A nice luxury watch is essential in completing an outfit for any man or woman. The style and brand of your timepiece can say a lot about you as an individual just as much as the pair of shoes that you wear. Today I am going to introduce you to a luxury brand based out of London, England that you may or may not be aware of, KHAMAMA Timepieces.
What are KHAMAMA Timepieces ?

These timepieces aren’t just for keeping track of time but serving as an art piece for the wrist that showcases an individual’s very own unique judgment of beauty and individuality.
The Origin Behind the Company Name and Butterfly
KHAMAMA Timepieces is a family owned business based out of London, England operated by three brothers comprised of Managing Directors, Amos, Nathan, and silent partner, Simon Hornstein. Their grandfather was a draper traveling from Milan and Paris in Europe. The origin of the butterfly comes from there then 9 year old mother who received a framed butterfly as a gift from her father’s (Hornstein Brothers grandfather) business associate. Decades later, the three brothers would rediscover this butterfly in their mother’s attic and identify it as a Rajah Brooke butterfly. As it turns out, this butterfly was worth a FORTUNE at the time of the brothers’ mom receiving this gift and from that moment on, the idea of KHAMAMA was born and so the brothers decided that they would focus on bringing stunningly beautiful artifacts to the world.
