Technomarine watches have been launched relatively recently. The company appeared in France in 1997 and it presented a single chronograph watch – the TechnoMarine Raft. The watch was designed by Franck Dubarry. The Raft became excessively successful and TechnoMarine relocated its headquarters to Los Angeles. Shortly after, Technomarine presented its first collection of diving watches. The biggest company breakthrough is called TechnoDiamond – the first original diamond chronograph that came with interchangeable bands and a revolving bezel. This revolutionary timepiece gained recognition immediately. TechnoMarine expanded its line and diversified its products to appeal to a wider audience. In 2001, it started making lifestyle watches that were less sporty and more elegant.
