“Hysek has an architectural vision of the watch; its philosophy is to create very technical objects which seduce connoisseurs and people eager to differentiate themselves”
Launched in 1997, HYSEK brand has imposed its disruptive vision within the watch industry as well as its atypical style which heckles and dares the difference.
Independent and unconventional, Hysek has gained a significant and prestigious position on the high end of luxury timepieces. Hysek is synonym of creativity, technicality, quality, exclusiveness. Its contemporary style reveals minimalist and pure lines. HYSEK timepieces are the result of the harmony of shapes and volumes combined to an extreme search of the detail which convey a very strong identity. The elements proper to Hysek concept are the refined and elaborated watch profiles, the multi-layered dials displaying the numbers 1-5-7-11, the personalised hand-engraved movements decoration, the perfect integration of the bracelet into the watch case for an incomparable wearing comfort as well as the fold-over buckles, exclusive design to Hysek in a perfect continuity to the case. The brand has expanded very quickly and in the purpose of establishing its watch making legitimacy, Hysek created its own manufacture in 2007, which placed the company as a major actor of the watch industry. Today, the brand creates and manufactures watches, jewellery, writing instruments and accessories.
By developing its own mechanical movements featuring both minor and grande complications within its Manufacture based in Switzerland, Hysek embodies the subtle alliance between bold design and high-end watch-making know-how. Indeed, the principal advantage of industrial independence is the ability to enrich designers’ graphic palette and liberate them from any constraints imposed by generic movements with fixed parameters. As a result, this approach allows for the creation of Hysek timepieces characterized by their total exclusivity and contemporary style, which will seduce those discerning individuals eager to express their passions by emphasizing their originality. By combining visual strength and harmonious lines, Hysek’s design plays with recurring graphic themes. Each element that constitutes a Hysek timepiece, from the cases inspired by grand works of architecture, to the dials displaying the numbers 1-5-7-11, the personalised hand-engraved movements decoration to their original folding buckles, are visual features that have rooted Hysek in the modern world.
