Combines innovative technology with perfect design - LOTUS
Miguel Rodriguez, the founder of LOTUS, demonstrated his daring, but also his pronounced economic thinking: in 1968 he went to Switzerland with hardly any money in his pocket and without mastering the language. After a few years he returned to his home country Spain, where fate took its course. A friend told him that if he had lived for so long in a country known for its watches, he must also have such a watch. In short: Rodriguez drove to Geneva, went to a watch shop, picked out a model and traded the seller down from 150 to 80 francs. Back in Barcelona, a banker liked the watch so much that he bought it from Rodriguez for 150 pesetas and asked him to get more of the Swiss watches, because at that time it was difficult to get quartz watches in Barcelona. In the weeks that followed, Rodriguez travelled to Geneva several times and earned more than a year's salary from the banker's love of watches. What was much more important, however, was the insights he gained: he had business sense. More importantly, it is not the appearance that determines the price, but only the quality. That is why LOTUS wristwatches still impress today with their clear design, highest precision and a pleasant wearing comfort - and all this at a fair price. With the money he had earned from the watches for the banker, he opened a shop and the Swiss jeweller from whom he had bought the quartz watches became his partner. In 1980, the watch seller became the founder of the LOTUS. In 1984 Rodriguez took over the traditional Festina brand and over the years acquired Jaguar, Candino, Calypso and Perrelet. On THE JEWELLER you will find numerous ladies' and mens' watches from LOTUS, which impress with their high-quality workmanship, their functionality and their varied designs. For more than 35 years LOTUS has been producing urban and trendy watches, which also convince with their "inner" values: Often the watches made of high-quality materials have practical functions and in the quartz movements you can feel the Swiss watchmaking art - reliable, durable and precise. It is no coincidence that LOTUS is one of the top-selling watch brands in Spain and is now also exported to other countries. And with great success, because they are also extremely popular outside Spain.

Sporty men's watches from LOTUS
The men's watches from LOTUS are also divided into different collections. As with watches for women, the REVIVAL and URBAN CLASSIC collection is also available for men. In addition, there is the MINIMALIST, which meets the spirit of the times with simple designs and a clear language of form. The striking models of the LOTUS R collection are extremely robust and place functionality in the foreground without compromising on refined design. The watches and chronographs in the SMART CASUAL collection offer stylish purism. The CHRONOs clearly show what they are made of: practical displays with a stopwatch function and a lively design. Motor sport fans and all lovers of sporty men's watches watch out! LOTUS has dynamic special editions that will make your heart beat faster. Lotus has been closely associated with motorcycling for many years. First as main sponsor of Team Fortuna-Honda-Lotus in the 250cc class, then as sponsor of world champion Jorge Lorenzo. Since 2012 Marc Márquez, today multiple MotoGP World Champion, has been sponsored by LOTUS. In the same year he won the title in the Moto2 class, whereupon LOTUS launched the Marc Márquez collection. His strengths during a race include the joy of dueling and rapid speed. This makes him a worthy namesake of LOTUS racing watches. The designers of the popular brand know their way around sporty watches and have surpassed themselves with this exclusive collection. The watches and chronographs impress with their richness of detail and functionality: a tachymeter scale, a date display and a stopwatch function are located on the dials of the sports chronographs. On all models the number 93, the personal start number and the year of birth of Marc Márquez, is inserted as design element. Since 2015, Alex Márquez, Moto3 2014 World Champion and brother of Marc, has also been a representative of the LOTUS brand.
