Born in Bern in 1959, Pierre Kunz has been in the watchmaking business for over 20 years. Kunz first studied at the Watchmaking School of the Vallee de Joux, where he absorbed the values that provided this region of watchmaking with a reputation of excellence. Kunz’s interest for grand complications developed from his time spent restoring antique clocks. Pierre Kunz’s passion for watchmaking eventually led to his pioneering of complicated watches featuring multiple retrograde functions. Kunz’s outstanding craftsmanship allows him to combine tradition and modernity and create timepieces that are both contemporary and traditional at once.
