Kunal Naik is the managing director of Zee’s International Inc. and CEO and lead designer of luxury Swiss-made watch brand Swisstek. His intricately designed timepieces are renowned for their precision, performance and craftsmanship, as well as their bold and vibrant styles, which incorporate rare stones and other unique elements. And each collection is inspired by Naik’s world travels — everything from architectural and cultural values to the latest jewelry and design trends across the continents. Having grown the Swisstek brand to a presence in 100 retail outlets worldwide, with an increasingly high-profile following across Europe and the Middle East, Naik expanded his portfolio in 2010 with the launch of his second watch brand, Brillier. Debuted at the renowned BaselWorld international watch and jewelry show in Switzerland, the Brillier brand was created by Naik for a younger generation of timepiece collectors, to include collections that focus on fashion and affordability. Naik, 32, resides in Gilbert, Ariz., with his wife and daughter.
