Hygge watches are manufactured by a family owned Japanese company founded in 1949 by Ryoji Sato. This company has been involved in the watch industry since then, earning an excellent reputation as a major dial manufacturer, supplying renowned Japanese and Swiss brands.
Around 2009, it changed its name to P.O.S. Co. Ltd. and Yoshimasa Sato, older son of Ryoji Sato, took inspiration from the family history of watchmaking and that of Scandinavian design to launch a new Japanese timepiece brand Hygge. In Danish, Hygge is an oft-used word for enjoying the simple pleasures of life. So, the idea behind Hygge watches is: a watch collection expressing the Scandinavian passion for good, clean, simple design combined with an excellent reputation for watchmaking.
When you buy a Hygge watch, from Japanese family company POS you can relax, assured that you have bought a quality fashion watch with the after-sales backing of a reputable company.
