The story of a dream

All is possible to the one who dares to work and never gives up

THE BIRTH OF HALCHIMY

a bold challenge

Nothing was written about Kevin and Nicolas becoming watchmakers. Nothing, but the IT engineer had a dream so real that turned into a will. Nothing but perhaps the passion of a family, devoted to this project. It is from this nothing, that their history is born, from this will, this desire so deep that it surpassed all reason, enlightened only by the irreducible flame of perseverance

STEPS

From a dream to Halchimy

2013 - 2014

Birth of Halchimy and 3D design of the first sketches.

2016

The project takes time to materialize. An in-depth reflection of our concept is necessary.

2018

There is a succession of events, Halchimy becomes a member of France Horlogerie and is selected to be incubated at Station F. The first prototypes appeared and are presented for the first time at Baselworld.

Winner of two competitions: Hauts-de-seine Initiative and Innovation Outre-mer, Halchimy sees the completion, the launch of the production of its frames.

2015

The first technical studies around the concept are followed by the creation of prototypes in 3D printing. At the end of 2015, the patent for the invention of the interchangeable lugs system was filed.

2017

Meeting with our designer in Besançon and our suppliers at the Watch & Clock International Watch Fair are decisive and give us hope.

Creation of a new website for the sale of Halchimy frames. Launch of production and marketing of watches

WHO ARE WE

TWO COMPLEMENTARY BROTHERS

Nicolas Oualli
Co-founder

Nicolas Oualli shares the same dream as his brother. While the former charges ahead, the latter takes a step back, observes and analyses in order to understand the stakes. Their thriving success story is obviously based on their brotherly chemistry.

Kevin Oualli
Co-founder

In watchmaking industry, Kevin Oualli is one of a kind. As an aesthetic entrepreneur, all-hands-on and a go-getter, Kévin is driven by this constant desire to undertake. An overflowing ardour that he dedicates entirely to the fulfillment of his dream.
