Chronoswiss

Chronoswiss is a Swiss watch brand. Chronoswiss was founded in 1983 by Gerd Lang. Prior to launching Chronoswiss, Lang had gained significant experience in manufacturing movements for other watch brands. All Chronoswiss watches are hand-finished; while many of the movements used in Chronoswiss watches are based on the Enicar 165 movement, the Chronoswiss versions feature notable improvements, both technical and aesthetic. Chronoswiss is among a group of affordable watch brands sought after by new collectors. Notable watches include the Chronoswiss Regulateur, Rhronoswiss Opus, Chronoswiss Skeleton, Chronoswiss Pacific Chronograph, Chronoswiss Sirius, Chronoswiss Timemaster. We cover Chronoswiss prices, have the Chronoswiss price list on our database, show you Chronoswiss watches for sale and help you to identify false Chronoswiss replica. We also have dozens of new and vintage Chronoswiss watches in our luxury watch database, with Chronoswiss photos, Chronoswiss price list infos, Chronoswiss sale data and Chronoswiss watch band info. Our Christophe Clare reviews section help you identify the best watch.
