In the summer of 1998, having both earned our watchmaker diplomas, we both decided to continue our studies. Johan continued his training in two different branches: he started with a degree as a restoration technician at the International Museum of Watchmaking of La Chaux-de-Fonds, and he later got a degree as a watchmaking construction technician. Bastien started by getting a professional technical maturity, which allowed him to get into the University of Applied Arts of La Chaux-de-Fonds, where he earned his degree in industrial design.
10 years after we met, while sharing a nice meal on the evening of Thursday December 30th 2004, we made a promise to one-day work together as independent watchmakers. The years that followed showed us that our friendship was real and durable, and that we would really be able to work together, and at the same time they allowed us to gain quite a lot of experience in the world of watchmaking.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
