Kairos Watches Reaches Strategic Partnership with Sequel AG, Global Licensee for GUESS Watches and Gc Watches, by Providing Hybrid Mechanical Smart Watch and T-Band Technology

Korean-American start up Kairos Watches, the creator of the world’s first true mechanical smart watch hybrid, has announced a strategic partnership with Sequel AG, exclusive distributor of GUESS Watches and Gc Watches. Kairos Watches will be providing the smart watch technology behind the Hybrid Mechanical Smart Watch and the Kairos T-Band.

Kairos Watches won the hearts of many watch enthusiasts who recognized the potential of smart watches but refused to give up the prestige of a mechanical timepiece.  The proprietary Hybrid Mechanical Smart Watch brings together a Swiss or Japanese mechanical movement with a transparent LED display, allowing notifications to float above the mechanical watch movement.
The Kairos Watches T-Band was created because Kairos Watches recognized that timepieces have sentimental value, inseparable from the watch. With the T-Band, wearers need not get rid of their existing mechanical watches in order to have all the functions of a smart watch—the technology and smart watch components are integrated into the T-Band, which can replace the band of nearly any watch. Alongside the usual features of a smart watch, the T-Band is also a powerful fitness tracker, with all models sporting an optical heart rate sensor and motion sensors. Kairos Watches is providing custom-designed T-Bands to fit specific models in Sequel AG’s range, so that users of these classical Swiss watches can enjoy the convenience of a smart watch alongside their untouched prestigious Swiss timepiece.

Switzerland-based Sequel AG is the exclusive distributor of GUESS Watches and Gc Watches worldwide, which are known for their modern, sexy, and technologically innovative timepieces.

Founded in Seoul, South Korea, by entrepreneur Sam Yang, Kairos Watches is a rising star in the horology and smart accessory arena and first came to prominence with the launch of its Hybrid Mechanical Smart Watch in 2014. Kairos is actively seeking investors and collaborators to expand its partnerships.

Founded in 2007, Sequel AG is headquartered in Zug, Switzerland with satellite offices in London, Paris, Hong Kong, Toronto, and Norwalk, Connecticut. Sequel AG is a member of the Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry FH, and a global licensing agreement gives Sequel AG the exclusive distribution rights for GUESS Watches worldwide. Sequel AG distributes GUESS Watches in over 100 countries worldwide through a network of distributors and 20,000 retail points of sale. Gc is a Swiss Made statement brand whose signature “Smart Luxury” stands for the brand’s commitment to provide quality Swiss Made timepieces and luxury products for men and women through the choice of their materials and design, all at a surprisingly accessible price point. Sequel AG distributes Gc Watches in over 70 countries worldwide through a network of 60 distributors and 5,000 retail outlets, including Gc boutiques.
