Our Story

A small introduction

Despite having multiple devices showing the accurate time, wearing a wristwatch is still en vogue.
It is status symbol, it reflects a lifestyle, it is for women and men alike an exclusive accessory.
Watch customisation is a way of assembling something genuinely unique, a distinguished
reflection of its wearer giving indications on who you are as an individual.
With a gentle push of your fingertips a HK timepiece reveals to be as extravagant or discreet,
as colourful or subtle as it suits your wishes. In essence, there remains no limitation only
countless possible combinations true to our motto #DesignYourTime. A watch is a very personal
item which goes far beyond the aspect of simply telling the time. It is a companion,
a piece of art, a piece of history and heritage, as well as the fundamental base for many lovely stories
and memories through time. The philosophy and concept behind HK Watches ensures to be truly unique –
which further should be noticed and reflected upon the consumer. #DesignYourTime – It’s fun, it’s unique, it’s an HK.
