High Yet Reachable
Ophion was created out of frustration but with deep-seeded passion for haute horology.
“The name – Ophion – comes from Greek mythology: the father of the god of time, an indication of the ambition to give free rein to creativity and imagination and master Time itself.”
The founder of Ophion is a fervent watch collector himself and have always dreamt of owning exquisite movements with matching elegance and classic style finishing. Needless to say, such preferences are often tagged with a hefty price tag. He concluded that it is very difficult, almost impossible, to find the characteristics of Haute Horology in affordable pieces. Feeling disheartened too many times, the Founder, Miguel Morales Ribas set out to change this. Miguel was inspired by watchmakers in the likes of F.P. Journe, Ferrier or Voutilainen, capturing their spirit of watchmaking, less the retail price of owning their masterpieces.
Ophion was born Spanish in 2015 with the goal of offering the experience of high-end watches at encouraging prices, appealing to both existing collectors and new entrants into the culture.
Making Haute reachable – Technology
One shall not find a fixed DNA on Ophion timepieces. There should be no limit to creativity, and inspirations for the next model can be found everywhere. Ophion watches are powered by Swiss movements, German parts and Spanish packaging. The pragmatic approach to its manufacturing, though shunned by most established watchmaking manufacture, is a practical alternative to new entrants to the independent watchmaking fraternity where more emphasis can be given to QC and cost-reduction in its entirety. Still, Ophion managed to get recognition for their aesthetic appeal and quality make, evident through the success of the flagship model, OPH 960, followed by the OPH 786. Ophion caught the attention of many when it was launched and today, it is a rising brand with a passionate fan base.
