All our creations combine aesthetic handicrafts, precious metals and functional precision. Both in public exhibitions and in private use, our instruments are unforgettable works of art that preserve the history of science
Each of our instruments is unique and is therefore numbered individually. We build each piece to the greatest precision and in loving detail. Our astrolabes are produced in co-operation with the renowned Swiss maker of astrolabes Martin Brunold. He is regarded as an authority on the subject of historical astrolabes. Our armillary spheres are oriented on historical originals from the time of Kepler, Brahe and Copernicus. We see our sundials as astronomical sculptures expressing today's zeitgeist. This is not the only reason that they regularly appear as popular exhibits in specialist shows. We continue to develop their mechanical functionality and shape their designs to customers' wishes. They too have the special elegance that characterises all astronomical measuring instruments from the CHRONOS-Manufaktur®.
When it comes to an individual design for one of our instruments, we ensure that all the customer's wishes are satisfied. We will be happy to advise you, deliver the instrument, and help you to set it up and adjust it. All of our pieces come with a lifetime guarantee.
