In the middle of the worldwide economic crisis the Swiss watch market does not seem to stand still and continues to innovate. The latest exciting brand to come from the heart of Europe is Snyper.

The Snyper One is the first watch to come out from the new brand and it will be released in June 2009. Today we can give you an early preview of this exciting time keeper, which pushes both the limits of watch design and technical innovation, with this only being the start of it all.

The 44mm steel case is studded and coated in matte black PVD. The bezel is fixed; two steel fixation bars are assembled at 8 and 10 o’clock allowing additional modules to be added to the case. The sapphire glass back is engraved with a target. The time-adjustment crown has the appearance of a sight instrument, while the chronograph function controls remind of two triggers. The watch sports a 7755 S caliber, an evolution of one of the most recognized Swiss watch movements to ever be produced. The movement also features blue screw details and of course the red Snyper signature. The rubber bracelet underlines the overall sporty and military inspired look of the watch.

The entire watch, every single piece, has been produced and assembled in Switzerland, which is something even most big luxury brands do not offer anymore today. You can rest assured that the level of quality on the Snyper watch is of very high standards. This type of craftsmanship still impresses us today.

Look out for many exciting features to be rolled out in the coming months, including modules that can be clipped onto the metal bars on the side of the watch. We do not want to spoil the fun, and will wait to present those in the near future.

The Snyper One releases in June 2009, first as a limited edition of only 100 watches, each individually numbered on the back. Retail price of the watch is going to be 6950 Swiss Francs (6100 USD).
