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.
