ALAIN SILBERSTEIN

 

Like all creative artists, ALAIN SILBERSTEIN dreamt of a location where he could present the full range of his watches and clocks as well as those timepieces which he sometimes creates just for fun.

Somewhere he could meet those with a passion for his watchmaking skills and creations.

Born in Paris, he wanted to rediscover the unique atmosphere of the area in which he began his art studies: St. Germain-des-Prés. A "village" within the city where students, artists, intellectuals and visitors from all over the world pass their time in bookstores, art galleries, artists' studios, and of course... on café terraces!

200 Boulevard Saint-Germain (between Rue des Saints-Pères and Rue Saint-Guillaume) is ALAIN SILBERSTEIN's address in Paris.

Alain Silberstein's personal history has been rather unusual: this Parisian interior architect and designer by profession became a watch-architect in Besançon at the end of the 80's by creating his own watch company. Luck gave a helping hand to his passion for watches.

At a time when the disappearance of mechanical watchmaking seemed almost inevitable, he joined the very restricted club of Swiss manufacturers who were behind the rebirth of the mechanical watch.

In his workshop on the banks of the Doubs river, Alain Silberstein creates and produces each year with the help of his 20 assistants, including 6 watchmakers, nearly 3,000 watches in different collections.

Exceptional timepieces like the tourbillon, perpetual calendar, sports chronograph watches, jewellery watches with diamonds and art watches with cloisonned dials, have again become part of the capital of French watchmaking.

Alain Silberstein creates watches for everyday wear that are resolutely contemporary and genuine works of art. The movements are visible through the transparent back so that the exceptional finish of the piece can be admired.

In ten years, Alain Silberstein has been able to demonstrate that research, innovation and quality can enable a French brandname to take its place beside the famous Swiss watchmaking names.
