New at SWELL: Komono Watches

WIZARD_PRINT_SERIES-BORA_BORA
Komono Watches deliver classic design, that’s far from Komon.
New at SWELL, the sleek, utilitarian-styled watches offer up subtle details, think Aloha prints or an oversized face, that set the timepieces apart from the over-the-top and the mass-produced. The SWELL buyers are working ‘roud-the-clock to bring you a curated selection of fresh, uncommon goods…and we’re pretty sure they nailed it with this one. High (camo-clad) five!

About the brand:
“It was June 2009 when we launched Komono in Antwerp, Belgium. Komono provides a unique combination of premium brand value with affordable but high quality product and the ability to keep our finger firmly pressed on the pulse of our times has attracted a growing global fan base: the Komonists. We have been going strong in Europe, Asia and Australia for a few years now and could not be more excited to bring our products to the US.”
-Raf Maes KOMONO Founder
