a great watch was going to pay over £90 on amazon then they dropped the price again so got it a great watch nice heavy watch looks great on and is quality not the cheapest of watches but looks and works great


These watches and offers make me laugh!

Is he a real watch designer or is the the diamonique equivalent?

Klaus Kobec is not a proper manufacturer, worth £30 at the most! Ice cold

These watches are only worth about £20 tops....IMHO, the RRP is just a complete scam.

Looks good but not sure what you're paying for as the materials are standard.

I bought a hugo Boss watch a few years ago for £350 - regret it as there's nothing special about it apart form the name.

Prefer my £80 G Shock that is indestructible, solar powered and updates the time via radio signal every day.

So £75 for this is cold i'm afraid.

Brave to admit that Hugo Boss mistake - but there's still one born every day!

By all accounts he lives in borehamwood (not exactly Milan) but he is only 10?

Klaus Kobec is celebrating its 10th year Anniversary. He would like to take this opportunity to thank all his customers, many of whom return time and again to purchase another watch either for themselves or as a gift for someone special.

His watches are continually being compared to other brands of watches costing many hundreds of pounds more! They have even featured on QVC !!!!

Good deal

Very few watch brands are a 'proper manufacturer'. Most come out of the same handful of factories in China and someone pays a royalty to stick a 'designer brand' on them.

Doesn't mean they are bad watches but you're paying more for the brand than the watch. If that makes you happy, so be it.

In this case someone has invented their own brand and have been trying for some years to build it up. Maybe they should be well regarded for trying but unfortunately the watches are ugly!

Considering the Rotary on my wrist that has excellent pedigree cost only £50 (£82 off + £5 Argos voucher) £75 for what is essentially a 'Netto' brand is a bit much.



This was a case about trade mark infringement in wristwatches, although the basis for some of the infringement claims were based on the use of domain names. Klaus Kobec Ltd was in administration and had settled the case, so Mr Cohen proceeded as the only defendant.


Mr Fields had been selling jewellery for many years. Mr Cohen started selling watches supplied by Mr Fields direct on the streets. In time, Mr Cohen took over a business that Mr Fields had been running, selling watches via hotel showcases and it was (apparently jointly) decided to market an upmarket brand that they would call KLAUS KOBEC. The origin of this name was disputed, but a trade mark registration was made in August 1996 jointly between Mr Fields and "Klaus Kobec Ltd" (which did not exist at that time, but a similarly named company was run by Mr Cohen). Klaus Kobec Ltd was then founded and jointly owned, and in 2000 Mr Fields alone obtained a Community trade mark.

Business went well, and Mr Fields continue to supply all the watches. Separately, Klause Kobec Ltd sold sunglasses and other items with the Klaus Kobec name on them without any objection from Mr Field. A lucrative line of business was opened up selling "limited edition" watches to football clubs (with club logos etc) which sold for £75 - the club got £28 per watch at no cost to them. Until 2002 these watches were supplied by Mr Field's companies.

For various reasons Mr Cohen then sought to source the watches from companies unrelated to Mr Fields. The relationship ran into trouble, but was patched up.
