ATELIER SCHMID – ARTISANAL WATCH AND CLOCKMAKERS – REVISION, RESTORATION AND SALE OF OLD AND ANTIQUE CLOCKS

Certified master watchmaker with 30 years of experience in craftsmanship, training and restoration/conservation.


Since completing my four-year traineeship at the International Watch Co. (IWC) in Schaffhausen, the gear wheel has never been far from the centre of my professional path. The motion and the physical laws have fascinated me from the very beginning.


At the end of the 1990s, after completing my training to become a certified watchmaker at the ZeitZentrum in Grenchen, I was responsible for the repair of complicated watches (perpetual calendars, chronographs, etc.) at IWC. An extraordinary opportunity gave me chance to move to Zurich, where I joined the Chronometrie Beyer AG, one of the most renowned watch and jewellery shops in the country. At this time, I became increasingly interested in clockmaking.

Inspired and supported by the inestimable knowledge and experience of a long-time clockmaker, in addition to my job as an instructor of young watchmaking apprentices, I was also able to dedicate myself to the care of a clock collection that is unique in the world.

Thereafter, I spent 20 years engaged in the intense study of a wide variety of antique, old and modern timepieces. The field is massive, indeed inexhaustible, and new discoveries in terms of the craft and technical knowledge are practically daily occurrences. Having my own company now affords me delightful opportunities to continue my study on a continual basis.

Welcome to my atelier – I look forward to your visit.
