Who We Are - Alternative
KLO & CO is a Filipino watch brand that traces its roots to weekly Wednesday watch conversations of three friends over great food and even better coffee. After throwing ideas back and forth over our favorite watches and outstanding industrial design, we decided to create our own brand of unique watches that aims to share our passion for these little technological marvels to all those who appreciate beautiful and thoughtfully designed products.
We have carefully studied the art of creating perfect and precise watches and preparing each part to be specially created for each of our customers. Each dial is carefully designed to be able to attain the delicate quality that we believe each watch deserve to have.
Sketches turned into rendered drawings, rendered drawings turned into actual samples, and here we are today, creating watches that we believe not only we would wear and appreciate, but to each one of our customers as well.
