Watch Fit & Wrist Size

LIV Watches are designed to fit any man's wrist, and it is a matter of personal preference whether a watch has a "perfect fit."

For more guidance, look out for the "ON YOUR WRIST" section on the watch's product page for the wrist size range considered suitable for that particular watch.

Swiss Manufacturing

We proudly partner with one of the oldest and most respected watchmaking workshops in Switzerland to handcraft our watches. Switzerland is steeped in watchmaking history and is where all the traditional watch brands entrust the production of their watches. In fact, our watches are handcrafted alongside some of the very same brands that retail their watches for 2-10x the price.

Our watches are being made by watchmakers that have been crafting watches for decades, in watchmaking tradition passed from generation to generation. Read more about our handmade watchmaking process here.

The LIV Swiss Watches Brand

It is our goal to make and sell the highest quality, eye-dazzling watches and accessories on the market. We use traditional watchmaking techniques and the highest quality materials. Our watches stand wrist to wrist with the most expensive brands out there, but they’re generally much more affordable because of our unique direct-to-consumer business model (no retail margin built into the price!).

Watchmaking Process

LIV Watches are handmade in the heart of Switzerland, where watchmaking tradition goes back generations. The three-part cases are constructed from 316L stainless steel, high-grade titanium, or a bronze-titanium alloy. BGW9 luminescence is delicately applied to the LIV signature sandwich dials for ultimate visibility at night. Scratch-resistant sapphire crystal interiors are carefully coated with an anti-reflective coating for optimal display.

Movements are sourced from leading Swiss makers like ETA and hand adjusted and tested for accuracy and are meticulously placed in cases to facilitate specific watch functions (chronograph, moonphase, etc.). Straps are curated from the best French and Italian tanneries and are then handcrafted and individually stitched.

Painstaking inspections are completed for every watch to test for water resistance, condensation, and more. Read more about our 200+ step handcrafted watchmaking process here.

Custom Watches

Custom watches are only offered through our Corporate Gifting Program. Read more about our Corporate Gifting Program here.

Outside of our Corporate Gifting Program, we do not offer any custom watches. Our timepieces are handmade in over 200 steps, but we only construct the sizes and styles as they are featured on our online store or Amazon. Any watches purchased from us have already been made and are available immediately (with the exception of any pre-order items)!

COMPANY

Meaning of LIV

LIV means life, living your life on your terms. We started LIV Watches to shake up the status quo and live our dream of providing premium, Swiss watches at very reasonable prices.

We also stand for being individuals, unique, and not afraid to step outside the lines. The two are tightly interwoven. Like at any time in history, there are those people who refuse to settle for the mainstream; they want to express themselves uniquely. A LIV Watch satisfies that desire for many a watch lover!

LIV Fans

To LIV, a customer is a dirty word, a customer is just a number involved in a transaction, with no connection to the brand. Our goal is to build relationships with people because we want fans, not customers. Our fans are as invested as we are in this concept, continually giving us valuable input to improve our designs and processes. Our incredible group of fans is what makes us tick.

LIV Headquarters

We are proudly based in Wynwood, an eclectic district in the urban core of Miami, Florida. Wynwood is home to art galleries, retail stores, antique shops, eclectic bars, artisanal eateries and one of the largest open-air street-art installations in the world. Wynwood is recognized globally as a premier destination for art, fashion, innovation and creative enterprise. It is one of the largest and most prominent creative communities in the United States, and where a new generation of creatives and entrepreneurs want to live, work, eat, play and learn.

Being based in Wynwood enables and inspires us each day to continue pushing the envelope and develop new innovative designs steeped in quality that continue to rock the watch world.
