In 2014 VOGARD sold its patent and all related intellectual property to IWC Schaffhausen.
“As a niche manufacturer and watch atelier we do not have the financial and structural resources to fully exploit the potential of the Timezoner® technology. I am very pleased that we found one of leading brands with the power to further develop the Timezoner® and to establish it on a world wide level” says Michael Vogt, Managing Director of VOGARD.
Due to the fact that the sale of the IP occurred on an exclusive basis, VOGARD will cease the manufacturing and selling of the Timezoner® as of 31 December 2014.
VOGARD as a company and as a brand are not affected by this transaction. Eventually, VOGARD will continue to offer After Sales Services for all VOGARD watches sold, as well as to supply its customers with spare parts.
