Inspired by Exploration
Our brand name is taken from an old Dutch word meaning Moon and is inspired by a ship that changed the course of history. The name of this ship was Halve Maen ('Half Moon').
The ship owes its fame to the journey it undertook in 1609 to the East Coast of North America. This trip led to the founding of the colony of New Netherlands and the settlement of New Amsterdam, now New York City.
Inspired by this story and because of our Dutch heritage, we decided to start a watch brand that deviates from the beaten path. Like the Halve Maen, we are exploring new territory, creating watches with character.
Instead of following the season’s latest trends, we put all energy into perfecting a permanent collection that will last, questioning every small detail – releasing one model at a time.
