A real passion for watchmaking since 2004.

At the origin of Artisan du Temps, there is Gilles Clavareau. This enthusiast young men leaves at the age of 16 to study watchmaking in France. As soon as he gets back in Belgium, he sets up a restoration workshop in the attic of the family home. Very quickly, he seizes the opportunity to open his own shop. The workshop moves, and Gilles can then develop the purchase and sale of collectible watches. The displays are always full, and to provide a better service to his customers, he surrounds himself slowly with a team of confidence, professional as like him in watchmaking.

The watchmakers of Artisan du Temps are very well equipped, the old tools are next to the modern tools, which allows a quality technical approach to the repair of your timepiece. We also have a large selection of books about vintage and collectible watches as well as clocks, that you can consult on request.

The shop now has a prestigious collection of vintage and collectible watches. They are all perfectly authentic, controlled, revised and always sold with a 2 years warranty! The workshop is composed of several workstations, dedicated to the repair of vintage or recent quality watches as well as the repair of beautiful clocks.

Feel free to come visit us, and ask us for an experienced opinion on your watch !


A team of passionate and specialized craftsmen is at your service, our watchmakers are qualified. They have a thorough knowledge and a watchmaking know-how that allows them to give the perfect advice when buying or selling, or how best to take care of your rare and precious watches. It is by working at the workbench that we appreciate and know the beautiful mechanics, and not by learning the catalogs by heart, as do many simple watch merchants.
