The story of Avantist is the story of contemporary watchmaking, of a disruptive new way to champion mechanical excellence in the smartwatch era. Established in 2015, Avantist is a young and agile watch brand that takes a dynamic new approach to an age old product. Founded by Keeran Janin as a collaboration between leading Swiss watch design houses and movement ateliers, Avantist watches are a tribute to the legacies of phenomenal men and women from sporting champions and movie idols to world leaders and business icons – the greatest achievers of our generation. Headquartered in Singapore, they stay connected to the world’s most adventurous and sophisticated watch collectors.
Manufactured in Switzerland, they retain the quality of unparalleled Swiss watchmaking expertise. This allows them to operate in ways that are unlike any other brand. Avantist watches are always made in extremely limited quantities to guarantee exclusivity because their goal is to provide their customers with a horological experience that is deeply and personally meaningful to them.
