Disruptive watchmaking: Klok-08 Minim
Klokers, transitive design: the time of lights
Geneva, March 30 to April 3, 2022, ‘Time To Watches’ exhibition: Launch of Klok-08 Minim, a new collection that transcends the design values and playful spirit of Klokers, a watch brand manufactured under the Swiss made label.
The addition of an optical system on a curved glass that turns the dial into a real luminosities receiver
A genuine concentrate of micro technical complications beyond the obvious field of the caliber, the Klok-08 Minim watch from Klokers is distinctive for its hesalite glass endowed with a light-diffracting optical system. This transparent add-on is based on the Huygens-Fresnel principle to generate luminous effects on the dial: shadows, caustics, graphic splitting…
Its stripped display performs in neo-vintage mode the captures and the light leaks thanks to its squircle with 46 cones (mathematical union
between a square and a circle). The ultra-precision of a design dedicated to lovers of never static kinetics.
In motion choreography of shadows and lights
“There is nothing that is not stationary. Time unfolds as the definition of the impertinence of all things, nothing lasts and only the instant matters” explains Nicholas Boutherin in charge of the strategic vision and artistic direction of Klokers.
Inspired by emptiness, the sound of color, and the dazzling patterns of light, this delectable Klok-08 Minim collection presents itself as the definition of the impermanent mystery.
Unique almost ritualistic gestures
Carrying the DNA of the brand, notably through the almost ritualistic gesture of conveying this temporal object from the wrist to the desk or to the shelf, this timepiece embodies the founding quest of a new iconic design.
“With this poetry made of association of the senses and life in reverse time, this Klok08 Minim collection, like a plaything, lets the emotions overwhelm us for the time of a breath. It is an invitation to contemplation…” states Nicholas Boutherin.

Swiss made watch brand Klokers in brief
In 2020, just after having been awarded the German Design Award 2019, the Klokers brand was reborn with a new team and added know-how in the areas of industry, product design, branding, and digital. Revived by the Kinaook company thanks to the creative vision of artistic director Nicolas Boutherin, Klokers has already won several awards and is now ready to extend its values of design, ingenuity, singularity, lightness, and freedom to the rest of the world in a spirit of enjoyment. Its affordable Swiss-made is the result of the excellence of a gallery of talents concentrated in and around the Manufacture Horlogère Mercier in Les Breuleux, in the Swiss Jura
