Pierre and Jean-Claude Biver

Leading the charge in melding tradition with cutting-edge design, Biver Watches is thrilled to announce the grand finale of its Carillon Tourbillon Minute Repeater series with 10 stunning new pieces, launched at Geneva Watch Week. This unveiling isn’t just a significant moment; it’s a bold declaration of the brand’s unwavering commitment to superior craftsmanship, guided by the legendary Jean-Claude Biver. A titan of the watchmaking world, Biver’s genius and vision infuse each of these new masterpieces, setting a fresh standard for elegance and sophistication in haute horlogerie.

This collection pays homage to the esteemed craft of dial making, offering aficionados two magnificent options: the heavenly Mother-of-Pearl and the mystic Black Obsidian. These choices aren’t merely aesthetic; they’re a testament to the refined elegance and painstaking attention to detail that are hallmarks of Biver Watches.

The new models captivate at first glance, with dials that immediately convey a sense of depth and character. Echoing a sentiment shared by Biver and inspired by the Parisian tailor Chevreuil’s belief that attire is an extension of oneself, these timepieces are designed to be a mirror of the wearer’s individuality. The Carillon Tourbillon Minute Repeater series embodies a perfect harmony of form and function, celebrating the meticulous artistry behind each dial and underlining the brand’s dedication to unparalleled excellence.

The collection distinguishes itself through the dramatic contrast between the black obsidian and the rose gold case, as well as the tranquil beauty of the mother-of-pearl encased in titanium. These watches are driven by the state-of-the-art automatic calibre JCB-001, boasting micro-rotor winding, a beat rate of 21,600 vibrations per hour (3Hz), and a power reserve of 72 hours.


Every aspect, from the gently curved dials that play with light to the detailed guilloché patterns that give each watch its distinct personality, showcases the art of watchmaking. The innovative use of materials, including Alcantara and grey water buffalo leather for the straps, alongside the pioneering use of obsidian and mother-of-pearl, illustrates the brand’s ambition to redefine traditional watchmaking boundaries.


Woven into each watch is Biver’s unparalleled legacy, with every model reflecting his conviction in the power of innovation balanced with a deep respect for watchmaking traditions. The unveiling of these 10 Carillon Tourbillon Minute Repeaters is not just a look into the future of Biver Watches but a celebration of Biver’s lasting influence on the art and science of horology.
