A New Vision Bringing Together Mechanical Watchmaking, Timeless Design and Advanced Technology
The most prestigious mechanical watches come from Switzerland. The smartest ones don’t. And no one has dared to combine the two into something that is both classic and clever – until now.
Based in Zürich, ARAMEDES was created to bring the subtle magic of traditional timepieces into the digital age. The founders have taken on the challenge of creating a thoroughly modern and innovative watch brand, bringing together their complementary skills, shared values and deep experience of both the watch industry and technology.
Taking all the things they love about Swiss watchmaking and advanced technology, they have combined them in an entirely new way – mechanical movements, high tech, and classic design, all intelligently integrated.
At the core of ARAMEDES lies the founders’ conviction that the owner of the watch – the wearer and user – should be at the heart of every idea. Aramedes has successfully translated this principle into classic design, Swiss quality and technical innovation with real-world utility. They do not believe in tech just for the sake of tech; as form follows function, technology follows purpose.
At Dubai Watch Week, ARAMEDES Co-Founder & Chief Emotion Officer (CEO), Tom Morf introduces the brand to the world, along with its first two collections: ZÜRICH, which features three classical mechanisms, and MECCA, their hero product – a line of absolutely innovative timepieces that incorporate functions that support Muslims in observing the key practices of their religion.
ARAMEDES ZÜRICH COLLECTION
The same design codes are shared by the Zürich Collection, which comprises three classical mechanisms:
- Classictimer Chronograph presents a classical bicompax display operated by twin pushers, with central chronograph seconds, a chronograph minutes register at 3 o’clock and running seconds at 9 o’clock. Four dial colours in stainless steel cases are complemented by a bronze-cased variation with a silver-and-blue dial.
- Classictimer Small Second presenting one of the most classical displays in watchmaking, the hours and minutes indication is complemented by a running seconds sub-dial at 6 o’clock. Housed in a stainless steel case, it is offered in three colour variations: silver, fumé and anthracite.
- Classictimer Tourbillon Automatic features a flying tourbillon and an automatic movement with a 22-carat gold winding rotor. The restrained and timeless elegance of the silver dial is a perfect foil for the tourbillon, which is set in an aperture at 6 o’clock.
“We started ARAMEDES to bring the subtle magic of classic timepieces into the digital age,” says Tom Morf. “We’re proud to present Aramedes to the world at Dubai Watch Week 2021.”
