Edouard Meylan was born in 1976 in the Vallée de Joux, Switzerland. Steeped in the watchmaking world from a young age, he discovered the inner workings of the business when he began working in the manufactures during his holidays. He left school in Yverdon with a science-based qualification and went on to study at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), graduating with an MSc in micro engineering. His career, however, initially took another direction. He began as a consultant at PwC in Zurich before returning to the watch industry in 2003, when he joined Desco to manage distribution of high-end independent watch brands in Asia.
In 2005, he became responsible for managing the offices in Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand. In August 2006, he left to study for an MBA at Wharton, and at the end of 2007, he founded Celsius X VI II, a pioneering company in the luxury mobile phone sector. In May 2013, he was appointed CEO at H. Moser & Cie., the brand owned by his family.
In addition to a truly entrepreneurial spirit, he brings to the brand his skills in global management, along with his comprehensive expertise in everything from product design to distribution.
