On last Wednesday, February 21, I had the great honour of welcoming the Canal Alpha TV team who gave me the portrait for their program entitled "Avis de passage".
At 18, after my Jeweler studies from the Chaux-de-Fonds Art School, I had the opportunity during the first four years of my professional life to be trained with the best jewelry craftsmen in the Neuchâtel region. They taught me the rigour and listening to the slightest wishes of customers while scrupulously respecting our craft and its material.
Curious by nature, the watchmaking world then opened up to me, with DNA as its watchwords, value and respect for traditions.
It was by first filing watch cases in the prototype workshop of Herbert & Charlie, two admirable characters, that I learned to understand this very special world. In turn, I then moved on to become Designer Watchmaker and then Product Manager for various brands of the Swatch Group.
Almost ten years of service with this Great House, both for its physical dimension and for that of the heart.
With this most enriching experience, meeting all the teams that make the hearts of these emblematic companies beat faster, I decided to take back my file in hand!
Today, at 37 years old and after three years of experience with my former activity at L&O Bijoux de Famille in the old town of Bienne, it was time for me to start my path towards independence with Mademoiselle O.
I now welcome you to my workshop near the Place du Marché in La Chaux-de-Fonds, in the company of my dog Lola, who is never far from the workbench!
We look forward to meeting you!
