Bernard Favre is an insatiable explorer, constantly on the lookout for new ideas. His workshop is a veritable experimental laboratory, where projects in the preliminary stages or unique pieces created for renowned clients cohabit. Finding his inspiration in daily life, in contact with nature, the unexpected or in the course of his peregrinations, he does not hesitate to sketch out his ideas by blithely combining cardboard, nails and string to test the merits of his systems. From his technical drawings are born high quality components made by experienced master craftsmen, sharing the same passion for the craft and common values: attention to detail, quality of finish and respect for watchmaking traditions. Assembled in Bernard Favre’s workshop, his creations illustrate the successful combination of “Swiss made” talent and know-how, combining innovation, pure design, technical research and functionality.
A free spirit and visionary, Bernard Favre creates exceptional mechanical objects of great accuracy based on original concepts. Although he is particularly passionate about metal, a legacy of his father, a gold smelter, he favours noble materials such as leather, carbon fibre, glass and wood.
