How it all began

We, that is Roger Zahnd and Florian Kormann, two long-standing friends from Bern and Thun, who founded the Zahnd & Kormann watch brand in 2016.

With the successful launch of ZK No.1 on Kickstarter in 2017 and around 250 watches sold, we took the first step back then.

We started our adventure as complete newcomers in the watch industry and have built up and expanded our know-how step by step. On our way we met many interesting people, made partnerships and friends.

But it was and is by no means always easy as a small watch brand. But we love what we do and do not regret any of the many sleepless nights. On the contrary. We would do it again any time… Just a little bit smarter than before.


Our motivation

In everything we do, we are aware that our time is not forever and that we want to get the most out of every moment. The maximum of passion, quality and dedication to this project and your watch.

This, this here and now is all our time and the opportunity to realise visions, learn new things and take a step forward every day.

Thank you very much for accompanying and supporting us on this way.

Roger and Florian
