BASSE BROYE Elégance Collection

Basse Broye is a contemporary Swiss watch brand founded by Mr Lenaïc Tschanz, a young watchmaker and Mr Andreas Knecht, a local businessman. The venture started with the simple dream of owning a unique skeleton watch. This inspired the development of a limited production of Basse Broye watches for those looking to distinguish themselves.

Revealed to the general public at the prestigious Baselworld 2014, new watch-makers Basse Broye have already enchanted connoisseurs of the art of horology.

Both founder and watch maker have shared their passion with others by founding Basse Broye, a fine mechanical watch-making company in the greatest of Swiss traditions. The name pays homage to a beautiful region, steeped in history. Indeed, back in ancient times the town of Avenches was known as Aventicum and was the capital of Roman Switzerland.

To this day it is one of the most important archaeological sites in Switzerland, and its superb amphitheatre bears witness to that. Avenches was also the hometown of aviation pioneers René Grandjean and Ernest Failloubaz, who flew the first flight in Swiss history in 1910.

Basse Broye Elégance Collection

Unveiled at Swiss creative Lab exhibition in 2014, this exceptional mechanical timepiece collection was inspired by the classic timeless designs and modern state of the art skeleton technology. The elegant lines are distinguished by a skeleton Swiss movement, a discreet original dial, and a genuine alligator leather strap.
