FAQ'S FROM THE VIEW OF A CONSUMER
Why Does it say Hand Made on your watches, are your watches really Swiss Made?
All our watches meet and greatly exceed the Swiss government's designation of watches needing to be 60% to bare the marking Swiss Made. Our K1 movement is 98.26% Swiss, with only two parts coming from Germany as there are no options for their production in Switzerland. Additionally, a watch with a movement that is not Swiss Made cannot apply for Swiss chronometer certification and both our K1 and K-TOU movements reach this level, a level that only 3% of the Swiss watches made can reach. We are therefore more Swiss than the majority of the brands on the market, however our precious timepieces take an incredible amount of hand work by a team from all corners of the globe and this is why we have Hand Made on our dial and Swiss Made on the movement. Swiss Made is easy, however premium Hand Made watches are challenging.
