Bernard Favre was born and grew up in the Canton of Neuchatel in Switzerland, the heartland of fine watchmaking. As a child he was always interested in any mechanical items and as a teenager rebuilt a TVR, an iconic English sports car. After studying at Music Conservatory in Zurich, with a view to being a professional musician (drums were his passion), he decided that he enjoyed music more when he was playing purely for pleasure rather than money and transitioned to a successful career in sales.
For over 20 years, Bernard Favre, an accomplished Swiss craftsman, has been lending his skills to the high end Swiss watch industry. Inventor, creator and producer of tailor-made accessories, he has been working with some of the most famous names in Swiss watchmaking. His experience provided him with an excellent insight into the value of a watch and how best to enhance it.
In 2009, he designed and developed the PLANET, a watch winder for luxury watches, which he unveiled to the world on 19th April 2011. This exclusive product combines functionality with innovative design and the highest quality. Beautifully crafted, it is accessible to a wide audience whilst never deviating from the principles of fine watchmaking.
Rigorous and meticulous, Bernard Favre has been working for many years with the most skilled local craftsmen, who are all driven by the same passion. Combined, these talents keep traditional values alive. This collaboration alone can ensure his sophisticated craftsmanship boasts a high-quality finish and guarantees customer satisfaction.
