About Us


“Time is short, make it beautiful”  

The DRC can proudly celebrate the birth of its first watch company which celebrates the rising of the industrial revolution in Africa.

Coming from an architectural background, the young Congolese architect; Michelange KATENDE found himself trapped into the watch making culture. Receiving a valuable watch from his father in 2008, he found himself discovering the secrets of watch making when replacing the aged leather strap.
