Generously Donated By Fred Bekher of Horizon Watches

Being a Ukrainian myself living in Kherson where things are in complete chaos now, I want to use this opportunity and donate a prototype of my watch that I successfully launched in 2021 on Kickstarter.

The Brand

Horizon Watches is the brainchild of Fred Bekher. A watch designer with almost a decade’s worth of experience under his belt, it is perhaps not surprising that Bekher has always nursed a dream of having his own watch brand. He was finally spurred to make this dream a reality when he became a father, driven by the urge to demonstrate this to his child and leave behind a legacy of his own: Horizon Watches.
