The new CEO and new owner of Chronoswiss, Oliver Ebstin recently visited Oman to promote the brand and share the future growth plans with Fahad Al-Araimi, CEO of Al-Raid Jewelry, the authorised agent for Chronoswiss Watches in the Sultanate.
Oliver Ebstin has extensive experience in corporate finance and management of medium-sized companies with international production operations. In 2012, he became the CEO of Chronoswiss, headquartered in the Swiss town Lucerne with production facility near Munich.
The watch brand Chronoswiss was launched in Munich in 1983 by master watchmaker GerdRüdiger Lang. Since February 2012, the company has been under the new ownership of the Ebstein family. The company specialises in the manufacture of premium and exclusive mechanical watches equipped with Swiss watch components. The family business produces 5,000 watches every year. Chronoswiss exports the watches to 35 countries around the world, where they are available in 400 select specialty shops. Oliver was impressed with luxury boutique outlet located in Al Araimi Complex in the heart of Qurum, which offers variety of luxury watches and exclusive Jewelery to complement with it.
Three Decades of Chronoswiss – the Régulateur 30
For Chronoswiss, the year 2013 will be an important one: for one, it marks the 30th anniversary of the brand. There is another reason to celebrate: the legendary Régulateur will turn 25 years. Therefore, it makes sense to pay tribute to the ticking figurehead of the brand – in the shape of the Régulateur 30.
This anniversary watch is actually an “untypical” Régulateur, the surprising element is that it includes a window at the 12 o’clock position. It is here that the hour is placed within a “digital” display. The minute display has moved upward a little bit, intersecting the display of seconds. As an exclusive anniversary model, the Régulateur 30 will be available only in a limited edition of 130 pieces in a red gold case and 300 pieces in a stainless steel case.
Its delightful face captures one’s attention at first sight, boasting a lavish barleycorn guilloché pattern cut into the pure Sterling silver dial and emanating from its centre. This is a homage to the original Kairos model. Both versions also contain a chessboard guilloché pattern within the minute and seconds subdials. This timeless aesthetic is completed by thermally blued hands, which have been ground by hand and thus display precisely the right length for the dials’ displays. Less obvious little details like these will continue to play a large role at Chronoswiss in the future – for the next 30 years and beyond.
