My first foray into independent work was an intricate Tortoise automaton, made from 18 carat gold, diamonds and sapphires. The time I spent researching, engineering and making the Tortoise fuelled my love for the craft, and it wasn’t long before I starting dreaming of the next step – creating my own watch.
The craft of watchmaking is dying out. We live in a society based on speed and convenience in which it would take you less time to print a wristwatch than it would for me to make a single cog.
But that’s precisely why I do this.
I do it for the art. For the passion, the patience, and the precision that goes into every handmade watch. Into every screw, every cog and every hand that I design, make, polish, and place by hand.
Independent watchmaking is not just doing watches.
It’s a labour of love.
