The story of a boy obsessed with watches starts with Vintage Doxa Antimagnetic. It’s the name of my first watch and I was amazed by it’s design and retro spirit. Ever since then, I have always been fascinated by watches, their design and how they work. As I grew older, I started collecting vintage watches. There was something special about them. They attracted me better than the watches that had modern design. There was something about their style, elegant but simple. They brought special spirit and soul to everyday life.

“HARD WORK IS PAINFUL WHEN LIFE IS DEVOID OF PURPOSE. BUT WHEN YOU LIVE FOR SOMETHING GREATER THAN YOURSELF AND THE GRATIFICATION OF YOUR OWN EGO, THEN HARD WORK BECOMES A LABOR OF LOVE.”
As I was getting older, I became even more interested in watches and I knew I wanted to work with them for the rest of my life. I went to engineering school so I had pretty good background knowledge. Design and construction were never an obstacle to me so I started working as a freelancer in Watch Design. As years were passing by, I’ve had a lot of success in designing watches for other companies and for people who wanted to start their own brand.
My designs were very well accepted and they were turning into a sucessful buisness. As time passed, I realised that the dream was to start my own watch company. That idea was always somwhere in the back of my mind and now it could finally come to life. I founded DK WATCH CO. Our headquarters, where we design our watches, is in Croatia. All the designs are in our own unique style, in vintage spirit but with modern quality and reliability.
