Why do you decide to make watches?
Both of us are watch enthusiasts and really have high standards when it comes to it. After doing some research we realized that almost every watch on the market that costs less than €1000 gets manufactured very cheaply in china and offer very poor quality.
At the same time animal leather is one of the most unethical und unsustainable materials out there. Yet it is the most common material used for straps.
So it was upon us to change those to things. At the same time we did not want to compromise on style and created a unique look for our watches.
