As a watch enthousiast, journalist and blogger we see about hundreds if not thousands of watches a week and believe us or not, we see so many that it gets difficult to decide which one to buy. However, some watches linger on in our mind once we have seen them. KRNS – born in Belgium – is such a brand. And if we take the reactions of people around us into account we certainly are not the only ones to have a crush.
This year KNRS (pronounce KaRNS) was born in the country where Jacques Brel saw life, and where Stromae and Tintin have their home… in Belgium that is to say. At least the design is made in Belgium because the watches themselves are assembled in the East, in Hong Kong more specifically and the movements are supplied by the Movado group.
With slogans as: “It’s not about having time, but about making time”, KNRS wants us to reinvent the pleasure and delight of wearing beautiful watches. The brand caters for the watch lovers who are looking for style as well as sheer quality.
The range is vast: a KNRS watch can be urban chic, a sporting chronometer or just minimalist, and of course, last but not least, ultra feminine.
Quality exudes from the high grade steel casing, the superb and detailed finish and the numerous wrist bands available in a wide array of fine leathers. All this is offered to you without sacrificing anything of the KNRS philosophy: being truly affordable.
There are several collections, the 41 series, the chrono, the June collection, the Nordic and last but not least the Urban range. Prices varie from 119 euros till 179 euros. For that price your watch comes with a beautiful leather pouch. So, in the lavish Belgian tradition, you can spoil yourself with two or even more watches…
Have a look at https://bekrns.com/collections/ or at orotempo.be and you will certainly find at least one KRNS watch that will suit your wrist and your style.
