Swiss Prestige Ltd. is established in 1988 by Emil J.F. Klingelfuss and Jean-Claude Biver with the purpose of representing Swiss watch manufacturers in Asia. From the very beginning Swiss Prestige specialised itself in marketing and distribution of mechanical Swiss watches. Blancpain and Oris were amongst the first brands Swiss Prestige helped to build up in various countries across Asia. For over 15 years (1988-2005) Swiss Prestige was the sole distributor of Blancpain in many countries in Asia, before handing it back to the Swatch Group as a successfully developed and established brand. Other exclusive brands Swiss Prestige helped to establish in Asia in the past are amongst others Corum, Hublot, Gerald Genta and Ulysse Nardin.
Today the company is firmly established as a leading distributor of fine Swiss watches throughout Asia. Through its head office and subsidiaries, Swiss Prestige represents well-known Swiss watch brands in Hong Kong, China, Taiwan and Australia.
