MARINE TIMEKEEPING WEDDED WITH 21st CENTURY INNOVATION FOR THE << MASTERS AND COMMANDERS >>
The new Swiss brand, MONTANDON&Co, is driven by the personal passions and years of expertise built up by its founder, Daniel M. Montandon. He has taken up the challenge to create innovative and highly demanding Haute Horlogerie timepieces in service to those who are seriously involved in the world of international yachting, from Lake Geneva to the world’s oceans.
The timepieces created by MONTANDON&Co are marine chronometers destined for conquering the aquatic firmament, utilizing the best traditions of marine timekeeping wedded with 21st century innovation for the ‘masters and commanders’ who view the Seven Seas as their domain. These timepieces represent the epitome of synthesis between the avant-garde and tradition, entirely manufactured in Switzerland in the famed watchmaking area of the Vallée de Joux, with the purest respect for the local craft skills and canons of Haute Horlogerie.
MONTANDON&Co’ s ambition and challenge is to create original and sophisticated timepieces in terms of movement and case, united with a holistic view of the design elements of both. For this reason we control the design and manufacture all of our components closely, starting from the initial designs to final finishing, with exact demands applied to every detail. Our philosophy also includes extreme attention to physical aspects such as comfort and usability under rigorous conditions, thus guaranteeing our timepieces are a pleasure to wear under all conditions, whilst simultaneously providing useful everyday functionality.
In the realization of this demanding philosophy, MONTANDON&Co relies on a small team of specialists united by more than ten years of collaboration, complemented by the finest craftsmen in watchmaking, working under a single banner, identifying it as a ‘company of experts.’ It is this collaboration of rich diversity, from manufacturing to marketing that allows the brand to fully control its own ideas and concepts.
