My name is Olivier. I have created this blog to document my work on watchmaking.

I am a Chartered Mechanical Engineer as background, and after a career in Engineering and Project Management I decided to work full time on my passion for horology.

As you might have guessed from my name I am French of origin, but I have dual British and French nationality and currently live and work in the UK in Hampshire.

I hope you enjoy reading my blog!
