House of Chronos

When starting a conversation about watches, most of the time you will hear ‘Swiss made’ and that’s just.. well heritage. Watches and all other things that have anything to do with time find their origin in Switzerland. Over the years it became a sort of quality demand. When your watch was Swiss made, it had …

Orologeria Esclusiva: Atelier de Chronométrie AdC#4. Il luogo comune più diffuso tra gli appassionati d’orologeria è che la Svizzera sia l’unica detentrice delle migliori idee e realizzazioni in questo ambito. Ma, al solito, i luoghi comuni sono fatti per esser smentiti. L’appassionato più navigato sa bene che Inghilterra, Francia e Germania negli ultimi due secoli …

Introducing Atelier de Chronométrie and why it’s the most interesting thing I saw during Salon QP. Some of the most interesting watches I saw at this year’s SalonQP were made in Barcelona, Spain. And, as if that isn’t enough, they were made by a three-person company that’s barely more than a year old. No joke.

Ming Watch magazine

Watch lover Atelier de Chronométrie…別問我為什麼西班牙以前不造錶,雖然當年貴為海上大國,鐘錶發展應該好蓬勃才對。Anyway,西班牙就是不曾以腕錶聞名,但跟香港一樣,有人買錶,就有人去修理,他們也有製錶學校,教授維修技術和知識。不過這已經是第二步,第一步是先有人夠膽去創造一個品牌。Santiago Martinez才約四十歲,過去一直從事時裝行業,愛收藏古董錶,後來更做起網上古董錶買賣,賣的主要都是Patek Philippe的舊錶。對舊錶情有獨鍾,大約四年前開始,竟萌起要創立自己的品牌,造自己的錶。絕對是亂碰亂撞,上網找watchmaker,又竟然給他找到有人跟他一樣傻。然後有idea,有一雙手,想造錶,但材料呢?
