The origins of the Watchlock® project
Born to protect your watch
I am a Sébastien Buonomo the founder of the Orkos brand.
The origin of the Watchlock concept® was born from a powerful will to protect a timepiece of inestimable sentimental value.
I wanted to take advantage of this watch every day to keep this powerful link with my loved one, but also to absolutely keep it, so that one day I could pass it on to my children. Only, nothing existed at that time on the watch accessory market to protect our watches from accidental loss or theft.
With a friend, an engineer in precision mechanics, also passionate about watches, we set out to find the most discreet, reliable and integrable micro-locking system ever made.
After weeks of reflection, we managed to find the ideal compromise in order to integrate it in a restricted volume, while giving whole satisfaction in term of resistance, ergonomics and elegance.
The concept was the subject of several international patents, and the project was awarded a French Tech Innovation grant and a grant from the INPI. Watchlock® then successfully passed the mandatory prototyping and testing stages.
Seduced by the Watchlock® project, a renowned partner joined us in the adventure. It is Bruno Herbet, Engineer in watchmaking micro-mechanics and watchmaker in the Vallée de Joux, he benefits from a solid experience in prestigious houses such as Jaeger-LeCoultre or Vacheron Constantin. Bruno Herbet is now technical director for Orkos.
The Watchlock® project is an integral part of the Orkos adventure
Orkos wishes to protect lovers of fine watches, not only through the Watchlock® system, the very first micro-locking system for prestige clasps, but also through several technological accessories currently being designed.
This is an adventure in the truest sense of the word because this sector is completely new. Apart from Orkos, no other company has yet taken the gamble of entering the watch security sector, despite the numerous needs.
Indeed Orkos has several vocations:
- Allow you to exceed your limits by using your watch in extreme conditions and avoid accidental loss.
- Make it possible to restrict the use of your watch to yourself.
- Allow you to wear it in all your day or night escapades, even those that were previously a source of anxiety or risk.
Like all adventures, Orkos' is unique and surprising and the experience of increased freedom it provides is no exception to the rule!
