Here's the first sneak peek

In the small world of independent watch collectors, one name is increasingly catching the spotlight: Rexhep Rexhepi. The talented young watchmaker created Akrivia in 2012. His unique style, his precise technicality, coupled with his outstanding finishing, have earned him the comparison with some of the world's greatest master watchmakers like Philippe Dufour.
