Since 1993 the insatiable designer from Besançon has been counting and recounting time. A crazy passion that he lives his own particular way, scrupulously respecting the method to better disrupt the codes and reinvent the art of watch-making. Under the Utinam Besançon© label, Franche-Comté watch-making started a revolution. In the land of Pasteur, Proudhon, Courbet, Victor Hugo and Fourier, utopia is like a second nature and imagination often gains control, challengingculture, power, science and technology, to better control them, sometimeseven tame them. A unique approach that shows well the one of Philippe Lebru. Just like his clocks and his watches that reveal all the mechanism’s magic and complexity in a design which combines a sober and a dramatic aspect. In 2005, he was awarded the Grand Prix at the Lépine Contest and he also won a Gold Medal for watch-making at the Geneva International Exhibition of Inventions. Always keeping his mind alert, he never stops designing, imagining again, stepping beyond his own dreams. He created several monumental clocks classified work of art in the new TGV station and the Museum of Arts from Besançon. In 2015, in Japan a clock 4m x 5m named Aoyama gives the time in the heart of Tokyo.
