The Olivier Vaucher Workshops have enhanced watches and jewellery since 1978 by infusing them with an authentic artistic dimension. Located in the heart of Geneva, they have developed a method where traditional techniques marry modern technology to create new forms and effects. Expert in over 17 traditional crafts, the Olivier Vaucher Workshops have learned to make dreams come true at first sight.

 

Olivier et Dominique

Dominique Vaucher

On her mother’s side, Dominique Vaucher comes from a line of multi-talented artists. The Regamey family has included painters, illustrators, watercolour artists, engravers and lithographers. So she grew up in an environment where creative expression was the norm. Trained in visual arts, Dominique Vaucher learned to channel her talent through several techniques she acquired over time. Dabbling in frescoes, murals and optical illusions, she successfully moved on to oil painting. When she met Olivier Vaucher in 2003 she discovered the art of working with very small sizes. She added her sensibility to his work and together she and her future husband developed a decidedly artistic and vibrant approach to crafts used in watchmaking.
