Watchlock®: cutting-edge security for precious timepieces
Franco-Swiss watchmaker Orkos has developed an innovative solution to theft, loss, and unauthorized use of luxury watches. Watchlock® is the world’s first patented bracelet clasp with an easy-to-use micro-locking system that keeps fine watches secure; protecting a legacy that can be passed down through generations.
A personal mission
Orkos founder and CEO Sébastien Buonomo came up with the idea, driven by the desire to preserve the connection between himself and a loved one embodied by his own timepiece that holds irreplaceable sentimental value. Buonomo’s vision caught the attention of engineer and prestige watchmaker Bruno Herbet, who joined the team as technical director. Together, Buonomo and Herbet are working to meet the needs of a clientele that wants the freedom to wear their watches worry free during all of life’s many adventures.
Outstanding technology and design
The Watchlock® system is 100% Swiss made in Geneva from 316L stainless steel and composed of a folding bracelet clasp and accompanying Smart and Safe key ring to easily lock and unlock the mechanism. Each clasp is assembled with care and precision and laboratory checked in a rigorous verification process overseen by Boucledor SA craftspeople—leaders in the manufacturing of premier watch clasps.
Watchlock® clasps are designed to integrate seamlessly with most watch bands. They are available in four finishes and come in a case along with everything necessary for the watch owner or their preferred watchmaker to install the clasp with ease.
Available at select Watchlock® distributors
