FIELD OF ACTIVITY
Independent Master Watchmaker
A timepiece combining horological mechanics with precious woods. It all started with the desire to work, to shape different materials in order to offer a unique creation.
This desire took hold and pushed Samuel Gillioz, founder of the brand, to embark on the adventure of independent watchmaker. Passionate about watchmaking from design to manufacture, he pays particular attention to each of his creations. It thus reflects the meeting of watchmaking know-how with a material as rich and unique: precious wood.
This material being the basis of the project, and allowing to make each watch unique, it was important to make it honor in the definition of the brand name: KAURI, pronounced "KAORI", the oldest wood available in the world.
