Ikepod Watches

Marc NewsonIkepod companyIkepod was founded in 1994. It got wide international recognition thanks to the alliance of Marc Newson, a famous Australian designer, and Oliver Ike, a Swiss businessman. The name “Ikepod” descended from the “Ike” last name and Newson's design style, called “Pod”.
 All Ikepod watch brand's models are produced in limited edition series in Switzerland. Every collection has chronographs in it.

The watch's case can be opened only from the top with a help of a specific instrument and has a small off-center aperture on the back side. The aperture and the crystal on the case back are sapphire. The strap's fixation to the case is distinctive for its originality. The watch is water resistant up to 50 metres deep.
