Hello everybody, my name is Andy Bica and I am the founder of a new watch brand with a slightly different approach called Peren.
Even since I have been a young boy from Transylvania I had one dream, and that was to create something unmatched quality wise that will give the peoples all around the world unbounded access to premium quality with the lowest costs possible.
So after lots of Traineeships in Switzerland as watchmaker I've decided to open a small workshop in my home-birth town to be able to make my own watches with my own perspective of quality.
The Story is quite long, but here I think the most important is the product.
Peren is a startup founded by a watchmaker and watch enthusiast with the purpose to create products unmatched quality wise at the selected price point. The main objective is to provide to each individual the chance to express their character and personality through an accessible, high quality Swiss designed timepiece made using only the best Swiss movements and top quality raw materials.
The dream started to grow in my heart at the age of 10 when I had the opportunity to de-assemble my first mechanical watch which belonged to my father, and it was set to see the fulfillment day after meeting the most special girl that made me follow her in the famous watch capital Biel/Bienne. There being selected for various Traineeships at some famous Swiss watch brands and after successful accomplishments, I was forced to return in my home birth country due to the latest Swiss votation.
Having the famous Swiss know-how in the watchmaking domain I decided to start a small workshop in order to give the opportunity to the people all around the world to have a high quality Swiss designed and hearted timepiece at a low price.
The name of the brand comes from the Latin word ''perenne'' which means perennial
1. Lasting for an indefinitely long time; enduring
2. Lasting or continuing throughout the entire year, as a stream.
3. Perpetual; everlasting; continuing; recurrent.
The Peren logo is a vertical semicircle oriented north with sharp peaks in the southern part symbolizing the teeth of the legendary character ''Dracula'', a character inspired by the former great ruler and warlord of Transylvania, Vlad Tepes.
