Watchmaker since 2005

My Journey as a Watchmaker

Originally from Naples, Italy, I always dreamed of becoming a watchmaker. Driven by this passion, I left my family and my native country to dedicate myself to watchmaking.

Thanks to my curious mind and my sense of perfectionism, I successfully passed the watchmaker’s exam at WOSTEP (watchmaking school) in Neuchâtel.
I then began my career with the famous brands Audemars Piguet, F.P. Journe, and Jaeger Lecoultre.

For over 10 years, I acquired a high level of knowledge in various areas of watchmaking, whether it’s repairing quartz, manual, automatic, calendar, chronograph, modern and vintage watches, after-sales service, or restoration. I learned to use different machines like the lathe (Schaublin) and the pointing and measuring machine (Hauser M1) to restore, design, and create parts.
