EVENTS

Meet the watchmakers that conceived, designed and created such beautiful pieces of mechanical art. Listen, watch and understand the meaning and of each timepiece directly from the artists.

MEMBERS

While big luxury groups have industrialised watchmaking, we break, then reconstruct the rules of watchmaking every time we create a new timepiece. Our art is unmistakably singular and exclusive.

In 2021, AHCI counts 31 watch and clock makers, 5 candidates and 18 former members from 16 countries, each one with a different interpretation of the art of watchmaking.

PARTNERING

The industrialisation of watchmaking transforms unique art into a mass-market commodity, converting watchmakers into anonymous components of an endless production line.

Help keep watchmaking art alive.
