The connection over design and engineering was instant. Over a year, Rob in California and Marco in Geneva riffed on cars, music, watches and a shared fascination with mechanical icons, particularly the iconic sport-classic chronographs of the late 1960s and ‘70s. From this discussion an idea was born; to create mighty timepieces that would reimagine high-watchmaking. It was at this point that a decisive encounter with a third pillar of the collaboration took place. Marco shared his idea for a unique chronograph with famed Master watchmaker Jean-Marc Wiederrecht.
Over the last few decades, Jean-Marc Wiederrecht has forged a reputation as one of Switzerland’s greatest and most creative independent watchmakers. A fervent defender of authentic watchmaking, he is focused on preserving and developing its unicity, leading him to found Agenhor in 1996. Based in Geneva, Agenhor specializes in the design of complex mechanical modules for some of the world’s most prestigious brands. Jean-Marc’s experience, knowledge and inventiveness have earned Agenhor’s creations a number of prestigious awards, including several at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève.
