Make visible what was traditionally invisible; Classic 8, the latest watch of Louis Chevrolet Swiss Watches.

Find out how we've showcased a part that is usually ignored by the general public and how it becomes the key element of your watch! Balance: a dial of great depth in a fine and elegant watch.   

We imagined it, designed it, and created it for you!

CLASSIC 8, A LIMITED-EDITION SWISS MADE WATCH!

Some will only imagine it on their wrist while others will wear it!

We have created and designed for you this unique and avant-garde timepiece, equipped with a mechanical automatic movement ETA 2824/2.

On sale at CHF 590 (approx. USD 590), i.e. a 40% saving over the normal online price this watch would normally cost, the Classic 8 will delight the collectors of Swiss Made watches.

Your eye, and not only yours, will be immediately drawn to the 4 millimeters dial depth. It will undoubtedly be sensitive to the purity of the lines and the finesse of this clearly different timepiece.

We have played with the paradoxes of depth and thickness to create a playful design that is both technical and artistic. 

The sides of the case and the dial are open, revealing a usually hidden part, called the casing ring.

The latter, visible from both the exterior and interior of the watch, comes in black, blue or brown depending on the model you choose. It becomes the centrepiece of the Classic 8 by its possibilities of colour animation.

The dial is fixed invisibly onto the rest of the watch giving off the impression that it’s floating. The staggering depth of the display contrasts with the finesse of the watch.  

You will notice that the very technical oscillating mass decoration is in line with the raw spirit of the automatic mechanical movement.  

All these innovations, combined with the know-how of traditional watchmaking, make the Classic 8 unique. The classic, sober and elegant spirit of this watch is in keeping with the contemporary design of what is expected of a modern watch.

Some words about us 

From the automotive world to the world of watchmaking

Louis Chevrolet beeing a local and son of a watchmaker, we had to honour his name. From car mechanics to watchmaking precision, there was only one step to take. Louis Chevrolet watches are the compromise between high quality and affordable price! 

Since 2006, we manufacture and market timepieces under the name Louis Chevrolet Swiss Watches. Following our “Big Curve” in 2016, we have completely revised our collections and created watch lines with character. Such pieces will certainly not leave anyone indifferent.  

Our timepieces are aimed at a demanding clientele who shares our point of view on what a modern watch should be. 

Our technical innovations and choices in manufacturing processes highlight the quality and value of our watches. The production techniques used are in complete rupture with the traditional techniques. All our watch models are the result of several patents developed and filed by our company.

Risks and challenges

First of all, the entire Louis Chevrolet team would like to thank you for the interest in our CLASSIC 8 project.

Our experience allows us to offer innovative watches with out-of-the-box designs.
Since 2006, we have been developing and manufacturing, with our sister company, our timepieces under the name Louis Chevrolet Swiss Watches.

Our production techniques, at the cutting edge of technology, and our experience ensure that we can deliver high quality watches at reasonable prices to our contributors, all while scrupulously respecting the Swiss Made label.
We are so confident of the work we are doing, that we are offering a 5-year warranty instead of the usual 2 years.

Our Kickstarter campaign will allow us to launch a new, exclusive model of a “stunning” design, with a focus on the depth of the watch case and not just the dial as is the custom.

Do not be afraid of a lack of transparency on our part: the customer is at the centre of our philosophy.

Our factory regularly manages large watch orders. The presence of our offices in the same premises allows us to constantly have an eye on the production of our timepieces.

If, unfortunately, we are unable to deliver your watch on time, you will be notified as soon as possible: transparency and trust are the key words. But fingers crossed, up until now and for the past 12 years in operation, this has never been the case.

Upon your purchase, you will be informed of the production progress of your watch, provided in photos, videos and other means.

Thank you for your support and “Never Give Up”

Louis Chevrolet’s team
