For centuries the Vallee de Joux, widely recognised as the birthplace of Swiss horology, has produced some of the world’s most acclaimed independent watchmakers. Located in the Jura Mountains just 30 miles north of Geneva, its harsh winters and stunning natural landscape provide a tranquil setting for craftsmen practicing a rare art form. Countless hours are spent assembling complications behind the wooden desks of an 18th century farmhouse dubbed “La Grand Piece,” the home and atelier of master watchmaker David Candaux.
As a third-generation master watchmaker, David Candaux spent his early years fully immersed in a culture founded upon traditional craftsmanship. After decades of honing his skills through a brilliant career with several renowned watch brands, David is prepared for his next chapter. Through the David Candaux Master-Piece Collection 1740, he brings forth knowledge passed on through generations, skills acquired over a spectacular career, and a valley watchmaker vision of a 21st century Haute Horlogerie.
