“We combine minimalistic design with Italian craftsmanship, and create timepieces where all components are equally attended with zero compromise.”

The traditional vegetable tanning, handmade stitches of waxed linen thread, patina coating and distressing gives a unique look for each individual strap. The heart of the watch is made in Switzerland. 

“Driven by the modern creative minds of our time, we continue to create, letting every timepiece remind us that good things take time.”
