About the founders
Founders Connie Ng and Robert Dabi officially launched CRONOMETRICS in 2016, following over a year of comprehensive development and fine tuning. Robert, who is head of design, has over eleven years of professional experience in various aspects of art, illustration and design, culminating in his dedication to watches after he helped construct the brand ZIIIRO. He oversees all of Cronometrics’ creative direction, channeling into it the innovative passion and modernist artistry that encompasses every aspect of his life. Connie, on the other hand, uses her considerable business acumen as the company’s sales and marketing manager to provide a dependable corporate infrastructure for introducing the line in key markets across the world. Completing the fittingly opportune “trio” behind the brand is consultant Derick Ip, whose six years in the watch industry gives him an insider’s perspective on trends, production and technical matters. Together they are committed to delivering the future of timepieces today.
Purity in design is at the very heart of CRONOMETRICS with the triangle serving as both the centerpiece and core concept. The points represent the tri-color spectrum as well as the three dimensions humans can perceive. The triangle is recognized by designers and engineers as the most stable physical shape. The watches embody both the triangle’s mathematical and geometric abstraction while highlighting the cultural recognition of the number “three” as the very manifestation of creation.
The line’s inherent elegance goes beyond its look of pristine simplicity, deceptively concealing its complex production that exceeds the conventional approach used by most other watch brands. One of several examples is the matched rendering of the metallic color plating and indicator painting as they appear in perfect alignment and combinations on the double layer dial. This and all of its many other features undergo a rigorous set of quality inspections to ensure its exceptional aesthetic as well as the performance of its internal mechanism. International in scope, the watches are designed in Germany, using Japanese precision movement, Italian leather and stainless steel straps, with corporate headquarters located in Hong Kong.
