About this brand
Aquaswiss is a brand synonymous with innovation. By creating daring different timepieces that are immediately identifiable, the brand has carved a niche for itself in the competitive timepiece arena. Unveiled to the world in 1999, Aquaswiss regularly pushes the envelope in design and creativity and holds the patent to prove it.
The brainchild of third-generation jeweler Ian Afshar, Aquaswiss is the result of several years of design, development and inspiration. Afshar grew up in the watch world, with a family retail jeweler business that is nearly a century old. As a child, he worked in the family stores, familiarizing himself with product and people, and by the time he was 20, he was sourcing jewelry and watches from around the world. He became immersed in the fascinating world of watches and one-by-one began assisting others with design ideas. In the late 1990's, Afshar decided to strike out on his own – with designs that would be unique to the industry.
