Ukrainian Watchmaker Valerii Danevych’s miniature wooden timepieces are incredible. You could study them all day, especially with the beautiful display set up at the Académie Horlogère des Créateurs Indépendants (AHCI) booth at Baselworld.
This creative genius is not a one trick pony, he carves it all out of wood from wristwatches to pocket watches – even clocks and tourbillons! The only component that isn’t from a tree is the spring!
As if all this isn’t interesting enough, there is one quality that sets Valerii Danevych apart from the other watchmakers at Baselworld: he is not a trained watchmaker!
