Rodolfo and Emmanuelle Festa Bianchet have decided to follow their dream in 2017 to build a Swiss watch brand reflecting their personality and combining modernity, cutting-edge techniques and a refined aesthetic..
At the time, Rodolfo was a successful entrepreneur in the Fintech sector and had created the first online financial trading app for smartphones. A brainchild of Rodolfo, the analysis engine used in the app to predict market trends was an algorithm based on the Fibonacci sequence and the Golden Ratio.
Passionate about watches from a young age, and a watch collector, Rodolfo had a dream to create his watch brand.
"Watches are the love of my life. They always have been".
Born to a family of artists, Emmanuelle Festa Bianchet began her career in journalism, while at the same time pursuing her passion for music and painting.
A lover of fine objects, architecture and design, she embraced the family’s watchmaking adventure with the conviction that the search for beauty and harmony could build a legacy.
"Our voyage started with a dream and unfolds towards a future that is both faithful to tradition and open to innovation. It is a privilege to share this journey with lovers of fine horology and appreciators of the exceptional.
Our intent is to create experiences inspired by design and beauty,
and the magic of the tourbillon movement. "
