Chase-Durer is the Swiss watch with Hollywood appeal. The company was formed in the early 90's when film producers Brandon and Marianne Chase teamed with Stefan Durer, a Swiss associate to create fine Swiss watches that were relatively affordable, directed to the needs of professional pilots.
The company has broadened its appeal with designs for women and elegant formal timepieces like the Diplomat and the Courier Automatic.
Chase-Durer watches come with a unique 30 day money back guarantee and carry a 5 year limited international warranty.
