The original design of the creator of the brand remains the same. Just optimized in watch engineering to propose you an affordable price. To rationalize to create an accessible timepiece is our mission and here the Ikepod saga.
Ikepod comes out with temporal objects based on novel engineering and design concepts. A true innovative force in the horology world, Ikepod launches several trends of the forecoming decade (watch sizes, borderline high -end luxury pricing, artisanal limited small series).
In 2008, after many up and downs, and with the watch industry bubble about to burst, Ikepod releases even pricier and more exclusive collections including gold and platinum pieces. In 2012, notwithstanding its extensive global retail presence (Colette, Westime, The Hour Glass), the brand is put to rest but Ikepod remain in the heart and collection of all watch design passionate.
To revive a legend and make it accessible to those who once loved, desired, and coveted it. And let a brand new generation of admirers discover it.
The brand is purchased by a group of passionate watch lovers.
Cost-optimization research begins. Less and more.
Emmanuel Gueit, a famous Swiss design superstar, begins work on the new Ikepod dials. Inspired by the history, but still inherently a watch designer’s design, Ikepods are now accessible to both watch aficionados and geeks.
