The Musaget Apollo
In 2015, it was while attending a ballet at the Paris Opera, George Balanchine's "L'Appollon Musagète", that he conceived the idea for the Byrne Watch. That evening, the inventor was captivated by a tableau of the Stars who, placed one behind the other, moved so fast that they gave the impression of being a woman with four faces.
A new chapter
He talks to his wife, Claire, a Retail and Luxury Specialist, who decides to accompany him on this adventure. They travelled to Switzerland and were welcomed in one of the cradles of Haute Horlogerie in Fleurier, Val Travers. It was here that the Montres Byrne adventure began, a fusion of long experience in the restoration of haute-horlogerie timepieces and the know-how of a Manufacture created by great captains of the watchmaking industry. It has taken many years to sublimate the case and perfect the GYRO DIAL movement. In 2021, the GYRO DIAL enters the world of watches, and the Byrne Watch can make its enchanted merry-go-round fly and activate its magical complication.
