THE BRAND 1. EARLY STAGES & STRATEGY As watchmaking enthusiasts, we have imagined at length what the most remarkable watch would look like. The level of precision and reliability, the timeless design, the perceived quality, the proportions, and the comfort at the wrist are elements to which we attach a particular importance. To achieve the highest level of accomplishment, we have combined the most modern techniques, sometimes innovative, and our know-how. The entirety of the procedures usually applied when designing a watch have been redesigned and reconsidered. To reach this level of excellence, the chronology has been essential. First, the creation of our watches, and then the development of the structure necessary for their realization. 2. FREEDOM & INDEPENDANCE Loniswatches is a totally independent company. From the beginning, we have enjoyed a total freedom of design, creation, technical choices and qualification of our suppliers. For the manufacturing of our components, we selected the best retailers in accordance with our exacting standards.


3. QUALITY & PRICE Each component used in the manufacturing of our watches is subject to rigorous controls. This irreproachable quality, complemented by our attention to detail, allows us to offer an exemplary quality-price ratio. Loniswatches bears testimony to the possibility of offering a high-end watch at a price accessible to the broadest public. The culmination of our project is crowned by an unprecedented selling price. A significant reduction in margins and direct sale on our official website make your luxury dream accessible.

Swiss made Beyond the criteria defined by the law, Swiss Made is inseparable from Loniswatches. More than a label, this reference stands for unequaled know-how. This philosophy applies to the level of movements as well as the entirety of the completed watch. For this reason, 100% of our watches are guaranteed Swiss Made.

Ambassadors DAVID PASQUIET (L’INSTANT CHOCOLAT) A native of France, David Pasquiet arrived in Switzerland in 1988. He first worked as a chef in a family run hotel in Verbier and then, for 10 years, in one of the most prestigious hotels in the ski resort Crans-Montana in Valais. David and his wife, Virginie, subsequently bought a nougat shop which they quickly transformed into a chocolate shop, allowing David to let his creativity run wild. His passion for chocolate was immediate, as was his success. After opening a first shop, L’Instant Chocolat, in Crans-Montana, they opened a second shop in Sion in 2007, followed by a third in Vevey in 2017. Passionate about his art, David invents new products and textures every year. Just like a designer, he debuts his collections, at Christmas or Easter, and often participates in salons and competitions. In 2013, he was given the title of Swiss Chocolatier of the Year in Berne, where he dominated the competition.

« In many ways, watchmaking and the fabrication of craft chocolate are alike. It is a matter of crafts that require precision, high quality, and an abundance of creativity » David Pasquiet


ALISON PICHEL (MANNEQUIN ET 2EME DAUPHINE MISS SUISSE ROMANDE 2015) A life-long fashion enthusiast, the Valais resident Alison Pichel embarked on the adventure of the Miss and Mister Suisse Romande competition in 2015. She finished second runner-up and was soon after recruited by a Swiss modeling agency. This first experience in the fashion industry opened the doors to many modeling opportunities, which led to her participation in fashion shows throughout Switzerland and her posing for numerous photographers. Aside from the world of fashion, she takes great pleasure in her profession as a specialised educator. The social sphere, interaction with others, and travelling are areas that are close to her heart. It is through her Instagram account that this globe trotter gives free reign to her creativity. The social network allows Alison to bring together her love of fashion and her numerous travels, and to share them with her community.

ÂŤ Watchmaking is part of the world in which I am evolving, and I appreciate the opportunity to represent a brand from Valais which offers quality and elegant pieces. Âť Alison Pichel


Representing the craft and fashion industries, Alison and David convey the merits of precision, authenticity, creativity, and charm in complete harmony with the philosophy of LONISWATCHES.
