Chronoswiss was founded by master watchmaker Gerd-Rüdiger Lang and his wife
in 1983. Since February 2012, it has been under the ownership and guidance of
entrepreneurial family Ebstein from Lucerne, Switzerland. Chronoswiss remains an
independent family business and specializes in the manufacture of high-quality,
mechanical Swiss wristwatches with a passion for detail. These are exported to 26
countries, where they can be purchased from 300 select specialized dealers. The
company headquarters are located in Lucerne (Switzerland). In spring 2013, CEO Oliver
Ebstein founded a special workshop at Lucerne which is dedicated to the traditional
crafts of guilloché, skeletonization and enamel.
?The Three Apes? is a unique mechanical wristwatch combining the high arts of
skeletonizing, fire enameling and guilloche à la main, featuring a dial dedicated to the
theme of ?The Three Apes? handcrafted with guilloche décor and transparent enamel,
as well as a manually wound movement skeletonized by hand.
