The word "techné" comes from the Ancient Greek τέχνη, which translates to craftsmanship or craft, « the rational method involved in producing an object through art ».
Launched in Autumn 2009, the watches designed by and manufactured for Techné Instruments have enjoyed a growing popularity on Horological forums in merit of their quality and retro-inspired utilitarian design.
Each timepiece signed by Techné Instruments is the result of a careful design process that blends ergonomics and style.
Our analogue chronographs are the best showcase of the Techné philosophy: every register and hand is made to look different, because each one tells a different story.
