Cedric Johner

a watchmaker and jeweler, he founded his own watch brand in 1997 in a small town near Geneva. Since then, the name Cedric Johner has been synonymous with many things: perfect watch design, outstanding technology, craftsmanship and custom-built, personalized timepieces. Johner's Abyss watch cases are highly distinctive, with their octagonal shape and unusual sleek design. His range encompasses a wide selection of variations, with different bracelet and dial designs, a variety of different materials and varying numbers of complications. With so much to choose from, it comes as no surprise that Johner only makes approximately 200 watches a year.
