Passionate about horology from his childhood, Bruno is very interested in mechanical precision. Became engine engineer, he has been working for Cosworth in UK as designer of racing engines, then at various OEMs around the world.
This passion for mechanic combined with passion of watchmaking, made Bruno come up with an incredible challenge of “Creating your own watch”.
In 2011, inspired by technical and materials knowledge, he designs his first watch with a purpose of “robustness and solidity”.
The first model, the « TCA01 », is directly inspired by excellence with an alloy of machined titanium case for more robustness. Its two sapphire glasses are directly screwed on the case with 24 screws (12 on the top, 12 on the bottom).The first Chronograph was born in 2011 and produced to 20 limited units.
Bruno talks about OSSAU Watch: “ All the watches’ parts I created are a part of myself, they have one a piece of my DNA, my beliefs, my wishes, my fears… They mainly represent the vision I have of a watch that has to give you the time but above all be part of ourselves. It has to share our everyday life. You can have several watches, but you can only wear oneat a time which gives it a special importance. Some of us wear a watch for each activity, some others choose it for its colour, its shape but one thing is certain, it always remains one that becomes the Elected. It is maybe not the most beautiful or the most expensive but, this same inexplicable alchemy I felt pushes you to wear it again and again. Even if sometimes you cheat a little bit with her, it is this watch you will leave to your children.
So I do not know if this watch will be yours, but even if it’s not the case, I would be honoured one of my watch would have been part of your life, just a fewmoments.”
