Nicolas – master watch-maker and visionary entrepreneur – along with the expertise and innovation of CSW, is shaking up the codes of watch-making.
Master watch-maker, Nicolas, is revolutionising the world of watch-making. With passion, finesse and respect for the know-how of Swiss watch-making manufactories, such as Rolex.
He is a descendant of a line of watch-makers, including both of his grandfathers, who took the art of watch-making to its apogee, one at Bulova and the other at the head of a watch-making manufactory, Evilard Watch. During every moment he spent with them during his childhood, his eyes shone while he was busy taking apart the mechanisms and putting them back together.
He was consumed with passion: he decided to pursue the technical and artistic expression of watch-making. He has always been fascinated by the finesse, precision and the technical prowess of time-keepers, so he trained for four years at the specialist watch-making school in Geneva and completed an apprenticeship in micromechanics.
Trained by the greatest Swiss watch-making manufactories, including Patek Philippe and Roger Dubuis, he has highly honed skills and knowledge of the whole watch-making chain: from parts and components to machines. He learned to deburr a pivot, to produce each watch-making piece to micron precision, and was responsible for a team of 10 people adjusting pivoting on manual machines.
Later, he took over the family manufactory, and has become the guardian of Swiss watch-making know-how, while innovating and creating new models, such as those in the stop-watch collection.
From this lineage, a new challenge inspired him: to combine several constraints while respecting the essences of each one. KSW was born: to magnify a luxury time-keeper that reflected the person wearing it.
For CSW, your skeleton watch is not a luxury item like any other; it’s an extension of you. It is part of you, part of your personal history.
You are passionate about luxury watch-making, and about the technical and artistic prowess still displayed by the great watch-making manufactories such as Rolex and Patek Philippe. We can demonstrate this clearly to you by offering a design and an exceptional watch-making creation.
We are master watch-makers who share the same passion as you, namely Swiss watch-making know-how, and who are attached to the stories it tells and to the links that tie you to your watch.
Your watch is not just a time-keeper made up of hands, a face, and a complex movement. It has an emotional attachment. Secured firmly to your wrist with its strap, you take pleasure in owning it, wearing it, admiring it and telling its story. Your story.
