About us

Descartes Watches is a luxury watch brand. We stand for passion and elegance with a touch of philosophy. All our limited jewelery watches are an ode to famous philosophers. Our origin is in Amsterdam and production also takes place in this city.

The name of our luxury brand is an ode to René Descartes. Born March 31, 1596 in La Haye, France, he was a philosopher and mathematician. He lived in the Republic of the Seven United Netherlands.

Descartes is best known for his pronunciation 'Cogito ergo sum'. This means 'I think, therefore I am'. It is the outcome of his thinking experiment in which he doubts the existence of everything. There is no doubt about one thing, namely that I have doubts. In other words: I think. That is the certainty that I have. And when I think I also exist.
