was founded by maverick watchmaker Michael Fernandez who started his new venture of creating his own watch in a small garage.
The watches are entirely handmade in Berlin Germany, the work of just one man wanting to hand build a watch for his father’s birthday.
While studying engineering & construction technology he started to build watches in 2011.
His first watch watch model in 2011 the "Bathyal" made of Bronze CuSn8 passed a pressure-test of 280bar.
In 2012 he developed the deepest dive-watch made of Aluminium with a pressure resistance of 300bar. This prototype was also known as C-4 proofed watch, it was tested by some guys in Fort Bragg.
In March 2017 we passed a pressure test up to 1200bar /12000m /39370ft with our Kaventsmann HADAL II Bronze, the deepest Bronze watch ever.
In September 2017 we passed the 2nd pressure test to 1200bar , this time with a watchcase completely made of high strength aluminum, the deepest Aluminum watch ever.
In German, ‘Kaventsmann’ is a term used colloquially to describe hefty objects. It is also used to describe rogue waves, relatively large and spontaneous ocean surface waves that occur far out at sea.
Only a few watches leave the workshop each month.
