After three-and-half years successfully establishing and developing the brand, CEO Bruno Jufer is leaving Antoine Martin SA. Martin Braun, master watchmaker and founder, takes over at the helm with effect from 2014.
Bruno Jufer was appointed CEO when the company was founded in 2010 and has played a pivotal role in its initial years. During this period, the watch brand that grew out of the company launched its first collection at Baselworld 2011 with a Grande Complication in the form of a Perpetual Calendar. In the following years came a Tourbillon with a Perpetual Calendar and a trailblazing new development, the Slow Runner. The two latter collections were both nominated for the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie Genève.
Antoine Meier, Chairman of the Board of Directors: “The company has been successfully established and now has the ideal strategic positioning for the future. We are deeply grateful to Bruno Jufer for his contribution during this period. Now that the foundations have been laid, the time has come for Martin Braun to take control at Antoine Martin. Under the new management, we can look forward to the presentation of a sensational new development from Antoine Martin at Baselworld 2014″.
Located in the Lucerne area of Switzerland, Antoine Martin is famed for its high-end luxury time-pieces and the technical quality of their movements.
Martin Braun (the watchmaker) and entrepreneur Antoine Meier founded the company three years ago with the objective of creating a great watch and house designed movement, it took two years of intensive work before the first Antoine Martin watch left the factory. It’s this passion and innovation that has helped the brand garner the excellent reputation that it holds today.
