Tech Bureau Europe has unveiled an online shop for the exclusive series of crypto-design watches by Chronoswiss. The shop boasts a user-friendly design that tells the story of each of the five available crypto-design timepieces. The purchasing process is secure and straightforward. The digital certificate for each crypto-themed watch — dedicated to Bitcoin, Ethereum, Zaif, NEM, or COMSA — is recorded on the blockchain, making it secure and impossible to manipulate, as per the official release.
According to the release, these luxury timepieces by Chronoswiss have been manufactured according to the highest Swiss watchmaking standards. They cut a unique figure on the wrist thanks to their authenticity, high-quality standards, and sophisticated technology. Limited to just 101 pieces per crypto-theme, these collector’s pieces boast a high-end aesthetic. The themes are based on what the blockchain embodies and the models include: Bitcoin – the currency; NEM – the harvest; Ethereum – the contract; Zaif – the exchange; and COMSA – the token.
Oliver Ebstein, owner, and CEO of Chronoswiss, Switzerland, commented: “With this homage to cryptocurrencies, Chronoswiss is combining the roots of traditional watchmaking expertise with the digital revolution of the new global currencies. It is thus more than natural to be curious and open-minded about the future. Cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology are the future, which Chronoswiss is also actively following and supporting. That is why we are proud to use blockchain as a marketing tool and a means of certifying our timepieces.”
“The details on each watch in the Chronoswiss Blockchain Series, for instance, the serial number and the warranty period, will be officially registered on the blockchain platform LuxTag. LuxTag is a service provider that uses the latest NEM blockchain platform to combat counterfeit goods and theft. It offers digitized tagging solutions for luxury goods and has specialized in meeting the particular demands of the watch and jewelry sector,” the release states.
Mathias Schmid, Tech Bureau Europe Ltd., Switzerland, said: “With Chronoswiss as our partner, we were able to successfully manifest our vision of five cryptocurrency-inspired luxury watches.”
Chronoswiss was founded in 1983, in the midst of the quartz crisis, when only visionaries continued to believe in the mechanical watch. Entrepreneurial spirit and congenial inventions such as the sapphire glass back encasing the movement, an unmistakable design, and the first series production of the regulator complication as a wristwatch made Chronoswiss unique and very successful.
Tech Bureau Holdings established subsidiaries in the USA and in Switzerland, which offer software and services for Blockchain technology.
