Szanto watches : Founded on a love for military watches
It was in 1989 that the history of Szanto watches began with the creation of watches, a brand built around self-luminous watchmaking technology. Barry Cohen, based in the United States, was already a veteran of the watch industry and, with his business partner, created a company to capitalize on the new GTLS technology. In the natural context of new business growth, they created a number of their own brands, Szanto being the first.
Cohen was interested in vintage watches, particularly the first watches developed for military use. His concept was simple, creating the best of his designs, but with modern clock technology and a new size. Essentially, this meant making vintage pieces larger than the originals and using modern Japanese quartz movements or automatisms. So Szanto is a niche brand that caters to special tastes.The name Szanto, as the inspiration for the brand, is inspired by the past. It represents an old family name.
