The Jura Arc in Switzerland, a stretch of land between Geneva and Basel, is perhaps better known as "Watch Valley." This is of course because it is the epicenter of the Swiss watchmaking industry. So when you find out that Techne Instruments calls it their home, you understand that they make timepieces of extremely high quality. Under family-owned parent company, Vantgard, they design and produce chronometers that represent a return to the fundamental elements of watchmaking - accuracy, reliability, and durability under extreme conditions. These watches are built for adventure.
