Rupturist conception, the pentagonal Tzoumy Genève watch collection On Kickstarter in September 2021, the rebel creative side of the watch world
The Tzoumy Genève colorful watches allow the so distinctive pentagonal design invented by Yvan Monnet to overflow from his eponymous brand to reach a more affordable segment. Ethical Swiss Made automatic models, historical Landeron 24 calibers, the symbols of a rarely seen creative freedom.
The Tzoumy Genève independent brand is the only one in the 21st-century watchmaking industry to rely on Yvan Monnet’s creative designs: a unique pentagonal shape, an ultimate classic elegance, different, away from the mainstream. Tzoumy thus revives those astonishing chapters in Swiss watchmaking
history when the same model was produced by several brands. At the time, case manufacturers, who were the only players in watch design, did not hesitate to simultaneously suggest the same shape to several of their clients. The latter therefore had to use their dials and finishes to differentiate themselves.
The Pentagon’s originality opens up to the world
In addition to its historical background, the launch of the Tzoumy Genève collection on the international markets also anticipates the current era: ethical, authentic, fresh colors, mechanical watchmaking, a symbol of refined, reliable, and durable art…
Tzoumy Genève claims to be different, ultra distinctive, with a pentagonal shape so atypical that it cannot leave anyone unimpressed. A design committed to iconization as an identity marker for those who dare to be different and who, whether discreetly or ostentatiously, claim to have a rebellious spirit and a desire to break away from the crowd.
Yvan Monnet is the inventor of the pentagonal shape, a truly original design first in a watchmaking industry that is still nurturing its past icons. He is also the founder of an eponymous brand that embodies, in the spirit of the cabinotier, his expertise in finishings and care for details. In his new entrepreneurial adventure, which is inspired by the Swiss village of La Tzoumaz, a place close to the environment, to his childhood roots and to the native Swiss dialects, Yvan Monnet is being joined by a team of enthusiasts determined to offer new horizons of conquest to this highly disruptive pentagon. Always with the respect of immutable values, ethics, and liberty of thought.
