Located on Lake Biel’s shores, Ipsach lies near the foot of the jura mountains. This scenic area of Switzerland has not only been home to winemaking for centuries, but also various small and highly specialized watch manufacturers.
The solitude and atmosphere of tradition surrounding the town, the natural beauty of the lake and forest, made it an ideal location for the founding of Thomas Prescher Haute Horlogerie in 2002. This decision to found an independent Swiss watchmaking workshop was naturally preceded by many years of intense study and apprenticeships.
Prescher is continuing his work in this basic philosophy, today, creating complicated timepieces with exceptional designs and in his own words "Watchmaking on the most extreme level has lost it functional sense. Watches created by passion become beauty and harmony to carress eyes and soul with esthetic.".
