The company's founding principles are a combination of the unconventional with technical prowess. Each new timepiece is not simply the modification of an existing aesthetic model, but is completely designed from scratch. This perpetual calling into question leads to the creation of audacious timepieces that are not afraid to surprise.


Hysek can be described as both a watchmaking designer and a designer watchmaker: since it was founded in 1996, it has developed complex movements in close association with a particularly sophisticated aesthetic appearance. Through its primary vocation of design, Hysek imparts a refined, exclusive, independent spirit to each of its creations.

Hysek entered the watchmaking scene with Kilada: its first line, revealing timepieces that summed up the philosophy that was to guide it henceforth: tight lines, a contemporary design and an approach that marked a breakaway from the codes of traditional watchmaking.

On the back of the success of its first creations, Hysek rapidly commenced operations on all continents. Its watchmaking excellence quickly expanded, too: in 2003, the Kilada was equipped with a tourbillon and in 2005, a Westminster minute repeater, dubbed Symphony, marked the entry of Hysek into fine watchmaking. The same year saw the arrival of the Abyss line, with its highly modern curves embodying the very special care take with the case profiles.

In 2007, Hysek undertook to bring together the different trades necessary for making its timepieces under one roof. From that time on, the brand has been committed to developing Fine Watchmaking calibers, including a tourbillon, a complication it duplicated for the Kilada XX-Ray: for the first time in the world, a watch was fitted with two tourbillon movements.

Even as the first ladies' models were added to the collection, Hysek developed new models at a sustained pace: the Grand Complication Colosso GMT Minute Repeater, the ‘Furtif Mirage'  tourbillon, and the more classical IO line, as well as new automatic Hours, Minutes, Seconds and Chronograph calibers from the manufacture, bearing witness to the firm's creative vitality. These many developments have contributed to Hysek's growth, with the opening of its first stores in Asia in 2010 and 2012.

Manufacture Hysek now designs and produces watches, jewellery, writing implements and accessories. With products distributed in over 50 countries, Hysek can boast an international reputation and exposure.

The firm's foundational principles are atypism and technical prowess. Each new timepiece is not simply the modification of an existing aesthetic model, but is completely designed from scratch. This perpetual calling into question leads to the creation of extremely audacious and contemporary timepieces.

Furthermore, by developing its own mechanical movements with small and grand complications, Manufacture Hysek can afford to combine the technical prowess in which it excels with this aesthetic creativity, reinterpreting it in an innovative manner.



The absolute expression of the Hysek style, the Abyss line will win over a smart casual clientele thanks to its wide range of calibers and materials. With diameters ranging from 38 to 47mm, this round-cased collection with a powerful profile stands out for the quality of its finishes, the perfect integration of the wristband and innovative functions such as the revolving bezel locking system.


A timepiece with an angular design playing on the combination of brushed steel and a faceted sapphire crystal, the Furtif collection comprises different models fitted with manufacture movements such as the chronograph and skeleton tourbillon.


In a round case, the ample forms of this contemporary collection reveal subtle, classical refinement. The flagship watch of this collection, the IO Heure Sautante, features a jumping hour display.


Hysek’s first collection of precious mechanical watches, Kalysta, whose name means “the fairest”, is the fruit of a pure aesthetic vision. Bearing in mind that women are more sensitive to creative touches than to mechanical sophistication, the manufacture has thought first and foremost in terms of shape, brilliance – and emotion.

Beneath its fine apparel, though, Kalysta is powered by an exclusive calibre that redefines refinement and preciousness. The movement, designed and produced wholly in-house, does away with traditional hands, offering instead a whole new way of reading the time.


Kilada, the brand's historic model, features the atypical, minimalist style upon which the Firm's identity is founded. The collection now comprises a series of timepieces boasting a very large number of different functions: chronograph, power reserve, large date display, annual calendar, and a double micro-rotor tourbillon.


With a one-piece design, mounted on the side rather than the back, and turning the gaskets into a design feature, the V-King is an original timepiece – not only from an aesthetic point of view but also in terms of its technical design.


Jorg Hysek - Bold, Innovative, Avant Garde

Jorg Hysek is no stranger to the watch world. Before launching his own brand in 1997 he was a trusted designer for many a great luxury watch company.

Hysek as a brand themselves are known for their avant garde, bold styling. Case construction is innovative and unique, pushing the boundaries of modern case construction with solid offerings in gold and stainless steel. Certain ranges, too, have a variety of dial choices ranging from red accents to black, for customers of all tastes.

Mainly focusing on offerings for men, with lines such as the Kilada, Abyss and Furtif, luxury womens watches are also offered with the Kalysta and Duna series of watches.

Kilada - The Hysek Flagship Piece

The Kilada comes in a variety of styles including a quartz chronograph, an automatic version and an automatic power reserve complication. Certain watches also come in your choice of either stainless steel or yellow gold for those who are after true quality. There are also colour choices for your dial, whether being in black or white, depending on your chosen watch. Available either on a strap or metal bracelet.

Abyss - Luxury For Modern, Active Men

This line up of watches are true luxury with a trusted quality aimed at providing ultimate comfort with functional complications, such as a chronograph, for active men who are after a modern look. The case features swiveling horns which contour to the wrist, providing maximum comfort without compromising on quality.

The Abyss offerings of the brand bring a whole host of options ranging from automatic with retrograde seconds, power reserve, dual time and big date. A range of automatic chronographs are also on offer.

Dial choices for various models of watch are offered in black, white, blue, gold and even red accents. Case materials come in stainless steel and yellow gold, with a price point that can accommodate most budgets in the Swiss watch game. Also offered on a leather strap or metal bracelet.

Furtif - A New Breed

Perhaps the penultimate example of Hysek as a brand would be the Furtif Skeleton Tourbillon. It was 2008 when Jorg Hysek introduced the world to his first range of watches equipped with this complication. The Furtif Skeleton was limited to just 30 pieces, which makes it a dream for both buyer and seller alike, as exclusivity is always sought after amongst the most discerning collectors of Swiss watches.

Not being offered in stainless steel, instead boasting a case made from titanium and gold with a black skeletonized dial. This is truly a remarkable piece that embodies the brands ethos; individualism. Due to the limited nature of the model, a price is not available, you will need to be the lucky buyer and find a trusted seller who is willing to part with such a piece.

Hysek Today

The Hysek brand has grown exponentially from where Jorg Hysek started all those years ago. Not content with shipping watches to buyers all around the world, Hysek have launched dedicated stores in Asia so both buyer and trusted seller can have a more intimate experience and grow their trusted relationship with this Swiss brand, as face to face purchases are always more intimate than receiving a watch via the shipping method. As they grow their seller network worldwide their customer service quality will continue to impress.

At a price point which will satisfy many a consumer Hysek have developed a range of watches that have varying appeal across a range of tastes and ages. Quartz offerings for those who are more price conscious, and elaborate complications for those who require ultimate luxury and price is no object.
