A more endearing man than Vianney Halter would be hard to find. The man – or kid, you might be tempted to say, since he has never succeeded in shaking off his childhood spirit, and so much the better! – is a real loose cannon in the watchmaking industry. He first rocked the boat of tradition early in his career with a peculiarly offbeat, but authentically executed, approach to watches. Freer than most, Vianney’s inspirations are different every time, drawn from his many and varied interests ranging from astronomy and science fiction right through to clocks for buildings, comic books and Bréguet’s most erudite research, in the case, for example, of his latest Résonance.
