Founded by an industrial designer and goldsmith, Techné develops and sells precision military-inspired timepieces. The word Techné comes from ancient Greek and means “the rational method involved in producing an object through art.” We chose this concept as our philosophy, and as a recognizable signature on our products.
We started selling through direct marketing in 2009. By cutting out the middle men, we made sure that our product did not travel around the globe twice before ending up on the customer's wrist. All our watches use environment-friendly power sources such as a mainspring or a mercury-free battery. We chose to favor electronic files to cut down paper use on literature.
"From the start, we wanted to set up our business with an attention to labor rights and the environment. Carbonfund.org helps us compensate for the carbon emission generated by our activity." - Franck J., Founder and Designer
