep a blog to express my vision of watchmaking, by commenting on current events with my favorites as well as my outbursts, as well as various columns that will be created over time.
This is a brand-new experience for me and not the least, but I am already looking forward to reading your reactions and comments.
With my warmest greetings.

C est vraiment trop trop bien!!!
Courage pour cette nouvelle aventure!!!
Je me réjouis de lire vos articles et connaître votre avis.
It is a dream timepiece from you. I hope I have a chance to have it one day.
I am pleased that you are opening a new chapter. Congratulations on a new homepage.
Your work has always inspires me, long before the general attention that is now given to independent watchmaking and its protagonists. This is all justified, but it is not new for me personally. In Year 1992, I visit you the for the fist time with Richard Miklosch. Back then, we wer the crazy Germans who wer interested in classic watchmaking.
Those who were looking for Swiss school watches or observatory chronometers were either nostalgic or didn´t know was good. Wer we stupid or were they? buying incomplete movements and the not even intending to complete them because they wer regarded as objects or study was suspect in both Switzerland and Germany. No one wanted tools anyone who wanted to buy more parts than for a watch repair was crazy. You could still go to companies without a customer number and talk watchmakers, i.e. colleagues, and not to a PR sales consultant.
Many of my colleagues didn’t understand that you could visit an watchmaker like Philippe Dufour, was made watch with 3 hands. Daniel Roth sounded like as fashion designer and many thought Gerald Genta was a entertainer in France. In Germany, people liked IWC and Rolex and Cartier was chic. I marvelled at their work, was inspired and convinced to find the right and the right good !
So i am glad that today more colleagues and interested people value what they have made all their lives: Classic Watchmaking !
I wish you a Merry Christmas in the best of health and a successful stat into an new year 2022.
Ce site est très bien fait et c’est un réel plaisir de lire les histoires et les informations.
Est-il prévu de l’étoffer avec des textes permettant l’initiations/découvertes du travail réalisé ?
Par exemple, avec des explications des expériences, des critiques de la technique ou des solution mécanique.
Comme un blog de billets d’humeur horloger.
Cela serait un réel bonheur de pouvoir lire les articles comme si on se trouvait dans l’atelier à écouter le maitre horloger transmettre ses conseils.
Merci pour les pages déjà existantes, je suis certain qu’elles intéresserons beaucoup de monde.
J’ai, depuis tout gamin, une profonde admiration pour le travail incroyable des pionniers de l’horlogerie, pour la conservation de ces savoirs, pour l’habileté, la persévérance, la curiosité, l’inventivité de ces artisans passés, actuels et , je l’espère tellement, futurs…
Je n’ai que les yeux pour admirer ces chefs-d’œuvre et je ne m’en lasserais jamais.
Avec mon profond respect.
Bien à vous.
Very good article. I definitely appreciate this website. Stick with it!
