I studied watchmaking in the Val-de-Travers and finished my studies at a precarious time in the watch industry, the “Quartz Crisis.” I didn’t want to stop using all the know-how I’d learned over the years by making quartz movements, and too many other manufacturers were already closing because of it, so instead I opened my own repair workshop. At Parmigiani Mesures & Art du Temps, I handled and restored timepieces, clocks, and automatons from hundreds of years ago. I started working on some very special and complicated timepieces for renowned brands, and eventually the Sandoz Family Foundation approached me about opening a Manufacture.
