Formex at selected Local Partners
Buying a new watch should be fun and a rewarding experience. However, selecting the right one for you is not always easy - that's why we created the virtual Formex Try-On App and offer a free 30-day return and refund policy. We now also offer the possibility to buy Formex watches from hand-selected trusted dealers at the same conditions.
In the course of our growth, we are expanding our network of Formex-enthusiastic partners who carry a Formex collection in their stores. All selected partners are independent entrepreneurs and watch enthusiasts like us, and we know them personally. Our partners and we are looking forward to your visit and are excited to help you find your perfect wrist companion.

Sacha, owner of Russell Jewellers, reached out to us in September 2021. He happened to visit his relatives in Switzerland, which are not far away from our HQ in Biel/Bienne. We met up in person, talked watches and after experiencing the collection first hand, Sacha placed his first order right away. His goal is to bring quality brands to Canada that are currently unavailable directly to Canadians. Sacha is not just our exclusive partner in Canada, but also our preferred service point with a certified watchmaker.

We've known WatchGecko for some time now, but when their author Richard reached out to us in summer 2020, there was no holding back. He was genuinely interested in learning more about the brand and we've sent him a loaner watch, the Essence Leggera Electric Blue. It's a love story from that point. When we sent a REEF loaner watch early 2021, Richard went for the title "This archetypal modern dive watch is showing the big boys how it's done...". After meeting Jon, Founder of WatchGecko, at the WorldTime UK watch fair this year, we knew that our brands are a perfect fit.

In his store, located in his hometown Nicosia in Cyprus, Andreas sells watches that have a personal connection to him, based on many years of experience as a watch enthusiast and moderator in the industry.

We then met the team at the Windup Watch Fair NYC in 2022 and received their first, initial order just a couple of days later. Arizona Fine Time has been one of the first watch retailers who adapted to the changing environment in the watch retail business. Along with their traditional, physical store, they now also run a successful e-commerce store. We’re really excited to embark on this journey together.

Collective Horology was founded in 2018 by two watch California based watch enthusiasts. By purchasing one of their collective watches with brands such as Urwerk and H. Moser, owners become members of Collective. We met Asher and Gabe at a watch exhibition in Chicago in 2022 and we immediately clicked, both on a personal and professional level. Besides collective watches, the Collective Shop retails independent brands that in their view, offer a unique perspective on watchmaking. We couldn’t be prouder to be a part of their hand-selected collection.
Showings available by appointment only.

Lewis is a Formex fan first. His wife caught him eying the Essence 39 mm for a while and gifted him the watch for his birthday. It wasn’t until we reached out to him, asking if he wanted to check out some loaner watches we had in Australia that we started to talk business. Together with his dad, Paul (now a proud owner of an Essence 39 mm himself), two generations of luxury watch enthusiasts are running a successful online and physical retail watch store that focuses on pre-owned big brand watches, and an interesting mix of independent brands that they feel very passionate about.

For over 10 years now, Ocarat and its Ochrono concept store have been determined to shake up the codes of traditional watchmaking by presenting an ever-expanding range of products, going far beyond the traditional brands found in traditional boutiques. With micro-brands featuring a strong identity and high-quality finishes, they aim to offer their customers something unique. It was therefore natural for them to turn to Formex, which not only combines these qualities, but also offers timepieces with innovative design and high-end technology. You can find a hand-selected Formex collection at their store, located on Rue de Rivoli, a stone's throw from the Samaritaine and the Louvre.

As an authorized dealer of a hand-selected collection of independent brands, the luxury boutique’s CEO Assaf Marom is clearly familiar with high-end watchmaking in Switzerland. It’s a niche that is highly respected among watch enthusiasts in Israel. Understanding the spirit of the times and listening to his customers has led Mr. Marom to look for an independent watch brand in Switzerland that has a lot to offer in an affordable price range. An in-depth study of the watchmaker’s landscape brought him to us. The range of timepieces at the Limited Edition Boutique is unique and now comes with a selection of Formex watches.
