AHCI - The Independent Spirit, Time Makers since 1985

The Academy of Independent Creators in Watchmaking (Académie Horlogère des Créateurs Indépendants, AHCI) is celebrating its 35th anniversary in 2020: that’s over one-third of a century of total independence, creativity, exhibitions, and sharing watchmaking craftsmanship. Here, AHCI, the oldest organization in the world devoted to protecting independent, artisanal watchmaking, presents an inside portrait of its members and candidates. Here, they share their most iconic creations and their knowhow, give guided tours of their workshops and offer a glimpse into their own private world. This dive into the beating heart of independent watchmaking is for all lovers of creativity and authenticity, be the connoisseurs of fine craftsmanship or experienced collectors willing to take the road less travelled.
