Reconvilier watches in a new era....

Société Horlogère Reconvilier (SHR) was first officially documented in 1905. The acquisition of the “Louis Roskopf & Cie” patents around 1923 created the basis for the fast-increasing development and reputation of solid reliable and price competitive watches. Reconvilier became famous later in the 40s as “the people`s watch” and sold many pieces all over the world. During the watch crisis in the 60s the brand disappeared from the market. In 2006 passionate investors recovered and revitalized the brand – locating it in the Swiss canton of Zug.

Since its foundation Reconvilier belongs to the Swiss watch making tradition: Exclusive timepieces of exquisite craftsmanship, absolutely reliable, meticulously designed and sophisticated in terms of technical innovation. The heart of every Reconvilier timepiece is the finest, intricate, precise and always reliable mechanical Swiss movement.
    Technical innovations and selected materials determine the further development of the brand. The Reconvilier HERCULES-line builds the basis of the modern Reconvilier brand. The model “Classic” is characterized by a contemporary dial architecture, which perfectly fits in the classical watch housing. The “Classic” model is available in stainless steel (polished and satined), white gold and pink gold with various colours for dials (i.e. titanium, black, white, charmoix) and indices (i.e. silver, white, gold, blue) – assembled to order or designed by the customer.

The innovative and new-to-the world HERCULES “Golf Master” is a perfect solution for the modern golf player with highest ambition. This watch was developed as a precious, mechanical, robust, water and shock-resistant (special shock-absorber) wristwatch with analogue display for hours, minutes and seconds. Based on the Reconvilier tradition the “Golf Master” combines mechanical Swiss watch making with a high technology application as innovation for the golf enthusiast: Applied on the golf course measuring precisely the distance to the green using modern GPS-technology. To realize this unique combination Reconvilier developed a new housing alternative with the “Rotar”- mechanism giving users the opportunity to display two different applications of the “Golf Master”: on one side it shows the exact time in classical, analogue display (mechanical chronometer-automatic calibre) and the other side enables the measurement of the exact distance (in meters or yards) from the golf ball/golf player to the green using GPS data technology linking the watch directly to your smartphone – with one touch on the crown at the same time showing actual time in digital display. The “Golf Master” is available in titanium (housing) with dials in various colours (white, black, titanium) as well as various straps (leather or rubber).
