but TRUE

TIMEKEEPER GERMANY is offering a EUR 3,200 / USD 4,500 UNIKAT Watch for our GIVE-A-WAY.


Example of the TIMEKEEPER UNIKAT series

About TIMEKEEPER
Timekeeper Chronometrie stands for reunion of historical movements with high quality cases, which are finished in highest grade by modern production-methods.



Some unique details make every Timekeeper Chronometrie watch become a real collectors-piece. Only the best and sometimes refined movements are "reborn" as a limited or unique watch. The interplay of old watchmakers-art and modern production-methods allow the development of those fantastic watches.
In our watches, you will find everything from state of the art ETA movements to historically unique movements, which date back to the very early days of European watch-making.

However, there are fundamental differences in the production process of these watches.

The easiest way to produce watches is the use of state of the art ETA movements. The easy accessibility of drawings, spare parts and the ever-repeating production steps make its production efficient and effortless. Generally these movements are available in an unlimited quantity. Finally all components are put together so that a watch is born, which will find its way to the consumer market. Revising a watch movement like this is normally unnecessary.



More special and demanding is the production of watches with New Old Stock movements of the 1940s and 1980s. Original drawings are mostly lost and the movements have to be re-measured. The production of each case is done exclusively. Normally only a limited quantity of 50 to 300 watches is available, which turns the watches into items for collectors and aficionados. Matching dials and hands are often hard to find. Moreover the movements have to be disassembled and even though they have never been used before they have to be completely revised. For us, real watch-making starts right here.

For the production of watches with historical movements from the late 18th century and older, singular skills are required. Special winding mechanisms often make the case construction a really innovative process. In almost every single detail you will find a unique part: every case, every pusher, every dial, even each hand is adjusted individually. The movement is completely disassembled, cleaned and decorated, if need be. Much love and passion is applied in such a process, leading to real unique pieces, which are highly appreciated by collectors and aficionados.

4. My best guess as to how many historical movements TIMEKEEPER has is 400 based on the fact that they have 50-300 for sale at a given time (in watches) and they probably have 100-200 extra in case...

And, of course, they're not the average watchmaker because of the heritage in the movements they use which often require specially crafted components to make a new watch. Very unique and full of rich history, a true grail if I ever saw one!
