Vianney Halter – bio

Graduated from the Watchmaking School of Paris in 1981, Vianney Halter spent the first ten years of his professional life restorating antique clocks, pocket watches and wristwatches.
Independent since 1994, he has been designing and making various timepieces for other manufactures, in 2003 for Harry Winston, 2006 for Cabestan.
Since 1998 he has also developed his own collection and launched a new trend in watchmaking, using his unique style, his own technical patents and trademarked designs. His first model, the Antiqua Perpetual Calendar, was immediately regarded as a « relic of the future », thus asserting his creativity.
Altogether, 10 different wristwatch models were created by Vianney Halter. Nevertheless, the production remains very limited, as less than 500 watches bearing his signature were produced.
The yearly production is of a few dozen pieces, lucky fews have to be patient before wearing their masterpieces.
