Van Der Bauwede
In 1890, Alexis Van Der Bauwede from Bruges created the brand of the same name. At the time, this itinerant watch and jewellery maker, specialised in handling clocks and chimes, crisscrossed Flanders at the wheel of his Bugatti. From one town to the next, he installed and repaired the complex movements of cathedral and city hall clocks, which sometimes weighed up to 27 tons.
Despite being a watchmaker by trade, Alexis was highly versatile. He visited individuals door to door and sold his jewellery creations crafted in honour of big occasions. In 1920, he created his first jewellery set, called the ‘Cubes Diamants’ (Diamond Cubes), for a Russian countess and lover of exceptional objects. This was the beginning of a long story…
The Brand and its spirit still last nowadays in a beautiful way.
