Kandahar brand was established in Switzerland in 1928. Elite swiss products have been produced under this brand for almost 80 years now.
Well known Reuge family has been the owners of this brand. Reuge Music Boxes, which are being manufactured for more than 100 years are considered to be the most prestigious in this field. Charles Reuge was the first member of the family who developed unique pocket watches equipped with musical movements.
Inspired by the good genies of sport and technology Guido Reuge invented in 1929, a mechanism (christened Kandahar) for attaching skies to boots that quite literally brought about a revolution in skiing by liberating skiers, enabling them to move their heels from the surface of the ski.
This exclusive name was offered to Reuge family by the famous " Kandahar Ski Club" of Murren in appreciation of this great invention. To live up to this high tradition Kandahar Watches maintain minimum quality standards such as:
- All watches have Sapphire Crystal to avoid scratching and breakage.
- Only natural stones (such as natural diamonds, rubies and sapphires) are used. No synthetic material is used in the watches.
- Only High Grade Movements with Gold Plated components are used in the watches.
Because of these exacting standards, which are used in the production of the watches, they last for generations.
The company has a tradition for sponsoring truly swiss sports.
Kandahar has close association with many highly reputed universities and educational institutions worlwide. It creates personalized commemorative watches for leading institutions of the world.
