Fascinated by engineering from a very early age, Jean-François Mojon was introduced to the watchmaking trade through his father, who worked in the technical watch business. After earning his diploma in engineering and microtechnology in Le Locle, Switzerland, Mojon joined the industry working on research and development of movements and new complications for several international timepiece brands, including Swatch Group and IWC.
In 2005, he launched his own company, Chronode SA. Specializing in the development of high complication movements, the company is based in Le Locle. At the historic heart of Swiss watchmaking, the industrial epicenter sits at the cross roads of timepiece tradition and modern innovation – the perfect place to continue the Opus experience.
