Formex Watch SA - Innovative - Unusual - Exciting – Extreme (since the year 1999)
Formex Watch SA is headquartered in Lengnau Biel/Bienne,
right in the heart of the Swiss Watch Industry.
FORMEX WATCH SA
Formex Watch SA, founded in the year 1999, ranks among the now-generation watchmaking companies. Instead of looking back to yesteryear, Formex is focused on the here and now, with an innovative approach to what’s ahead tomorrow.
Formex Watch SA is always a step ahead of time. The Swiss watch company is globally acclaimed as the inventor of the patented suspension system. Always looking forward, Formex tests the limits of feasibility and challenges connoisseurs of unusual watches with unexpected technical features.
Formex Watch SA has its own philosophy: The accuracy of quartz movements, found in most watches produced on a worldwide scale since the 1970s, can hardly be improved. Mechanical movements, the true marvels of engineering that built the reputation of Swiss watches, can be improved only in minor details. Therefore Formex leverages its strengths in the functionality of its watches and is concentrating in developing a new, mechanically inspired ecological drive propulsion system matching at the same time the accuracy of quartz movements.
Formex Watch SA is deliberately dedicated to functional design. In this respect, Formex is a role model – as evidenced by enhancements that stand out in all collections. Comfort on the wrist and user-friendly operation are the main themes. What makes these timepieces so unmistakable is sporty looks and the ruggedness showcased by the unique design concept that is so typical for Formex.
Formex Watch SA knows and implements what customers want and appreciate. The telescopic suspension system and the starting point of the tachymeter at 6 o’clock – it shifts the 120 km marker precisely to 12 o’clock – are just two examples. Further Formex signature elements are smart chronograph functions and the ingenious tachymeter hand that is parked at the bottom of the dial.
Formex Watch SA is the brain child of watch designer and CEO Hans Peter Grädel:
It was always my ambition to create a watch with a motor sports aura. It all started with the patented suspension system that simply belongs to all Formex 4SPEED watches. This was followed by a unique tachymeter hand that we developed in-house and implemented with motor sports in mind. Such features and superior engineering combined with sporty styling are what characterize our collections. I am sure that our timekeeping instruments are much more than trendy; they are literally ahead of their time.
