  • Catalogue Essay

    Founded in the early 1980s by Gerd-Rüdiger Lang, Chronoswiss raison d’être, was to offer mechanical watches presenting interesting complications with designs inspired from the golden era of watchmaking at attractive prices.
    Lang, a trained watchmaker spent the largest part of his career at Heuer but early 1980 at the height of the quartz crisis he was let go. Not accepting defeat, he launched not only a brand making exclusively mechanical watches but it is believed that Chronoswiss was the first brand to systematically offer sapphire casebacks on its watches as to show the mechanical movement beating inside.
    The present Klassik is reminiscent of the golden age of chronographs with its classically sized 37mm case, its strong facetted lugs, black dial and gilt lettering.
    In superb condition the present Klassik would be a perfect watch for the budding collector looking for a timepiece providing for great value.
    The present set is completed by a stainless steel Ebel, Le Modulor. This sportive and masculine chronograph perfectly embodies the Ebel DNA with its curved, almost wavy case and bracelet. Powered by one of the most famous caliber, the El Primero, this watch is part of an exclusive family fitted with the historical first automatic chronograph movement. The silver and white dial beautifully complement the case and confer this watch a pure and very well balance style. A watch to wear everyday as sport of elegant timepiece.
