The simple M O S KI T O Mount
The simple M O S KI T O Mount

M O S KI T O is a watch like you have never seen before. As a chronograph, it convinces with its classic design, long battery life and smart notifications: You will never miss another call, message, or e-mail again. M O S KI T O informs you immediately – a glance on the dial is all that is needed. The charging function also means that you will never have to change batteries again.

In addition to its function as a chronograph, M O S KI T O is an analogue tachometer that tells you everything you need to know: your current speed, the distance travelled, and your average speed. But that’s not all: Would you like to know if you have set a new personal best on a specific section of the route? Your M O S KI T O tells you in real time in the challenge mode.

After your ride you can easily upload your data to Strava or Garmin Connect. 

It was clear to us right from the start that we wanted to work with an exceptional Swiss watchmaker. This is why we started a close cooperation with a well-known watch manufacturer from the Swiss mountains already in the early stages of development. The company Soprod is known for innovative products and high precision in the production of watch movements. In the development of the hands, which have to be able to withstand high impacts, we cooperated with a manufacturer from the watchmaking town Grenchen. We also relied on a local partner in the assembly stage. M O S KI T O is entirely handmade by a manufacturer in the south of Switzerland.

 

 
 

The design of the M O S KI T O dial follows that of an analog speedometer. It convinces with its intuitive concept, while simultaneously providing the full scope of smart notifications. Taking the elongated proportions of a classic in the world of graphic design – the DIN fonts – as a starting point, the combination of a colored arrow and neutral hands was the logical implementation.

The design of M O S KI T O is reminiscent of a classic chronograph, which makes it a stylish companion in your everyday life. The watch case is reduced to simple geometrical shapes and seamlessly merges into the concept.

In order for M O S KI T O to display the smart notifications and the speed functions, the watch needs to be connected via Bluetooth with a smartphone. Additionally, a download of the M O S KI T O app is required (for iOS and Android, free of charge).

"As a goaltender it all comes down to precision and timing. Attributes that I not only live on but also off the ice. No wonder that all my watches are Swiss made. Now I can combine my interest in stylish gadgets with my passion for bicycles. That's why I'm joining forces to help bringing M O S KI T O to life."
Jonas Hiller, bike enthusiast and ice hockey pro.

Warranty and service: To ensure that you will be provided with the appropriate service after the purchase of your M O S KI T O, we are already in talks with potential service partners in various countries and cities. The inner workings of the watch are designed in a manner that allows the battery and the individual motors or hands to be replaced by a regular watchmaker. We deliver the spare parts and the instruction in a quick and uncomplicated way.

 

Risks and challenges

Delivery time: In manufacturing, there is always a risk that suppliers do not fulfill orders on time. We are working with manufacturers that are professional and organized. We are working closely with them to make sure production goes smoothly. In any case, we will do what we can to deliver before the expected delivery dates!

Duty/VAT charges: If you live outside of Switzerland, you will be responsible for any applicable duty/VAT charges.
Customs: Some countries are known for being very slow with customs, and you probably know if you live in one. We're sorry that we can't put a magic stamp on our packages to help them get through faster.

We'll update you frequently about our progress, and if there are any blips along the way, we'll let you know!
