Our heritage

The word “Biatec” (or “Biatex”) originates probably from the name of a king who started to appear on the old Celtic coins minted in the area of today’s Bratislava (our capital) during the 1st century B.C. The name is also used to refer to the coin itself.

We wanted to make a strong connection between our brand name and our national heritage, so we named our brand Biatec. We also think that the minting of coins as metal objects has some connection with the production of watch cases, or buckles, since they are also made of metals and decorated with engraving, embossing, etc...

Of course, as proud Slovaks, we wanted our logo to resemble the Slovak national emblem, to refer to Christianity, but at the same time to carry elements of the Celtic cross, because Biatec coins were minted by the Celts. A kind of combination of these elements created the Biatec brand logo, as a very strong and easily recognizable symbol that decorates our dials, casebacks, crowns or buckles. The Biatec brand with the emblem logo is also our registered trademark.

Our aim image
At Biatec, we don’t create watches, we create dreams. The design of our watches is elegant and stylish, yet simple, while being inspired by our national heritage, as well as the great symbols of our country or the world’s technological achievements of the past. Our motto speaks for everything else:
“In search of perfection…”
