Akrivia - watches & reviews
AkriviA is the young creator of novel haute horlogerie timepieces based in the heart of the famed watchmaking capital Geneva. The core of their philosophy is to present knowledgeable lovers of pure mechanical forms with the finest traditions of haute horology combined with novel and fresh forms, which fulfill the expectations of 21st century design with contemporary aesthetics. Their present creation, the Tourbillon monopusher chronograph 5N, is a reinterpretation of a classical monopusher chronograph design combined with a tourbillon escapement enclosed within a sleek and highly detailed case design. It marks their first exercise in complex watchmaking that are to be followed by a series of new concepts in mechanical timekeeping and display.
Rexhep Rexhepi is the master watchmaker behind the ambitious goals of AkriviA. It was during his apprenticeship at Patek Philippe at the age of 14 that he first felt an intense desire to express a personal philosophy of watchmaking with an approach that would push the boundaries of execution and mechanism to new levels. A decade of experiences after that daydream about the future would see AkriviA become a reality. AkriviA’s goals are simple: uniting the heritage of the Geneva watchmaking traditions with a contemporary approach that interprets timekeeping for the 21st century.
