SWISS INDEPENDENT WATCHMAKING PAVILION

Vincent Calabrese

“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”

Vincent Calabrese is a self-taught, iconoclastic watchmaker. His motor is philosophical, his fuel is mechanical and is recognized world-wide as a “philosopher engineer”.

His creations represent provocative challenges to mechanical traditions in general and to horological traditions in particular. Their number, their diversity and their have earned him international fame as one of the most fertile creative minds in the watch business. Vincent Calabrese’ watch making style enables him to make unique and personalized movements in any shape or form.

His technical features such as the Flying Tourbillon with classic or regulator display are matched by his aesthetic accomplishments, and his extremely complex creations are surprising both for their pure beauty and for their deceptively simple appearance.

He remains even today the only man who has created a hand-crafted watch movement in Platinum 950.
