Calabrese, Vincent


A self-educated person, iconoclast and philosopher, his creations are a challenge to mechanical engineering traditions in general and watchmaking traditions in particular. The number, the diversification and the originality of these creations have made him famous throughout the world as one of its most fertile designers. Vincent Calabrese is one of that rare breed of watchmakers who are able to build a watch movement himself completely by hand. Traditionally, those movements are in 18kt gold, but he is the only one to date to have built movements in 950 platinum. His so-called "SPATIALE" watchmaking style allows him to create unique and personalized movements beneath any shape whatsoever, such as the owner's initials, symbols, animals, countries and so on. To his technical achievements, such as the "FLYING TOURBILLON", regulator or not, he has added unique aesthetic features, and his collection, though very complex, astonishes the beholder with its sheer beauty and its elegant simplicity.

Vincent Calabrese enjoys challenges that test his inventive mind, and creates watches that, in contrast to the traditional look of watches with dials, have to be different from anything that has ever been created before. An eclectic, he can design a popular watch such as the "COMMEDIA", a gold plated quartz watch, as well as a handmade watch in 18kt gold or even in 950 platinum that is tailor-made to the owner's personal requirements, such as the "PERSONNELLES" range. We cannot help but be amazed at the many facets of V. Calabrese's creative talent. All of his creations have a mechanism that he himself has invented and built, all his creations have an outward appearance that has been conceived without any outside influence or borrowed ideas. Moreover, if the creations are not already patented, there is a patent pending.
