About This Watch

The Element Automatic Chronograph transcends the traditional barriers of diver, pilot and sport watches. The tested and proven Swiss Made Valjoux 7750 Automatic movement keeps things running smoothly; the steel case means you can take it anywhere. Leaning on its incomparable look and refined finishes, the Element brings a new kind of boldness to Swiss luxury timepieces.

  • Robust. Built to take a beating, this stainless steel case resists the elements. The entire timepiece is water resistant up to 100m/330ft.
  • Luxurious. Hand-finished with flawless precision, a Formex Element case is composed of 38 individual components and features the finest materials and a high quality Swiss Made Automatic Chronograph movement.
  • Comfortable. Our patented Case Suspension System and carbon fiber composite clasp with patented Fine Adjustment System adapt to your wrist movements and daily adventures. 
  • Bold. This watch comes alive with facets of brushed, mirror-polished and sandblasted surfaces, elevating the powerful shapes and elegant lines of the stainless steel case.
  • Yours. You don’t have to sit in the lap of luxury to put something luxurious on your wrist. Our direct-to-consumer approach means you'll get the best quality at a fraction of the cost of any comparable Swiss timepiece.

Suspension System

Since the beginning of Formex in 1999, the patented Case Suspension System has been an integral part of every single Formex timepiece. Its two main functions are:

  • absorbs shocks to protect the mechanical movement from heavy impacts
  • adds to the comfort on the wrist by adapting to the wearer’s movements

Modeled with high-performance bikes and racing cars in mind, the Formex patented case suspension system works by integrating four springs between the upper and lower watch case. The result is the ultimate shock absorption system designed to protect the mechanical movement and deliver unparalleled comfort to the wearer.

This patented case suspension system brings form and function together for Formex Swiss watches. It’s functional, it’s state of the art engineering and it’s unquestionably unique - all in one watch.

Fine-Adjustment Clasp

This in-house developed folding clasp is made of injected carbon fiber composite on a stainless steel or titanium buckle. It features a patented gradual 7mm fine-adjustment system that allows to micro adjust the length of the strap without taking off the watch. As our wrists change size during the day and in different temperatures, this system gives a bespoke fit no matter the conditions, improving the comfort and fit on the wrist.

In the Press

"The Formex Element has shifted my perspective of many watches I own and review. It’s that good." Joshua Clare-Flagg, Owner of WIAA

"Great value to price ratio. Formex gets a lot of the little details right, and the case suspension system is genuinely cool." Ariel Adams, Founder of ablogtowatch.com

Read the Hands-on Review

"In terms of price the Formex Element is a mechanical chronograph at entry level, however with regard to all the features the watch is packed with my conclusion is that this extremely well executed Formex watch is worth its money. I tend to say the Formex Element is a bargain." Mike Stuffler, Moderator at large

Read the Hands-on Review

"I wore it on a recent business trip. When I took it off at airport security, the guy said to put it in a pocket as “You wouldn’t want something that nice to go missing at the other end”. I’ve had Rolex go through those scanners in plain sight previously…". Tony Villa, Owner of WatchThoughts

"There are so many little details that I found myself gushing over both personally as a watch nut enthusiast and professionally as a watch reviewer/blogger." Stephen Mazinger, Owner of TimeToBlogWatches

Bezahlbarer Traum

Noch kein grosser Name. Aber eine großartige und bezahlbare Qualität. An diesem herrlichen Chrono erkenne ich jeden Tag neue Dinge, die die ausgezeichnete Qualität unterstreichen. An meiner Element ist alle, aber wirklich alles durchdacht umgesetzt worden. Ich möchte hier keine technischen Einzelheiten beschreiben, das wurde bereits genügend kommuniziert von Profis, die das besser können.
Ich besitze nun bereits 2 Formex und werde mir bewusst, dass die grossen Marken schlicht zu teuer erscheinen und es wohl auch zum Teil sind.
Zu meiner grossen Freude durfte ich das Formex Team auch persönlich erleben.
Liebenswerte Menschen, deren Produkte ich daher nun noch lieber und aus Überzeugung trage. Die Krone bleibt im Safe.
Formex zu tragen bedeutet, clever entscheiden zu können.
MEHR UHR GEHT NICHT!
Jedenfalls nicht zu so fairen Preisen.
Freuen wir uns doch, dass es Formex gibt.
Ich bin kein Stück mit dem Unternehmen verbandelt, sondern ein inzwischen überzeugter und hochbegeisteter Kunde.

Einfach nur TOP!

Eine wunderschöne sportlich wie elegante Uhr. Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis unschlagbar. Sehr bequem, obwohl es sich um eine eher grössere Uhr handelt. Ich habe sie täglich an (mehr als meine 2 Omega-Uhren). Einfaches und handliches Schliessmechanismus, was nicht bei vielen Marken-Uhren so elegant gelöst ist wie bei der Formex. Desweitern können die Uhrenarmbänder sehr einfach selber ausgetauscht werden. Ich besitze für dieses Modell eine braune und schwarze.
Erwähnenswert ist auch der tolle Service. Sehr sehr freundlich, speditiv und unkompliziert.
Ich bin im Besitz von 4 Formex-Uhren plus eine habe ich auch verschenkt.
Wer also noch keine Formex hat, ist selbst Schuld ;-)
