Swiss Made

What does it mean?

As we are from Switzerland there is no question that all our watches are Swiss Made! But what does that mean? At least 60 per cent of the costs of manufacturing a complete watch (as an end product) must be generated in Switzerland. All our watches are designed, assembled and quality checked in Switzerland and do exceed the minimum requirements for “Swiss Made”.

The Moon Phase

For millions of people the moon as our closest neighbor in space was and still is the most fascinating planet next to earth. In many old cultures the moon is part of their religion and mythology. No other known object in space has a bigger influence on our life on earth then moon. For thousands of years people were using the time between one full moon and the next one to measure time. Depending on the collocation of earth, sun and moon we can see different parts of the moon illuminated. These are the so called moon phases. In average it takes 29 days, 12 hours and 43 minutes to complete a moon phase. Next to the moon phase indication our watches do have a so called full calendar indicating day, date and month.

The Chronograph

This year the world is actually celebrating the 200. anniversary of the chronograph. In the year 1816 Louis Moinet invented the first chronograph. The chronograph was first made as an astronomical tool but today it is one of the most popular watch complication in the world. The todays chronographs are used as a stop watch with hour, minute and second indication a start-stop-function and reset function.

Thanks to the easy release system you can change the style of your watch within seconds without any tools. From a classic to sports look within seconds. This system works with every strap on the market using the easy release system. Our watches do fit to (almost) every occasion in life.
