About us

The combination of our watch making profession as well from the technical side as from the designers‘ view and my great passion for classic automobiles have led to a Bavarian Crono series of watches unparalleled in appearance, detail and high quality standards. These watches are mouthwatering items for the classic car enthusiast.

A look behind the scenes of Bavarian Crono

The watch makers in the small but innovative company located in the small town of Hirschwald in the Northern Part of Bavaria have succeeded to reach the high standard and self set aims with technical know-how and the necessary “petrol head” approach.

At first the aim was to develop a stainless steel watch case matching the appearance and the charisma of that special era of automobiles from the Fifties and Sixties. The most demanding task was the next step: To transform the characteristic face of the classic speedometers in unparalleled details to the face of the watches. During aging color and surface of the original speedometers change. To adopt this “natural” ageing Bavarian Crono incorporated special techniques for finishing the faces and hands of the speedometer watches. Special attention had to be given to the minute hands. Their appearance match the original archetypes of the various VW Golf-, Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar, BMW, Bugatti and Beetle automobiles. To keep the original appearance of the hour hands they are painted in black while the small white peak guarantees easy reading.

The quartz movement of the renowned Swiss company Ronda – accuracy paired with reliability – is the choice for this handmade series by Bavarian Crono. The felicitous appearance, the alliance of highest quality and a sense for detail work, makes Bavarian Crono watch series to highly desired items for collectors.

By limiting each series of these speedometer watches Bavarian Crono takes care that your personal watch will stay an exclusive piece of art. The basis for additional legendary and highly fascinating Classic Crono watches has already been laid and the vast community of Bavarian Crono aficionados can look forward to new watches.
