klok-2-large

Klokers, a French start-up business, is looking for partners in the UK for its innovative push button time travel watches.

The company is based in Annecy-Le-Vieux, only 30 miles South of Geneva, and aims to shake up the Swiss watchmaking industry with its unique approach to world timer watches.

Like many brands today, Klokers started life on crowdfunding site Kickstarter in 2015, raising €605,898, enough to put two models into production : the Klok 1 and the Klok 2.

The Klok 2 is designed to display the time in any time zone around the world.

The watch is designed into two halves, with the top half showing a large arc of retrograde minutes and seconds sweeping across the face.

The hour is displayed in a circular aperture in the bottom half of the dial next to a window showing 24 cities around the world; one for each time zone.

A pusher at 4 o’clock advances the city and hour one at a time.

The 43mm watch, which sells in Europe for €865 (£750) uses a Swiss Made Soprod SOP 813 mechatronic movement with displays driven by high-efficiency/low power consumption.
