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. Finally, the whole story did start from nothing, from this will, this wish so intense that it was beyond belief, simply enlightened by the unwavering flame of perseverance.
From a dream to Halchimy
Birth of Halchimy and 3D design of the first sketches.
The project takes time to materialize. An in-depth reflection of our concept is necessary.
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.
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.
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
TWO COMPLEMENTARY BROTHERS
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.
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.
