Tan Zehua's timepieces are all limited because of the amount of time to hand-craft parts and even his tooling because he had spent a good amount of years in a lathing company, holding the position of R & D Head. The eponymous label creates classical-looking timepieces heavily inspired by pocket watches, which includes even the bridge of the movement.
Entering the AHCI is a big leap forward to bring his craft to the international stage. Famously known for a flair in applying innovation on existing systems to improve performances, Tan Zehua has created four movements, which includes a di-axial escapement which has been applied for patent.
Tan Zehua, born in 1953 grew up surrounded by watches. He served his apprenticeship in his father's watch repair workshop since 1966. He then went on to work in a watch company for 14 years before running his own watch shop in 1980. In the earlier days of his independent watchmaking journey, he repairs antique watches and clocks before spending the last 10 years focused on watchmaking.
