Brand Directory: Synchron

← Back to brand directory

Synchron was created in 1968 in Switzerland to bring together a number of brands utilising each brand's expertise and manufacturer resources, it was part of the larger ASUAG holding company and supported Cyma, Doxa and Ernest Borel at that time. Due to the “Quartz Crisis” in the 1970s, ASUAG sold Synchron in 1980 and the name disappeared. Time quickly passed when in 1999 Rick Marei a dive watch collector, and general manager of the DOXA Sub line of watches until 2018 when he left the current owners, brought back the Synchron Group name resurrecting Aquadive, ISOfrane and Tropic strap brands at the same time. Today they are also distributors of Traser and owners of Aquastar since 2020.
