Romain Gauthier

Romain Gauthier is a firm that has been built with care and patience. Using his knowhow learned over some 20 years in his native Joux Valley, and with his manufacture named after him, Romain Gauthier embodies an innovative vision of watchmaking aesthetics based on movements that are as cutting-edge as they are meticulous.

About

Romain Gauthier was born in 1975 in the Joux Valley. It was in the heart of this watchmaking valley that he developed his passion for traditional fine watchmaking – combining contemporary design and microengineering. After studying precision mechanics, Romain Gauthier was awarded his diploma as a precision machine builder.

In 1997, he took up a position as a CNC programmer in a large firm in the Valley. He was so committed to the development of this position that within the space of just a few years, he turned it into one of the best equipped CNC departments in Europe!

Still driven by the desire to create his own watch brand, Romain Gauthier earned his MBA with distinction in 2002 – the subject of his end-of-study dissertation being “The business plan for Romain Gauthier Watches”.

Following his studies he began to work on his watches, concentrating from the outset on the design of their movements. In 2006, after having worked for four years in complete discretion, Romain Gauthier launched his own-name brand by presenting his first model, the Prestige HM, for which the movement is manufactured by the Firm.The Prestige HMS came out in 2012, followed by the avant-garde Logical One in 2013.

Collections

Logical One

this collection, comprising models in platinum or gold, features a constant force chain and fusée transmission system on its dial. Its 43mm case has a transparent back, revealing the power reserve.

Prestige HM

the firm's only timepiece not to feature an openwork dial, the Prestige HM expresses all the beauty of an elegant hand-guilloched dial, on which rests a time dial featuring sober, minimalist aesthetics.

Prestige HMS

this collection combines the fine guilloche of the upper part of the dial with the contemporary design of a skeleton-type movement, visible in the lower half. The Prestige HMS comes in four precious metals.
