“Adversity is the parent of virtue”, popular culture tends to say. While Pandemics is still out there and the world has been experiencing its biggest economic crisis, some people believe that innovation, creativity, and know-how are the leading driving force in the future. No matter how you do things, the truth will always surface. Meet VERAX, a Swiss-based company that was born from the 2020 chaos.

Street culture, the offspring of urban imagination, has infiltrated the world in 2021 with fashion, art, and music. VERAX internalizes this modern reality and reimagines it in the form of a true luxury streetwear concept with a clear message that refuses to succumb to marketing nonsense. The aim is to market goods in ultra-limited editions, often as little as one single item—a provocative marketing campaign based on uniqueness. The VERAX 420-V01.01, a Swiss Made watch with a unique look, kicks off the range.

According to the Swiss Watchmaking Federation, there are 350 brands producing watches under the “swiss-made” flag. So you could argue why do we need another Swiss watch brand, right? The answer will always be: “it depends” (which is very Swiss, by the way). VERAX is more than a watchmaker. It is a true street lifestyle brand that builds a strong universe, from which the first chapter is a watch. This watch was born outside of the overrun grounds.
