Pierre Kunz

Making a name for oneself in the often impenetrable watchmaking industry is no simple task. Master watchmaker Pierre Kunz has not only succeeded in launching his very own brand of complicated timepieces…he has even made it look easy. Born in Bern, Switzerland, in 1959, Pierre Kunz has been involved in the watchmaking industry for more than twenty years.

After completing his studies at the celebrated Vallée de Joux watchmaking school, he worked for a number of years in the workshops of Victorin Piguet where he constructed a variety of grande complications from start to finish.

Though he would later open his own business restoring antique clocks, it was not long before he returned to some of Switzerland’s leading brands to make more grande complications, his first love. Kunz was given the opportunity of a livetime when Franck Muller offered him the chance to create his own models at the famous Watchland Park at Genthod, a location perpetually associated with creativity.

Overlooking the shores of Lake Geneva directly opposite Mont Blanc, Watchland is home to a host of master craftsmen and talented artisans dedicated to maintaining Switzerland’s time-honored watchmaking traditions.

Taking a leaf from the big watchmakers’ book, the Watchland Group is quickly becoming a miniconglomerate of haute horlogerie brands.
