PART OF THE STORY TOLD BY MYSELF
Everything started from an early age in the late 90’s when I wanted to be an inventor. All made sense; I would have my own lab, and I would be like one of these inventors in the films.
As a teenager I was always very explorer and creative, I think that because of the education received. An education driven by a jeweller brother, a handyman mother and a doctor father. This mix of knowledge and different ways of seeing the world makes me become an open mind guy with a lot of projects and dreams to achieve.
Over the years I was also learning how to use all kind of machinery and tools, allowing me, from knowing how to make a tiny jewellery piece to steel structures for other projects. But my explorer ambition went beyond when I bought my first kit of carbon fibre to make parts for my motorcycle, and since then I haven’t stopped using it.
Between 2009 and 2013 I was studying mechanical engineering while spending my free time in my workshop manufacturing all kind of stuff.
Carbon fiber parts, a wind tunnel for an aerodynamic project, a supermotard pit bike with my brother and so many more things. Fundamentally, exploring why, when, how and what I wanted to do.
“What I didn’t know is that some years later I was going to mix my love for mechanical objects, design and carbon fiber to create a watch company.”
Finally, I finished my degree successfully, and I started to work for a company as an engineer on a project with a fascinating patent. But after a while, I realised that I didn’t want to work in somebody else ideas. I was going out of my way, what makes me happy and I wanted to return to my path. So, I came to England with my wife to be able to get more knowledge and see how the world moves outside of the Canary Islands (Spain), where I come from.
London became my new neighbourhood. A place full of energy where I started to design watches while working in a job that changed me forever. The warehouse wasn’t funny but working ten hours a day doing something where you don’t have to use your mind was very helpful to start to think how to build the best and more complex project I’ve ever done. I was back in my path, full of power and even in a city with tonnes of opportunities.
Since then, I’ve been focused like a laser on creating the best watch company. A company that for me requires two crucial things. A surprising product and a special relationship with the customers.
The rest of the story is the present, where I spend most of my time working in RzR that is part of my life together with my family and friends.
