For those of you wondering how Kenissi relates to Tudor, Professional Watches reached out to Kenissi and they referred us to this generic release and said this was the only details they could provide.

“In 2010 the Tudor watch brand launched an ambitious project to develop its industrial production capacity for mechanical movements. To this end, the brand brought together a group of experts and presented an initial caliber manufactured by Tudor at Baselworld in 2015, in variations to equip two different watches.

The following year the Genevan watch brand created the Kenissi company to oversee the development and production of its movements and, in parallel, offer its technical expertise in the field of movements to third-party brands. The first industrial partnership was then forged with Breitling. As its business developed, in 2018 Kenissi then formed an industrial alliance with Chanel, supplying the caliber for its new J12.

Today Kenissi offers a wide range of self-winding movements derived from the TUDOR Manufacture calibers. These customizable, high-performance, highly robust movements are entirely developed and produced in Switzerland.

Founded in 2016, based in Le Locle. ‘Kenissi’ comes from the ancient Greek Kinesis meaning in movement, a reference to its activity and ambitions.

Kenissi’s product range comprises two families of customizable, high-performance self-winding movements – large and medium-size – which can incorporate numerous functions such as a calendar, power reserve indicator, or GMT function.”
