Independent watchmaker, designer, artist.
Raúl Pagès is an independent Swiss watchmaker (movement designer and restorer). In 2005 he obtained his diploma of watchmaker-restorer in antique watchmaking with honors, then in 2006 his diploma of designer in watch complications at the CIFOM in Le Locle. For more than 15 years he has been working on the restoration of horological masterpieces belonging to the most prestigious collections in the world. These technical skills allow him today to offer masterpieces that perfectly combine tradition and modernity.
In 2012, he decided to set up his own business in order to manufacture entirely by hand the 352 components of his now iconic « Tortue » automaton. Building on this experience, he embarked on the manufacture of a limited series of 10 pieces « Soberly Onyx », his first timepiece, in 2016.
In 2017, he also became a member of the Académie Horlogère des Créateurs Indépendants (AHCI).
As an accomplished musician, and a lover of art history and 20th century design history, Raúl Pagès explores the time measurement of time and its history as a multi-faceted artist. A rigorous and meticulous technician, he innovates and designs exceptional watchmaking mechanisms.
