Legends of Independent Watchmaking: Rexhep Rexhepi

Wei speaks one-on-one with Rexhep Rexhepi, a panelist from our Legends of Independent Watchmaking Horological Symposium at Geneva Watch Days 2022, to learn about his journey of becoming one of the most celebrated watchmakers in the modern era.

It has been 10 years since Rexhep founded AkriviA and in that time he has had to overcome significant challenges, being an immigrant from Kosovo, and the initial difficulty of having people appreciate his vision for watchmaking. The quality of his movement finishing and decoration is now regarded as one of the best in the business and this year, he has been nominated for the GPHG once again, having already won in 2018.
