Time Æon Foundation

Bridging the Past and Future of Fine Watchmaking.

Time Aeon Foundation

The Time Æon Foundation is a small group of independent watchmakers with the aim of elevating the image of their professional and evolving its development.

In the foundation’s own words:

“Following a series of alarming observations, and having identified some serious shortcomings in the watchmaking field, in 2005 the idea was had to start a foundation to preserve outstanding craftsmanship. After much reflection, it became apparent that a foundation was the right solution as it was the only organisation truly suited to the objectives we had set ourselves, and one that we had set our hearts on creating.” –Source

Some of the topics covered in this caliber listing:


As self-proclaimed Guardians of Knowledge, the group strives to “take the art of watchmaking to its pinnacle and keep it well above passing trends.”

With that goal in mind, the foundation’s stated objectives are as follows (source):

  • Index and catalogue endangered crafts.
  • Preserve the crafts associated with watchmaking excellence and help pass them on to new generations.
  • Help protect the world’s watchmaking heritage.

  • Support the training of future independent watchmakers wishing to promote watchmaking excellence.
