About this project
klokers is a premium fashion watch & accessory brand enabling customizable style to match life's everyday moments.
Much more than just watches, klokers timepieces are Machines to Travel through Time.
Two models now available
Create your own style
Both klokers timepiece and bracelet are stand-alone fashion interchangeable accessories.
Express your uniqueness and wear your KLOK-01, KLOK-02, or both as you want: as a watch on your wrist or as a pocket watch. Or invent your own style thanks to the klokers accessory set: on your notebook, on your desk, in your bag, etc.
How does it work?
klokers timepieces clip on and off a patented docking Key on the bracelet, allowing for quick and easy interchangeability:
change either the watch (KLOK-01 or KLOK-02), or the bracelet, or both, to suit your mood and style.
The bracelet (KLOK-00) is also designed to be worn by itself.

Who is klokers for?
You want to be different while embracing diversity? And steer clear from the mass-market homogeneity?
klokers creations are designed for creative, free-thinking men and women who want to express their individuality.
KLOK-01 and KLOK-02 are much more than an original concept. They are also two innovative timepieces in terms of design and technology.
Time is an evocation of various aspects: moments of life, history, movement. klokers is all that.
Each klokers timepiece is inspired by an iconic object from the past to create a bridge allowing us to travel from the past, to the present and future. Our transitive design creates Machines to Travel through Time.
Have you ever used the slide rule?
KLOK-01 recalls the iconic design of the slide rule, which is embedded in our collective unconsciousness.
The slide rule is a mechanical analog computer comprising three scales, one of which slides between the other two. In a similar way, the dial of KLOK-01 is composed of three circular discs sliding past each other at different speeds.
A new way to display time
klokers reinvents the animation of time, offering completely new ways to display it.
There are no hands that rotate, but the whole dial itself. The KLOK-01 uses three rotating concentric rings to display the time along a vertical line. The rings − one each for hours, minutes, and seconds − rotate at different speeds counterclockwise for maximum legibility.
An integrated magnifying lens in the crystal ensures high legibility when reading the time:
To develop klokers concept and design, we had to innovate and integrate new technologies.
The patented klokers Key
We wanted to create these adaptable and interchangeable watches that you could change anytime and anywhere you want, to suit your mood and style. The patented klokers Key allows you to interchange your watch and bracelets.
The assembly architecture
Watches have been assembled according to the same method for centuries.
To allow Swiss Made affordable prices, klokers saw things differently and changed the configuration of assembly.
From the industrial point of view, this is much simpler to assemble and allows keeping high quality while reducing assembly costs, i.e the final consumer price.
Cutting-edge materials: KLOK-01 & KLOK-02
The case is made from a composite metal polymer, offering high strength and low weight, ensuring that the timepiece fits comfortably on wrist of all sizes. The bracelet is made from genuine leather and the pin buckle is stainless steel. The klokers Key is in brushed, hypoallergenic-treated, 316L stainless steel.
The future of klokers: micro-motors
klokers movements use the latest generation of high-precision micro-motors in combination with the accuracy of quartz oscillators to create a new generation of innovative time displays.

Risks and challenges
We are beginners on Kickstarter, but have a decade of experience in the watch industry! We are aware our project is complex and that there are always unforeseen issues, but we have anticipated and planned for potential risks and have built a rock-solid production and delivery plan.
Firstly, our production is quite advanced and you can be very confident about our capacity to provide high-quality products on time. The photos of KLOK-01 shown in this page are prototypes and the final product will be even better.
Secondly, we have very skillful and professional suppliers and do not anticipate delays to our timeline. However, if by chance anything unexpected happens, we promise to keep you informed, both during the campaign and afterwards.
Finally, concerning the relationships between the members of the team: we all get on really well and we really like to work together everyday. So no need to worry about the team disbanding. Even if all of us are not sure to bear Nicolas’ jokes for a long time to come… :-)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
