A. Lange & Söhne

In 1830, Ferdinand A. Lange has his first encounter with the watch-making profession when starting an apprenticeship with the renowned master watchmaker, Johann Christian Friedrich Gutkaes. Together with his son, he went on to build a small business into a well-known and prosperous manufactory. The brand then establishes itself as emblematic of creativity and tradition. Worldwide, people instantly recognise his creations for their clean lines and superb workmanship.

Andreas Strehler

In 1995, aided by his father, Andreas Strehler builds a design and restoration workshop in the family garage. On the agenda: restoration of old pieces and the creation of his own movements. He establishes his reputation. In 2007, he registers his company UhrTeil AG and sets up in a 300 m² building. Andreas Strehler offers remarkable technical complications under the guise of simplicity.

Antoine Preziuso

Antoine Preziuso has a fascination for watch-making that begins in childhood. In 1980, he opens his first watch-making workshop and attracts the attention of private clients and institutions. He develops two passions: the restoration of old timepieces and the creation of major complications. He is responsible for producing the first watches using meteorites. His surname means "valuable" in Italian.

Armin Strom

For connoisseurs, the name Armin Strom evokes the art of skeletonisation. In his thirty year career, the watch-maker produced more than 200 unique pieces and worked for some of the big brands. The company Armin Strom AG is founded in 2006, with the assistance of the investor Willy Michel. Its objective was to perpetuate the work of the founder. Its watches showcase movements with finishing carried out by hand. This style is one of the pillars of the company's philosophy.

Arnold & Son

Born in Cornwall, England, John Arnold was one of the most inventive watchmakers of his day, famed for his work in marine chronometers. His son, John Roger, took over his father's workshop and in 1830 went into business with Edward John Dent. Relaunched in La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1995, the Arnold & Son brand carries on the tradition and craftsmanship of quality English watchmaking. 5 years after its launch, it became an integrated Manufacture, capable of producing,in-house,simple and complication movements. Since 2012, Arnold & Son has been part of the Japanese group, Citizen.

Audemars Piguet

In 1875, two young men passionate about watch-making - Jules-Louis Audemars and Edward-Auguste Piguet - found Audemars Piguet. Guided by a desire for excellence and a spirit of invention, bequeathed as a legacy to all their descendants, the creators produce movements which punctuate and make their mark on history. To this day, the Audemars Piguet house is still in the hands of the descendants of the founders.

Baume & Mercier

Established in 1830, Baume & Mercier grew from the association of William Baume and Paul Mercier, in 1918 in Geneva. Business soon flourished. The company explored the styles of the Roaring Twenties to create ladies' watches that were icons of their day. Now part of the Richemont group, Baume & Mercier is known for its Hampton, Linea, Classima and Capeland watches, and positions itself as the brand for life's important moments.

Beat Haldimann

Beat Aldimann is the descendent of a large dynasty of watch-makers. He starts his career restoring old watches, then designing clocks. From the establishment of the brand in 2002, he is driven by a quest for excellence and innovation. In the field of complications, he got himself noticed with a series of high quality tourbillon watches. He has been a member of the A.H.C.I. since 2002.
