To distill the best of an era and transform it into a timeless icon is an infinite and delicate task. With designs that are created in the United States by a young and highly talented team of professional American Watch Makers, they evoke emotions that are everlasting. From the first pencil sketch to the finished watch, the objective is always to find the perfect balance between classic time and modernity. Only what is deemed worthy will bear the Swisstek signature, thus the outcome is a "timeless appeal.
Officially launched in 1996, Swisstek has led the field in modern Swiss watch manufacturing. It has emerged as an international luxury Swiss-made watch brand synonymous with bold designs that incorporate rare and unique elements designed not only for the discerning Americans but also for the global elites.
Developing the Swisstek brand at a time when heritage Swiss watch making was being outsourced to large volume-based manufacturing practices, Swisstek is one of the few companies to work exclusively with traditional Swiss watchmakers for inspiration, influences, and as a source for quality components for Swisstek’s designs and collections. With the concept and design of each timepiece developed in the United States, and portions of modification manufacturing taking place in the U.S. as well, the company’s Swiss counterparts remain involved providing advice and input on every process.
The very first step in the creation of a reliable, high performance, exclusive and original watch lies in imagination, research, and development. A team of qualified designers, engineers and technicians create new and unique concepts with functionalities that enhance reliability and perfection in manufacturing technologies for components. They create new watch cases; bracelets, clasps based on the design sketches. At all steps, the tasks of finishing and assembling as well as the quality requirements of the Swisstek Seal are taken into consideration. Superior quality in production not only calls for the finest tools and skills, but also for a blend of latest-generation technology combined with a long-term experience in traditional craftsmanship.
The components are made using cutting-edge technologies, decorated and hand-finished, in compliance with the age-old Swiss and American watch making traditions.
Each Swisstek watch is created as a limited edition masterpiece and is crafted from the highest quality materials powered by Swiss-made movements. From high-performance tungsten to hardened Finnish stainless steel they incorporate unique elements not found in average watch collections. Swisstek creates bold and distinctive designs with natural colored diamonds, sapphires, rubies, and emeralds. Natural diamonds are particularly rare as the natural process to create these one-of-kind red, pink, canary, and chocolate stones are the work of nature and the professionals at Swisstek spend considerable time meticulously sorting and assessing each stone to deem it perfect for a Swisstek limited edition timepiece.
Swisstek recaptures the essence of the classic timepiece with their latest addition to the Slim-TEK series of limited edition watches. The simplicity in the design pays homage to minimalistic movement of the 1940s with a retro flair. The new addition to the Slim-Tek family of timepieces takes on an avante-grade direction in designing watches for a new, self-confident, dynamic generation that covets timeless masterpieces and classic detailing. This timeless masterpiece is created with a two hand Swiss made precision movement. Utmost attention is placed on the details of the design to offer exceptional clarity and legibility to the wearer. The retro miniature clock hands combine with the raised diamond cut markers under the scratch resistant sapphire crystal to offer a watch that is as comfortable accompanying a tuxedo as it is on the boardwalk. The textured dial offers clear and easy reading of time while the large ultra slim 6mm thick case has diameter is fitted with a fine hand-crafted crocodile leather strap. The traditionalist concept combines the almost architectural use of forms with the clarity of polished steel and genuine crocodile leather. The thin square case gracefully exudes eternal luxury and minimalist styling for the modern purist. Ageless in its design, these limited edition pieces are sleek and elegant for today's more discerning clientele. The exclusive Swisstek Slim-TEK watches are crafted in Switzerland in extremely small quantities and are sold as limited edition works of art.
