Paolo Baldini was an Italian artisan watchmaker from Brescia who designed and hand-crafted exclusive watches for his clients. Twenty-five years later, Giovanni and Danielle Giacomelli have taken over his 'Paul Baldin' brand and redesigned the Italian styling with a more stimulating appearance. At the same time, the essential quality and the fundamental nature of the original creations have been maintained. The Italian designed Swiss Made Paul Baldin Timepieces, with their distinctive look and uncompromising Swiss quality have now been launched worldwide.
