A.Manzoni & Fils is a Swiss watch brand. With its origins dating back to 1888, this historic company had its mechanical watch movement factory in Lugano, Switzerland. The iconic Manzoni Fils manufacture closed its operations in 1978.
In 2010, Manufacture A.Manzoni & Fils SA was established by Oliver Ike (co-founder of IKEPOD) to revitalize the brand. He was the CEO of IKEPOD from 1998 to 2003, before selling the company to a luxury investment fund.
In 2010, in partnership with Finland based designer Ilkka Suppanen, he began developing a new watch model for the A.Manzoni & Fils brand. In 2013, the company introduced its debut watch, the Canopus Weekplanner.
To create a truly authentic product that is 100% Swiss made, the brand has collaborated with the best manufactures in Switzerland. For example, A.Manzoni & Fils sources movements from reputed Swiss companies like Dubois Dépraz SA and Soprod SA. Likewise, the watch cases are made by RD Manufacture SA, metal bracelets by Brogioli SA, leather straps by Camille Fournet and buckles by Erbas SA.
The notable timepieces from the revived A.Manzoni & Fils brand are Canopus Automatic Chronograph, Canopus Weekplaner and the Alshain Table Clock.
