Bradley Taylor's passion for watchmaking was ignited in Le Locle, Switzerland where he attended Korpela & Hofs Watchmaking Competence Centre to study traditional watchmaking. He absorbed generations of knowledge learning under the venerable Henrik Korpela, attaining his watchmaking diploma in 2015 after successfully completing the demanding 4500-hour program.
Soon after graduating and working in after-sales service he was trained at Patek Philippe in Geneva, passing their challenging level II certification over the course of one month. Opportunity arose when his friend and fellow watchmaker Charles Birchall moved back to Toronto from the Isle of Man and the two started brainstorming. They started the first luxury Canadian watchmaking company Birchall & Taylor in Toronto, developing and making two watch models, the Reference 1 and 1R.
Now, Bradley continues to follow his passion making watches to his own vision and standards from the beautiful west coast in Vancouver, Canada.
