Ochs und junior

First certified ochs und junior moon phase leaves the workshop

Swiss brand buoyed by completion of COSC certification process

Ochs und junior has completed the COSC certification process, the company has confirmed.

This certification for Swiss watch movements and watches was introduced in 1973 by the five watchmaking cantons of Berne, Geneva, Neuchâtel, Solothurn, and Vaud.

It registers a chronograph as a unique piece, with a number engraved on its movement. 

The certification of ochs und juior’s chronographs was carried out by the COSC-laboratory in Le Locle.

At the beginning of December, the first order of a customized ochs und junior moon phase with certified movement left its workshop for the United States.

The firm said it will share more on this particular timepiece in the New Year.

ochs und junior was founded in 2006 by Ludwig Oechslin, Beat Weinmann and Kurt König, the latter the owner at the time of Embassy Lucerne, one of the leading retailers in Europe.

Today, ochs und junior is owned by the Oechslin family and based in La Chaux-de-Fonds, the centre of Swiss watchmaking.

The workshop is located in a typical, early 20th century villa built as the annex of a former factory where the owners and managers used to live.
