About Vincent CalabreseMr. Vincent Calabrese is a self-taught, non-conformist individual who has been inventing and making watches that have repeatedly challenged watchmaking conventions and certainties since 1975. In the 1980s, he conceived the idea of creating a movement with linear gear trains, mounted within a transparent exterior and isolated in space without any visible connection. Calabrese achieved this tour de force and his patented creation was rewarded at the 1977 edition of the Geneva International Inventors' Show. The patent covered the ingenious winding and time-setting system via the barrel arbor, a device that avoided the need to fit two crowns.
