Swiss watch designer Jacques Fournier now based in UK, offer his vision of accessible luxury through a very dynamic and atypical watch brand.

The story begins in December 2010. Despite many years creating, partly in secret, models for the Swiss watch industry and also for international brands, Jacques was unable to find ’THE’ watch that suited him. He therefore decided to merge his two passions, design and extreme sports, and design a first timepiece under the new brand name ’Wryst’.


Now available on the official website, the initial collection comprises three limited editions of 75 pieces, Wryst Airborne FW3, FW4 FW5 with a 45mm case with a DLC coating (Diamond Like Carbon). The model FW6 with a stainless-steel finish is also equipped with the same K1 mineral crystal that is more shatterproof than sapphire.

Wryst has chosen the reliable quartz Swiss movement, the Ronda Startech 3540D, to power its timepieces. This is the first Swiss Made quartz chronograph movement with chronograph counters at 12, 6 and 9 o’clock. The brand will also release four new references within the first quarter 2013 in many international points of sale.
