Paul Picot Watches
About Paul Picot
Established in 1976 by Mario Boiocchi, watches of the Paul Picot brand are known for their contemporary but creative designs. Born in a horological environment that seemed to favor high technology and futuristic design, Paul Picot watches retained what the company saw as the true spirit of watchmaking; their watches are built completely in-house and new movements are based on the stockpile of historical pieces kept by the company. The Atelier collection is representative of Paul Picot's pursuit for designs both elegant and practical, with a strong emphasis on readability.
The hardy C-Type line follows in the successful path of its predecessors, the A-Type and B-Type, offering functionality and readability to divers and other adventurers. The face of the Technograph line splits the second, minute, and hour hands into three distinct dials for added clarity, while the integrated chronograph is raised above the face. The very distinctive styles of these lines underscores what Managing Director Eric Oppliger said in 2008: "Our goal is to offer only a few lines, but lines with a strong identity."
