Maîtres du Temps Watches

“I saw my role as a connector and as catalyst, bringing people together to come up with ideas and providing the template for independent watchmakers to be seen through a collaborative effort by blending the different styles and talents of the watchmakers, I was able to realize my vision”.

The short history of the Maitres du Temps company began with the story connected to other watch brand Roger Dubuis. Once Steven Holtzman, the founder of the Maitres du Temps company, was the official representative of the Roger Dubuis brand in the USA and the head of the Helveta Time Corp. However, after court examinations between the Helveta Time and the Roger Dubuis companies, the latter having a lot of problems, declared itself a bankrupt. As a result, a new watchmaking company appeared at the watch market. The name “Maitres du Temps” means “Lords of Time”. While establishing the brand, Steven had the aim to find the best masters and give them an opportunity to create the only single model. And he was very lucky! Instead of one he could find at once three masters of the watchmaking business: Roger Dubuis sooner worked at the Patek Philippe company, Christophe Claret and Peter Speake-Marin.

The fruit of their combined labour did not keep waiting much, and in 2008, in Geneva, at the Beau-Rivage Hotel the real masterpiece - the amazing chronograph called Chapter One was presented. At present it is the most complicated watch in the whole world and the single chronograph at which at once three watchmakers worked. Skilful abilities of three geniuses: Christophe Claret's ability to create the most complicated movements of wristwatches, Roger Dubuis' experience in the high watchmaking art and Peter Speake-Marin's ability to combine traditional watchmaking craft and modern trends perfectly matches one another in this début model. The model is a one-button chronograph containing a tourbillon, a retrograde date indicator and GTM, a weekday and moonphase indicators. A dial is made of black gold of hallmark 750.
