Epos - Brand Introduction
Collection Ouevre d'Art
Freely translated, Ouevre D’Art means “Masterpiece”. And this is exactly what this collection stands for. The most sophisticated mechanisms, the most striking designs. In short: Artistry in Watchmaking at its best!
The classic line, the true heart of EPOS. This collection captivates by its classic simplicity that is honed to perfection in every detail. Main feature of the line is its sophisticated case design with its striking grooves at the sides. As most EPOS models, a see-though case back reveals the beautifully finished movement.
Showing the true passion for mechanical watch making. For this line, EPOS engineers went with a larger case design to even better emphasize the stunning design of these elegant pieces.
Original designs, often held in retro or classical look. This collection shows the entire specter of Epos design capacity, ranging from modern-classic retrograde watches to classic and affordable everyday watches.
For the elegant modern man, the perfect companion to complement your suit for a business meeting. A strong focus of this line lays on the beautifully finished movements, often shown in a skeleton or open balance wheel version.
For the active man. EPOS sports collection captures the spirit of action, while never leaving behind the heritage of the brand and focusing on its roots in mechanical watch engineering. Models like a Pilot watch with visible balance wheel or a skeleton sports watch are only 2 example of this perfect symbiosis.
Watches are a girl’s best friend. All over the world, women start to appreciate the artistry that goes into manufacturing a mechanical watch. This is where EPOS shines, combining gorgeous designs with fascinating mechanism.

About Epos - History
In the early 80s, the success story of the traditional Swiss watch came to a standstill. The new quartz technology radically changed the face of the watch industry. Nobody wanted to produce mechanical watches any longer, with the notable exception of a few luxury brands.
Peter Hofer, a long-established expert in Swiss watchmaking, was one of the few who still believed in the future of the mechanical watch. With this vision, Hofer officially founded Epos in 1983. The roots of its underlying know-how, however, reach much further back: From the very beginning, Hofer partnered up with Jean Fillon, the heir of the James Aubert dynasty that goes back to the early 1900s. Together, they laid the foundation of the company’s success with innovative movement modifications, such as the Epos jumping hour or the Epos regulator. For 20 years, Hofer remained faithful to his vision, developing stunning collections incorporating fascinating mechanisms, always in close cooperation with Jean Fillon.
In the early 2000s, Peter Hofer looked for successors who shared his passion for mechanical watches. He finally found them in the Chonge-Forster family, a family with deep roots in the Swiss watch industry: Ursula Forster, who became the new president of the company, stems from a Swiss watchmakers’ family. Her husband Tamdi, who took over as CEO, worked as a top manager in the Swiss watch industry for many years.
Together they took over from Peter Hofer in 2002 and have developed the brand Epos, broadened the product portfolio and expanded internationally. Building up on the long heritage and knowledge embedded in the company, they have always focused on creating highly sophisticated mechanical masterpieces at affordable prices, staying true to the company slogan: Artistry in Watchmaking.
In early 2018, Singi Dirk Chonge took the reins from his parents and stepped in as CEO. As member of the Chonge-Forster family, he basically grew up in the Swiss watch industry. Additionally, he has a background in finance and online marketing, which puts him into the perfect position to maneuver this traditional company into the modern area of Swiss watch making.
