"In the early 2000s, one of the most interesting watch companies to keep your eye on is one that's fallen somewhat out of sight in recent years. Chronoswiss was an early leader in the post-quartz mechanical renaissance – the company was founded in 1983 by Gerd-Rüdiger Lang, who began as a watchmaker at Heuer, and who left before the company was purchased by Techniques d'Avant-Garde and became TAG Heuer. Chronoswiss, which was originally headquartered in Munich, had as its stock in trade the use of new-old-stock movements from Marvin, and also Enicar, both once very well-known makers of midrange watches. Enicar produced the famous "Sherpa" series of timepieces as well, but both companies are long gone, victims of the Quartz Crisis, and successive rounds of consolidation of the Swiss watchmaking industry. Enicar SA, like Marvin, was also a movement maker, and the Chronoswiss caliber 122 is derived from the Enicar 165 automatic movement. "
