ASTRO

The first clock with a linear equation of time

 

 

 

Its History

 

Astro was first a school project in order to graduate from my BMA (Brevet des métiers d’arts) at the Paris Diderot technological school.

When I was working on the R&D of the watch I had the idea to linearize it and then to add a few more complications. I then had my degree and I presented Astro to the Young talent competition hosted by the AHCI and FP Journe.

It won the award and was unveiled at Baselworld 2016 during a press conference.

This clock gave me the strength and confidence to launch my own brand and TL Watchmaking was born.
