Introducing Tzoumy Genève Watches

Tzoumy Genève is a new Swiss watch brand founded by independent watchmaker Yvan Monnet.

A few years back, Monnet introduced the world’s first pentagonal shaped mechanical watch under his eponymous label. Now he wants to offer his emblematic watches to a wide range of customers. So he has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the Tzoumy Genève brand.

Yvan Monnet is the pioneer of the pentagonal shape wristwatch. He is also the founder of Yvan Monnet Genève, a luxury brand that embodies, in the spirit of the cabinotier, his expertise in finishings and care for details. The new Tzoumy Genève Swiss made automatic watches boast the distinctive pentagonal design, but with a lesser price.

His new brand is inspired by the Swiss village of La Tzoumaz, a place close to the environment, to his childhood roots and to the native Swiss dialects.
