The story of two family businesses: The Schindler saddlery from Hann. Gmünd and the Ochoa watchmakers from El Salvador. The know-how and passion for watches and leather as the perfect combination.

Schindler Ochoa is a small design studio that brings together versatile artists, designers, developers and an odd-one-out admin queen who keeps everyone on the ground.

The brand moves in the mix of classic and minimalist design. In their opinion, minimalist designs are too often boring and neo-classical looks are often too overloaded.

That is why Schindler Ochoa wants all of their products to conform to their own design philosophy. The concept of great products is therefore a clean simplicity, paired with timeless, classic design principles of harmony, balance and symmetry. There are also some subtle, classic design features.

The manufacturing of an Evolvens wristwatch is more like the work of a high tech blacksmith than a filigree technician. And yet all components are perfected down to the last detail.

The young and wild

Founded in 2009, Evolvens watches have evolved into something very special. All the main elements, the cases, dials, crowns and other accessories are manufactured exclusively by local suppliers. Thus, Evolvens is one of the only two existing Hungarian watch brands, besides the be-spoke-only manufactory Bexei.

Through the construction of many prototypes, hundreds of plans and designs, and overcoming technological obstacles, an exceptional watch brand has been created that reflects the youthful dynamism and strength of the vibrant metropolis of Budapest.

Evolvens, just like Chronofactum, stands for the feeling that the right idea, with strong will and inexhaustible perseverance, can achieve anything.

Make your Evolvens unique. Each of the limited edition watches can be individually engraved, for example with the name, monogram or signature of the wearer. You will receive this addition exclusively at Chronofactum free of charge. We will contact you directly after your order.

In addition to the development of the watches, Evolvens also attaches great importance to the accessories. The straps and clasps are developed and manufactured entirely in Hungary – with meticulous attention to every detail, new ideas and combinations and the use of first-class ingredients.

The first steps were hard for Bartosz, unrelated to this industry he had never before learned from his own mistakes and was making some unexplored paths. After registering a patent mark for the whole European Union, he started looking for a supplier of parts. In 2015, he flew to Hong Kong to sign a cooperation agreement with a component manufacturer and thought the worst was behind him…but it was a tough design process. The Grey Seal was the first model of Balticus and despite many prototypes, they couldn’t avoid mistakes and shortcomings. 

Outstanding ideas were quickly verified by the capabilities, lead times and delivery times. At that time, Bartosz didn’t know about it yet, but it took 8 months to prepare the final project, starting with a white sheet of paper. Despite the difficulties, long implementation process and huge financial outlays, Balticus managed to release the finished product. In this way, they entered the market as the new, indepenent watch brand Balticus
