They say necessity is the mother of invention but in Tom Kennett’s case it proved to be the father. In 2009, Tom was toiling with the idea of what to buy his father for his 60th birthday. His father – notoriously hard to buy for – had every gadget you could imagine and was a patented inventor himself. However, both Tom and his father shared a passion for timepieces and that became the inspiration for Tom to design his first watch (The Savro).
The Savro watch design attracted widespread praise and brand ‘Kennett’ was born. Tom left his position working in a high tech company in the US, investing all his time and savings into making an impact in the world of timepieces.
Kennett has created a ladies version of his iconic watch – The Lady Savro, featured above, is a chronograph face with a choice of coloured leather straps to suit any outfit or mood! The Elie range oozes class with a more subtle rectangular face and leather straps and a one off ceramic design available in white only, encapsulating a modern and futuristic feel.
Did You Know? A talent for invention runs in the Kennett family. Tom’s great grandfather was a developmental chemist and produced some of the first synthetic plastics and his grandfather invented automatic farm equipment.
