Colonna watches are unique, because they can be personalised by choosing the strap that suits us best, and combining it with our choice of case! Straps that we prefer to call bracelets, because of their special sartorial detailing.
Colonna is more than just the name of our brand, it’s also the surname of an ancient and noble Neapolitan family, deeply rooted in a tradition rich in art and knowledge. One of this family’s descendants is the creative mind behind the idea of combining the tradition of Neapolitan shirt-making with the watchmaker’s art. The driving desire: to create original accessories that are as interchangeable as time itself.
Fabio Colonna di Stigliano - this is his name - is someone we might hazard to affectionately call “sui generis”. His gait is recognisable from a distance, and wherever he goes he takes with him a mix of personality and humanity. He’s never - and I repeat, never - predictable. Old-fashioned and modern, playful and serious, frivolous and profound; the only constant is his smile, which lights up his face…with sarcasm, of course!
Time changes all around us… but is it changing us too?
Perhaps there’s no one better than him to tell the world about this watch and the approach to life that inspires our designers. He entrusted his creative legacy to the young people in our research and development team, who work every day in this same spirit. Colonna is the brand for those who know how to choose, who know how to present themselves and have an irresistible desire to do so, for people who care about fashion and are keen on detail. Every one of us is one, no one and a hundred thousand: we choose who we are and we can do it many times, because definitive choices are not of this time.
We’re pleased to have values:
We believe every person is different, even by a tiny detail, and this is the most enjoyable thing about life. We have just one thing in common: The hour and minute hands that mark the rhythm of our lives; all the rest we choose for ourselves, and there’s nothing more wonderful!
We call it vision:
A black sheath dress worn with pearl earrings will never make the same impression as an identical black sheath dress worn with huge spirals of coral. The combinations you create as you play with the components will make your style unique every time!
