Chronoswiss and Fogg Distribution have “peacefully terminated” their contract, according to Tiago Sa-Henriques, the distributor’s owner.
Fogg Distribution has been representing the 30 year-old Swiss watchmaker since 2015, but has not secured a single retailer in the UK in that time.
Mr Sa-Henriques told WatchPro he was not given the tools he needed to properly represent the brand. “I did not even have a full collection of watches to show,” he says.
Although he says that the separation was amicable from both sides, Mr Sa-Henriques did admit that the relationship had challenges over the two years he represented Chronoswiss. “We are from different planets. I say potato, they say onions,” he jokes.
A Chronoswiss spokesperson said the company hopes to issue a statement soon on the future situation in the UK.
