Andreas Strehler is legendary in the field of watchmaking. The Swiss watchmaker is often described as the ‘Engineer for the brands’. His impressive body of work includes the H. Moser & Cie Perpetual One, the Harry Winston Opus 7, the Maître du Temps Chapter 3 and the Maurice Lacroix Le Chronographe.
Within the confines of his atelier in Switzerland, Strehler manufactures movement components to exacting standards. Thereafter, these parts are meticulously finished before being subsequently assembled by hand into complete, peerless horological creations.
Sitting alongside uncompromising hand finishing, Strehler uses state of the art design and construction software to produce breathtaking work. Each component is cleverly designed in such a way that an experienced watchmaker, with sufficient time and skill, is able to easily rebuild the movement with traditional tools and materials.
Andreas Strehler and his company, Uhr Teil AG, are based in Sirnach, Switzerland. Individuals are invited to tour his impressive atelier and witness first-hand how precision parts are manufactured and finished.
