Introduction
Elite class watches are extremely popular all over the world, and
the demand for them has been constantly growing. This popularity does
not depend upon mere quality, craftsmanship and reliability as luxury
watches a

rm owner’s social status, style and taste. Luxury watches
have become statements of exclusivity. Apart from status-driven
considerations, the purchase of luxury watches is a solid long-term
investment that o

ers steady returns in future. In accordance with
the recent edition of marketing principles (Kotler et al., 2016), luxury
watches fall into the category of speciality consumer products, which are
usually characterized by unique characteristics and brand identi

cation
for which a signi

cant group of buyers is willing to make a special
purchase e

ort, strong brand prefer...

Watch empires
According to the Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry FH (Verband
der Schweizer Uhrenindustrie FH), Switzerland produces around 30
million timepieces per year, which accounts for 2.5% of the global watch
output (in terms of units). However, in value terms, this country accounts
for over 50% of the world watch market. Swiss watchmakers produce
about 95% of watches priced at over 1,000 francs (~1,000 USD).

Who buys Swiss watches?
The current size of the global luxury watch market is enormous
and exceeds 20 billion US dollars per year. The main markets include
European and Asian countries, speci

cally the UAE. The demand for
Swiss-made watches has been demonstrating the highest growth rate
in Asia and Europe, which makes sense in the post-crisis times when
the European deman...

The value of watches costing less than 200 francs (export price)
fell (

3.4%), while the other segments reported sustained growth.
The 500

3,000 francs price category posted the best result with growth
of almost 20% both in value and in the number of pieces.
Most of the 30 main markets prove positive. Hong Kong ( + 15.8%) and
China ( + 18.2%) continued to grow strongly. Japan ( + 21.7%) recorded
an even more substantial advance, although against the background
of a declining medium-term trend. Contrasting with these strong p...

Issues of the luxury watch market
Popularity of luxury products has resulted in the appearance and
expansion of the black market for stolen watches. It should be borne
in mind that each element of the watch mechanism is custom built.
All timepieces have unique identi

cation numbers, which authenticate
product genuineness. These numbers are stored in the manufacturer’s
internal databases. Regretfully, there is no single database for watches
of di

erent manufacturers, while the watch ownership history is not
recorded. Thefts cause signi

cant losses to the watch owners and
insurance companies. Stolen watches enter the market due to absence
of the uni

ed global stop-list and convenient interfaces for the owners.
Another formidable issue facing customers is the availability of fake and
counterfeit products. The quality of fakes improves gradually, making
them very similar to the originals. Being in high demand, Swiss-made <...

ChronoBase is a unified market ecosystem
ChronoBase is a uni

ed ecosystem for luxury watch owners, dealers and
manufacturers. We are creating a truly global ecosystem to store
the watch pro

les, with the current status (stolen, lost, or any other
events), as well as their provenance and service history. ChronoBase will
become a reliable and easily accessible decentralized database with
the information on thousands of luxury watches, which are registered
by manufacturers and owners. The entire lifecycle of a timepiece— from
manufacturing to end user — will be recorded in blockchain, enabling
value retention and a secure marketplace.
Marketplace will become the core of the ecosystem, where watch owners
will be able to retain their collection and o

er any items for sale. Digital
certi

cates, issued by ChronoBase, will protect customers from fakes and
will assist in keeping track of the watch provenance. In addition, an...

ChronoBase — Your luxury watch secured by blockchain
ChronoBase: let's synchronize!
Blockchain is a modern buzz word, yet the underlying technology may
o

er new opportunities and improve the existing processes. Everything that
is not possible to achieve in a centralized database can now exist
in a decentralized and secure form. The key about blockchain is the trust.
When integrity and information safety and long term retention
are of paramount importance, blockchain technology is a perfect

t.
Deep insight into the blockchain technology allows the project team
to analyse various markets, where the issue of data safety and retention
are nowadays acute and persistent. The luxury watch market is the one

where this issue really manifests itself.

Analysis of competing services and projects
Currently, there are no watch related projects or o

ers, which can
prevent all possible risks and safeguard information authenticity. There is
a number of large marketplaces handling watch trade. There are also
local databases of stolen watches. These are practically all options
available. Such projects are summarised in the table below.
