Even if he was a very bad student except in Mathematics, where his genius was soon perceived, (he needed eleven years to complete nine years of school) Elmar finally received his Engineering Diploma when he was only 22 years old. At the age of 26 he invented the Swatch with his friend Jacques Müller under Ernst Thomke?s direction and not Hayek?s like the majority of the Swiss population seem to think. The Swatch is an amazing success story not only in Switzerland but in the whole wide world. Five years later, in 1985, Elmar developed the Rock Watch of Tissot, which also immediately became a legend notably because of its particular aesthetic characterized by its rock fabrication. In 1986 Elmar Mock left the ETA group to open his own company called CREAHOLIC SA, which is established in Biel. Elmar remained alone for the first four years, but today his firm is composed of a group of 35 engineers and designers. At present, this prolific inventor has signed more than 120 patent families in many domains: watch-making, packaging, food, medical, automobile, environmental? Yes, Elmar Mock worked (and he is still working) with the famous Tetra Pak, Nestlé, BMW? companies. And more than that, he isn?t ready to leave the creative world, where he is highly respected as a rare pearl: a living genius who you don?t come across very often.
