  • Catalogue Essay

    Chronoswiss was founded by master watchmaker Gerd-Rüdiger Lang and his wife in 1983. Since February 2012, it has been under the ownership and guidance of entrepreneurial family Ebstein from Lucerne, Switzerland. Still an independent family business, Chronoswiss is specialized in the manufacture of high-quality, mechanical Swiss wristwatches with a passion for detail. These are exported to 26 countries, where they can be purchased from 300 select specialized dealers. The company headquarters are located in Lucerne (Switzerland). In spring 2013, CEO Oliver Ebstein founded a special workshop at Lucerne which is dedicated to the traditional crafts of guilloche à main, skeletonization and enamel.

Ref. CH-1641W-OW15
In its second contribution, “Ouroboros”, Chronoswiss pays tribute to the ancient symbol of a serpent eating its own tail, a metaphor for eternal re-creation. This fascinating timepiece is yet another example for artistic craftsmanship performed at Chronoswiss, the white gold dial having been engraved by hand.
