About Ollivier Savelli
With the help of great masters, Ollivier Savelli was able to acquire a solid artisanal culture. His personal work and his abilities have enabled him to transcend the ‘simple’ artisan into a master of the purest tradition. It was in 1984 that this vocation began, with the Companions of the Tour de France where he learned professional excellence, love of work well done, the transmission of traditional know-how and fraternity for fifteen years. A professional know-how that allowed him to manage, in 1992, a unit of custom creation of high-end products in the South of France. His consecration came in 2000 when he won the prize of Meilleur Ouvrier de France in the Jewellery – Precious Metals category. A contest organized every four years by the French Government and recognized worldwide. With this title in his pocket, Ollivier acquired legitimacy, visibility and recognition by the major players in this field. It was thus that he was at the head of various groups of Haute Horlogerie and Jewellery for fifteen years.
Ollivier Savelli reviewing watchmaking
If watchmaking was a fairytale, it would traverse the watchmaking creations of Ollivier Savéo. With his professional and multicultural experience, his vision of luxury leads him to leave the beauty and the exceptional, forget the technique to plunge into the dream. An admirer of the philosophy of the Companions of the Tour de France, he borrows from them the techniques of construction using all kinds of materials. Materials that may come from various horizons such as traditional jewellery, horology, aeronautics, automobiles, architecture, decorative arts, modern art, street art and even comics. Ollivier was crowned the Meilleur Ouvrier de France in the Jewellery – Precious Metals category in 2000. This distinction, awarded by the major players in this milieu, allowed him to be at the head of various groups of Haute Horlogerie and Jewellery for fifteen years. It was in 2015, guided by his passion for sports cars, aviation, horses and of course the inexhaustible source nature, that Ollivier decided to go it alone and transcribe with perfection these leitmotifs in unique creations more lifelike than reality. His creations are genuine works of art each containing a craft of great exclusivity that combines the art of an artist-jeweller with Swiss watchmaking tradition. These watches are steeped in poetry and highlighted by technical prowess. It is the fusion of arts, forms, techniques and materials used for decades that combine with those of modern times, that give him a very personal and unique vision of watchmaking.
