I have owned a K-05 Oldtimer for a few weeks now and I am fully satisfied with its quality, as well as its very low price when you see the work done on it and the multiple quality controls with certificates provided with the watch. The customer service is just exceptional, available on social networks, email, phone, they bend over backwards to satisfy their customers... Thanks again for this k-05, look forward to the rest of your projects!!!

The K-03 Albatros is a superb watch, both in terms of design and watchmaking quality. A GMT/UTC with a proven Swiss movement at a price never seen before. In addition, the direct contact with the Akrone team makes the difference. We call you directly to find out if we can send you the watch.

Quality French creations. You can feel the passion of these creators. The only limit are these models with too limited draws. It is necessary to follow the day to day their news to hope for a watch. And there's a lot of people who miss these creations because we don't spend enough time on the net.

I started to follow what this little watch brand made in France was doing about two or three years ago. Out of curiosity for this cheeky choice facing the Swiss indetrônable at first, then by interest in seeing the projects succeed,... and those in the boxes for the future. the adventure of the "Metiers d'arts" and the Viper have finished convincing me to support these Nantais mobblons. And support someone by making a gift made in France in series limitee,.... There is less pleasant I confess 😆. In short, I discovered (and had the pleasure to meet at the MIF salon in Paris) a team of passionate, French artisans with a unique know-how,... and great professionals very friendly and accessible. I cracked for the K04 Metiers d'art, and the K-AF85. What is really great is that once the orders are placed, they remain very available to answer all your questions and keep you informed every day at the slightest couac. Bravo team Akrone, I really recommend to all those who hesitate to dive into the adventure without hésiter.PS: the sign that does not deceive: I see, on the Facebook group, that the owners of an Akrone do not stay long with only one.... they have a nasty tendency to make little ones on your wrist to what I see on the publications.

Excellent brand of French watches. A new design without falling into the eccentric, a young and friendly team, and very high quality watch movements. This brand is to be followed by loan as it is called to a bright future. In a few years our grandchildren will be proud to have in their collection the first Akrone 😉

From originality mingled with classicism, not pat on the eye but remarkable, exclusive but affordable, here is in a few words what Akrone represents.

Very honestly I never think that they are good or bad by the way. But I really had to give my opinion. The service is exceptional really. I am the proud possessor of a k04 n ° 99. I inquired by MP in order to be sure to have my watch on my wedding day. I then made my order later. And what a surprise. A little message to congratulate me on my wedding. They made the connection and nothing but this little word is hot in the heart. That's what makes all the difference with a human-sized company. Thank you very much for the word, thank you infinitely for the gift and all the small intentions. Hoping that your adventure continues I am glad I brought my little stone to the building PS: promised I will send you pictures in groom costume

I wanted to thank you Erwan for his warm welcome, and the time that he gave us this afternoon (especially to me who is talkative) because he necessarily has things much more essential to Penserthis only confirms what I already thought : You are at the top thanks for making me discover in preview the few novelties for the end of the year, it must be recognized that it is a privilege and few brands are as close to their customers, it is all to your honesty Amicalementjerome

Indeed, a lot of waiting (4 months) but a regular follow-up by SMS or mail (or very nice phone call 🙂...) that reassures. And it's better to wait a little longer but receive a carefully finished product. And in the end, a magnificent watch, perfectly assembled and presented in an original box. No disappointment and an immediate adoption. The K-02 is a success with a false simplicity that makes it an absolutely perfect product. More than waiting for the K-03.

I ordered my K02 214 days ago, it's long it's even very long. I had phone calls to tell me that it would be delivered soon, I saw the updates a little fake that told me that it was coming soon. I received it this morning, it is as I wanted it. Watchmaking is a profession of time, patience but also precision. I wish this team would grow and be precise, they will have all the qualities to honor an art that tells us our mortality. Always ready to wait for the one. Since we do not realize the time that passes only once we know that it will stop. In short, a discreet and perpetual watch as long as my arm will advance, my expectations are fulfilled. Thank you, #468/500

Well received my K02 Black Manta 🙂 very nice packaging in relation to diving ^^ I had a doubt about the diameter of the watch vis-à-vis my small handle but it's nickel.

A beautiful watchmaking story that is taking its fly! The work on the first 2 models K01 and K02 is really impressive. I can only advise enthusiasts and others besides, take 2 min to go to see the site. It's very, very nice. Personally I cracked for a K02, a huge crush for this gorgeous diver superbly "designed" and with materials and components of first order! In short it was just not possible to pass by especially as it is a "limited edition."
