An unexpected meeting and a brief discussion between two distinctive personalities – Friedhelm Wiesmann, co-founder of the automobile manufacturing company and Arnaud Faivre, founder of Manufacture Royale – made them aware of the close connections between their distinctive and resolutely convention-defying approaches.

According to Arnaud Faivre, “it is not only about creating a unique timepiece, but also a matter of sharing the same penchant for first-rate individuality through a long-term collaboration; this is a very exciting project for us and good news for watch and car enthusiasts!”
Like the engineers and specialists at the Wiesmann headquarters, the watchmakers at Manufacture Royale daily ensure the highest manufacturing quality by implementing a unique blend of traditional craftsmanship and contemporary expertise.
For Friedhelm Wiesmann, “Pure passion for mechanics, unconventional designs and true exclusivity are the qualities that make Wiesmann vehicles and Manufacture Royale timepieces so special.”
Dedicated to Wiesmann customers and friends, the first prototype of the timepiece will be presented to a few Wiesmann fans during the Geneva International Motor Show and officially launched at the World Watch and Jewellery Show, Baselworld 2013.
