Andreas Strehler – watchmaker and engineer

A genius designer of watch movements … still unknown for (too) many.

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.

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.
