Small but oh-so sweet

Meet Geneva’s newest, and smallest, maison

It’s not only the grand maisons that attract all the attention. Opened in March 2022, Ateliers Hervé Schlüchter has been stunningly successful. The micro manufacturer – just three watchmakers – crafts only one piece, the L’Essentiel. Schlüchter himself is L’École des Métiers Techniques trained and worked at Bovet before striking out on his own. The L’Essentiel features an hour hand indicated on a rotating 24-hour disc, with a night and day indication that is visible through a U-shaped cut-out in the dial; the minute is indicated by the long central hand, and the second, on a subdial at six o’clock. Gorgeous.
