Karl-Friedrich Scheufele is known for his love of chronometry and fascination for the history of watchmaking. During his tenure as Co-President, he has transformed the company’s men’s watchmaking operation into one of the most respected manufacturers in Switzerland.

Today, Chopard produces 80,000 watches a year and has over 2000 employees.

Another of Mr. Scheufele’s outstanding achievements includes rebuilding a watch manufacture in Fleurier, which produces the L.U.C. collection of Haute Horlogerie. That company celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.

CONGRATULATIONS from PuristS everywhere!
