Technotime wins third price in the “Tourbillon” watch category in the Chronométrie 2011 International Timing Competition

On 20th October 2011, the second edition of the Chronométrie International Timing Competition celebrated technical expertise and reliability by unveiling the winners.

The Les Brenets, Switzerland based movement-maker Technotime took third place in the prestigious “Tourbillon” watch category – with its hand-wound in-house made Calibre TT791.50.

During the stringent tests, this calibre stood up to three batteries of shock tests and to magnetism-resistance test imposed by the Haute Ecole Arc, all validated by the Besançon Observatory and the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC).

Technotime Tourbillon watch

Technotime won third place in the “Tourbillon” watch category behind GreubelForsey (1st) and Chopard (2nd).

While developed with far more modest means than its peers, Calibre TT791.50 distinguished itself by the regularity of its rating. Fitted with a 60-second tourbillon and a twin barrel ensuring a five-day power reserve, this calibre proudly takes its place as one of the most resistant and accurate in Switzerland.

Focusing firmly on manufacturing quality, Technotime has earned authentic credibility within just ten years and is now considered an extremely reliable “motoriste”, as movement suppliers are known within the Swiss watch industry.

This results from unremitting hard work, a perpetual quest for performance and major structural investments.

Technotime belongs to the exclusive club of companies capable of making balance-springs, which are also fitted in the TT7791.50 calibres.
