Gruppo Gamma was founded in 2013, fuelled by a strong desire to design and build timepieces that can be appreciated by collectors and aficionados.

Gruppo Gamma produces between 1,000 and 2,000 pieces a year and don't enjoy scale efficiency like big companies do, but being small and independent they can focus on giving you the best ownership experience possible.

Gruppo Gamma is here for the long haul and a significant portion of its earnings is re-invested into product development and after-sales support. No wonder therefore, that our timepieces hold their value over time. 

Gruppo Gamma designs are retrospective and convey military and maritime undertones. After-all they are based in Singapore, a country surrounded by water and where fellow countrymen serve in the military. 

Gruppo Gamma is a microcosm of Singapore - small, with neither the tradition of old civilisations nor price-competitiveness of developing nations, but they are hardworking, passionate and have an eye for detail.

Within months of the company's formation, a group of watch owners started an online community now known as Club Gamma. Having been through ups and downs together, the Club now with over 1,700 members has become a close-knit community comprising customers and dealers from all over the world and all walks of life, engaging in all stages of our products' lifecycle. 

It's often said that when we buy a timepiece we buy into a story. With Gruppo Gamma, you get to write that story with them.
