What makes a masterpiece ?
Every watch has been carefully and rigorously subjected to the pillars of "bold innovation", "limited production" and "quality first", from design to the fine-tuning of the movement, reinterpreting the definition of a luxury watch for the new era.
A people-centred belief
ZTAGE is beyond a luxury watch brand. We produce creations that showcase concern for global issues.
Watch lovers can not only appreciate the craftsmanship in each exquisite design, but also participate in advocating "care", such as "love for the earth" and "humanly love".
From now on, the watch is not just a simple chime, but a celebration of unique, diverse and life-affirming stories.
People - the heart of building timepieces
To truly bring out the height of purity in a timepiece, practicality, durability, and comfort must all be considered. As we make unremitting efforts to produce one piece after another, all design process centres around the concept of "people".
Presenting mechanical finesse
with an insistence on quality
To ensure that each watch is of the highest quality, all models are produced in limited quantities to ensure that every detail is meticulously maintained.
All watches are produced in Switzerland, adjusted for accuracy at 5 angles and will then undergo a 240-hour final inspection. All these steps are taken with the utmost care to perfect the watch.
A passion for bold innovation
Keeping up with the times is what keeps the brand alive and kicking, pioneering across the industry.
ZTAGE dares to breakthrough and adds a contemporary touch to its products, combining traditional, modern and brand-new materials to present a whole new look to traditional craftsmanship.
The unique design coupled with the sophisticated precision structures ensure that the watch will be unique in its time.
