Ever heard of Elysee watches? Probably not. But there is no escaping them now. We have become an official Elysee dealer, which makes us super proud! These Elysee watches look amazing and sell at amazingly sharp prices to boot. And did we mention they are made in Germany?

Elysee’s history reaches back to 1920, with Jacques Beaufort making the first Elysee watch. The name Elysee is registered again in 1960. But the history of the current Elysee watches starts in 2006, with Reiner Seume connecting the brand to former racing driver Graf Berghe von Trips.

Elysee and car sports, a perfect match. With Graf Berghe von Trips and Jochen Mass, the German watch brand has found two faces for its franchise. Graf Berghe von Trips was born into nobility in 1928. At the age of 25, he started racing. In 1957, he rode his first Formula one race and became the first German racer for the Ferrari company. Later he would also start racing for Porsche. On September 10th, 1961 Graf Berghe von Trips perished in a car accident during the Grand Prix of Monza. The racing world lost one of its greatest heroes. He was declared vice world champion posthumously.
