Son of a french watchmaker and having spent a lot of time on his workbench since childhood, I first discovered the fascinating profession of watchmaker by his side. Captivated by his work and convinced that it was for me a vocation; it is naturally that I joined the watchmaking school of Morteau.

Once graduated in 1998, it followed years of practice in discrete restoration workshops or large watchmaking factories that allowed me to forge a solid experience working on complications and prototyping.

In 2018, I set up my workshop in the small town of Ste-Croix, and dedicate all my time to the realization of high-end watches. To satisfy my quest for a qualitative and practical handcrafted watchmaking in accordance with my values.

I started my independent career with the realization of a monopusher chronograph, presented in 2018 and which allowed me to be laureate of the competition, Meilleur
ouvrier de France the same year. This realization allowed me to master the design and manufacturing in my workshop.

After 3 years of creation and development, I present the Origine, a threehander watch that I wanted to be elegant and timeless. This watch is awared by the « Horological Revelation » prize at the 2022 GPHG.
