Andreas Strehler – watchmaker and engineer
A genius designer of watch movements … still unknown for (too) many.
(Andreas Strehler, Lune Exacte)
2020 – 25 years of independent watchmaking. His first job in the industry, back in 1991, was at Renaud & Papi. His sponsor was Robert Greubel and other (well known!) colleagues have been Bart & Tim Groenefeld, Stephen Forsey and Christophe Claret to mention only a few. Andreas Strehler was proposed as a member of the AHCI (Académie Horlogére des Créateurs Indépendants) by Paul Gerber.
(Andreas Strehler, behind the scenes but central to so many…)
Today he is known (to industry insiders) as the engineer for brands, but also as a watchmaker. He has some outstanding watches to offer. For whatever reason, still after so many years he is almost like a secret even for collectors of fine watchmaking.
(Written by Horlbeck and Krausz on Andreas Strehler)
If we got your attention and you would like to know more about Andreas Strehler – the engineer and the watchmaker – we can recommend a few books. The first one (see above) is dedicated to his work only: Andreas Strehler – Engineer for the Brands, Watchmaker for the Few; written by Michael Philip Horlbeck and Alexander Krausz.
In addition, we recommend:
- The Hands of Time – AHCI; written by Ian Skellern
- Masters of Contemporary Watchmaking; written by Michael Clerizo
- The Wristwatch Handbook – a comprehensive guide to mechanical wristwatches; written by Ryan Schmidt
Enjoy reading and research, it´s half of the fun – at least for the team from the eclecticum.
