Introducing – Belier Watches by Kim Djapri, a new AHCI candidate (even Voutilainen and Dufour say he’s good…)
Watch brands born and die everyday. Even when it comes to proper high-end watches, we see many new brands coming on the market – and unfortunately some pass away as fast as they came in. However, when the name of the AHCI (Académie Horlogère des Créateurs Indépendants) is mentioned, the story gets a lot more different. As a candidate, your name goes next to some of the greatest actual watchmakers: Journe, Baumgartner (Urwerk), Dufour, Voutilainen, Halter… And these members are your godfathers, some guarantors that your watches are done in the proper Haute Horlogerie way. This year, the AHCI has a new candidate, Kim Djapri, which came with a new brand – Belier Watches – and his first watch – the Reverse. And because Voutilainen and Dufour say he’s good, it deserve some of our attention.
