Chronoswiss Watches South Africa – Fine Mechanical Timepieces

Manufacturing watches worthy of an iconic status, Chronoswiss has perfected the art of designing out of this world timepieces that are more than suitable for those clients who dare to be different.

Chronoswiss is a relatively new watch brand, when taking into consideration that most other famous watch brands can boast a 100 year long history while Chonoswiss has barely been in business for 40 years.

Despite its youthful status, Chronoswiss has truly earned its place amongst the world’s most beloved brands, and with their numerous collections, there is something for everyone to choose from. Even the most enthusiastic watch collector should consider adding a Chronoswiss timepiece to their watch drawer.

At Topwatch we have a wide variety of Chronoswiss watches for sale at the best prices in South Africa.

The Brief History of Chronoswiss

The company was founded by Gerd-Rudiger Lang in 1983. The company was established at the height of the quartz popularity and while others might have shied away from the fierce competition, Lang saw something few others could see: the love of timepieces is timeless.

Knowing that there would always be a market for watches, Lang decided that his watch company would focus on manufacturing the kind of watches that are suited to visionaries and pioneers, people like him who could think outside of the box and who were looking for a watch to match their personality.

Chronoswiss might have been in competition with many other similar companies, but it drew the lines in the battlefield, when it pioneered the miniaturised regulator for wristwatches and has since developed an entire collection around the regulator.

The Chronoswiss DNA

Chronoswiss is proud to be a modern mechanical watch brand. In what they call the Chronoswiss DNA, the brand combines their watch making expertise, their unique designs, their selection of modern materials, and their love for the classics to come up with distinctive and immediately recognisable watches.

Each of their watches are designed to stand the test of time although they are made specifically to suit 21st century living.

The Chronoswiss brand is constantly innovating and creating new beautiful watches to add to their collections. Their watches are designed to showcase certain features which include things like moon phases, dates, jumping hour, and specific dials, which enables the buyer to select the precise watch to suit their needs as well as their design tastes.

The watches also come in 6 sizes, further allowing the buyer to select the kind of watch face that suits their wrist.

The watches are manufactured using different materials and watch buyers can choose from rose gold, stainless steel, blue stainless steel, black stainless steel, and brown stainless steel watches.

Are Chronoswiss worth the money?

Chronoswiss watches are most certainly worth the money. Not only are they manufactured using the very best materials and age old, refined watch making techniques, but they are also known for their longevity so long as they are kept in a good working condition.

What is the hardest Chronoswiss to get?

The hardest Chronoswiss watch to buy would be any of the watches listed in the limited ranges as well as those watches which are no longer a part of their collections, such as those moved out of the line to make way for newer designs. Some watch collectors say that the Chronoswiss Regulateur Tourbillon is one of the more rare watches you can get from this brand.

Which Chronoswiss should I buy?

The Chronoswiss watch that you choose to buy should be the watch that you want, i.e. the one that matches your watch expectations in terms of performance and style. You should also make sure that the watch you buy suits your budget.

How long will a Chronoswiss last?

A Chronoswiss watch has a long lifespan if it is kept in a good condition and given its service when need be. The battery should be the only thing that will need replacing when the time comes, and that is a cheap and easy replacement.

How do I tell if my Chronoswiss is real?

There are a few things that you can check to make sure that your watch is real:

·        Look for the obvious errors. Things like spelling mistakes, the design, or even the letter spacing is often wrong or off in some way.

·        There is no authenticity certificate. If your watch doesn’t come with a certificate, it could be a fake.

·        The price is too cheap, or too expensive. Do you research before you buy your watch to find out if you are paying too little or too much for your watch.

·        Only buy from a reputable dealer. If you buy from any random person, you might well end up with a watch that comes from someone trying to sell you a fake.

Should I buy a new or used Chronoswiss?

The choice is up to you whether you buy a new or a used Chronoswiss watch. Both options have their advantages. A new watch out of the box is great if you’d like to own a new watch, but if you are not fussy, opting for a second hand watch is fantastic and you will save money.

What is the most wanted Chronoswiss?

The most wanted Chronoswiss watch is any watch from the limited, collector’s edition. These watches are not mass produced and furthermore they are also not in great circulation which means that if you can get your hands on one, count yourself lucky.

How much is Chronoswiss service cost?

The price for a Chronoswiss service can vary depending on the type of watch you own as well as the place or person where you are taking your watch to be serviced. For good measure, bank on putting away around R 1000.

How can I tell the year of my Chronoswiss?

The easiest way to find out what year your watch was made in would be to ask the person or company you are buying your watch from for the paperwork related to the watch. If that doesn’t answer your question you could also look up your watch online to see what year it was made in.
