Throughout my life, I’ve searched for the 'perfect timepiece' but with no success. I decided to take a shot at it myself. I started in 2016, and 3 years later the first Manawa was born. It was a long and challenging journey, but well worth it...

Manawa means "time" in Hawaiian. Time is something very special: sometimes it seems like we have all the time in the world and at other times we wish we had more.

Choosing to incorporate a touch of Hawaiian, we wanted to put the ‘Aloha’-vibe in our timepieces. So that every time you read the Manawa-time, you put a smile on that face of yours.

Driven to make a dent in the premium watch business, I tried to create something that was totally mine. The result speaks for itself and I am very proud to present this high-quality product to you.

Whoever buys a Manawa watch can expect the following 5 pillars

  1. Every timepiece is designed, assembled and tested in Belgium. These criteria make us the only Belgian watch brand that have 'Made in Belgium' on the dial.
  1. In our timepieces we have chosen only the best materials. Quality always wins over quantity. To guarantee quality, we choose to use Swiss movements.
  1. Every timepiece is handled with equal care and attention.
  2. Our timepieces come with a Standard 2-year warranty.
  3. Manawa takes communication very serious. It's the beginning of every beautiful story. If you have any questions or problems you can always contact our customer service. We're happy to help you.
