When he inherited his grandfather’s pocket watch, the story began. When he read a book about the diverse sound patterns of the most varied watch escapements, the seed was finally sown. Consequently, his first self-made watch was already equipped with a special escapement.

Based on his years of experience and still working as a constructor for multinational watch brands, he is now launching a unique collection of watches with significant escapements, starting with the further development of the famous George Daniels escapement, which he has made suitable for everyday use for the first time.
