Formex Watches

"Formex Swiss Watches, established in 1999, is an independent family-owned watch manufacturer based in Biel/Bienne - known as the cradle of Swiss watchmaking. With our roots in high-end watch manufacturing, we develop and produce watches that meet the highest quality standards in the industry, and equip them with unique engineered features to add more functionality and comfort. Through an innovative distribution model, Formex offers an affordable luxury watchmaking experience for those who appreciate fine timepieces and exceptional craftsmanship. But what’s our story? The Formex history goes back 20 years when two Swiss brothers, both watchmakers and enthusiasts alike, wanted to combine their passion for watches with their love for motorsports. "Formex = forme extrème, French for ‘extreme shape’" Inspired by the engineering and mechanics of high performance racing cars and bikes, the two brothers developed the brand’s signature patented Case Suspension System. This cushion-like system protects the watch’s movement and considerably adds to the comfort on the wrist, while giving every Formex a very distinctive, robust and sporty look. All our watches are designed, developed and assembled in-house at our headquarters in Biel-Bienne, Switzerland and meet the current, more strict Swiss Made requirement, which entered into force on January 2017. Every single piece undergoes a variety of quality and functionality controls, before making it to your wrist."
