KLYNT Genève – Making Swiss Watches creative again

Klynt watches are currently live on Kickstarter, and are well worth checking out with a starting price of CHF990

KLYNT was born in the cradle of fine watchmaking, Geneva. In Switzerland, surrounded by historical manufactures and their best artisans, they could have revived a past brand or manufactured a homage watch. Yet KLYNT is all but conformist. They are a pioneer, bringing their incredible know-how in a contemporary universe to express their passion for creativity.

I caught up to the owner Bruno to ask him about the brand..

KLYNT launched a Kickstarter project that is much different from all other microbrands: when most brands look for Asian-made affordable ( and sometimes qualitative) movements & watches, KLYNT takes the bet to perpetuate a long tradition that started, in Geneva.

For us Geneva is not only a Swiss Made stamp on our watches, it’s our roots, our passion  and where our best artisans assemble each watch we produce. Every detail of this first collection has been carefully studied and refined to reach this incredible value proposition: creative design, technicity and astonishing finishing level, only observed in Haute Horlogerie watches, retailing far above CHF 5’000 .

Only thanks to our modern direct distribution, we can offer ELEGANCE CONTEMPORAINE timepieces at an accessible pricepoint, so that more people can get access to this incredible know-how and quality that only true Swiss watches can offer.
