WHO WE ARE
LANCASTER name, can be traced back to 17th-century, with the English
watchmaker Edward Higgins.
He was an apprentice of Christian Huygens, the great Dutch mathematician
and horologist often credited with the invention of the balance spring, one
of the most important creations in the development of the watch.
Huygens passed his Geneva-based business on Higgins, who renamed it LANCASTER (his home-town) and became known throughout Europe for the quality of his watches.
To this day, LANCASTER founders has re-established the Brand, taking
inspiration from Higgins’ work, naming the brand as his ancient business.
Since 1992 LANCASTER is an independent brand that produce innovative and sophisticated reliable timepieces in contemporary design for its fans and loyal consumers.
