Gerd-Rüdiger Lang, founder of Chronoswiss

Template:File Chronoswiss is a Swiss (formerly German) watch manufacturer in operation since 1984.


In 1981 the watchmaker Gerd-Rüdiger Lang founded this company in Munich. Chronoswiss is specialized on mechanical wristwatches with Swiss quality movements by ETA as well as on the basis of old calibre stocks by Enicar and Marvin. Also two own calibres are made. Since 1988 all cases come from in-house production. A particular success was the „Régulateur“, a wristwatch with regulator dial based on the model of precision pendulum clocks. A pocket watch "Regulateur" with a Minerva calibre was also made. Chronoswiss now exports to over 40 countries worldwide. Each year about 7,000 watches are sold in about 500 stores worldwide - in Paris, London, New York and Tokyo.

At the beginning of 2012 Chronoswiss was sold to a Swiss entrepreneur family, with Oliver Ebstein taking over as CEO. Chronoswiss moved to its new headquarters in Lucerne, Switzerland in 2014.

Chronoswiss Handelsgesellschaft Vienna

In 1975, Siber Hegner Holding AG of Zürich founded a company called Chronoswiss Handelsgesellschaft in Austria to sell the products of Synchron SA (Cyma, Ernest Borel, and Doxa) there. The company represented IWC by 1981. The company was unrelated to the later German company.
