I was born in Zurich, Switzerland, grew up nearby. After finishing my studies in Electrical Engineering at the ETH in Zurich with the masters degree, I was working as a software developer - initially in semiconductor industries, and later many years in life sciences. Designing and creating innovative software, interacting with customers, and managing a small team of software developers was my big pleasure. I was always taken with mechanical constructions, designed and experimented with model airplanes. When 3d-printing became commonly available, a door for a new type of creativity was opened. I had to open this door, and immediately my focus was attracted by mechanical watches. 3d-printing allows to quickly transform fantasy into physical objects. I stopped my former job in December 2014, in order to find more time for a new adventure as a designer for sophisticated 3d-printed objects. My 3d-printed watch with tourbillon was featured in many magazines, and it was even the winner at the Piemonte Share Festival in May, 2016. I believe, future watches will be highly customizable - not only engraving or ornaments on the case, but the whole watch including the movement. Hardware is software.
