ROMAIN VOLLET was born in 1979 in the Geneva region. Graduated in Applied Arts in Paris, he continued his studies in Industrial Design in England, then in Italy, before settling in Paris in 2002.
After many years of collaboration with well-known brands, he moved to Geneva in 2015 to launch his own watch line. With his first collection, ROMAIN VOLLET gives his personal vision of watchmaking.
By redefining and broadening the codes, he imposes a contemporary style that combines the rigor of the watch classicism and the alternative energy of an independent culture.
In reflection of its time, the elegance is revealed through a refined and sharp design, a robust mechanism and noble material, which provide ROMAIN VOLLET timepieces character and quality.
The designer chose the skull, a true symbol of freedom and non-conformism, to embody a contemporary and rock vision of the watchmaking world.
This vanity has a strong visual power with a finely perforated and laminated dial. It subtly reveals the parts of this timepiece and one can admire its skeleton mechanical movement.
At the back, on the rotor, the famous Bob Dylan song entitled « Forever Young » is engraved as a leitmotiv. This hymn to life reminds us, like a memento mori, the importance of fully enjoying every moment.
“If the symbolism of vanities is so much present today in our society, it’s because we feel the need to be aware of the meaning of life: to be reconnected with time; the simple things; and the value of existence.”
explains ROMAIN VOLLET.
Motor Skull is available in Stainless Steel, Black PVD coated stainless steel and Red Gold.
