They say necessity is the mother of invention but in Tom Kennett’s case it proved to be the father. In 2009, Tom was toiling with the idea of what to buy his father for his 60th birthday. His father - notoriously hard to buy for - had every gadget you could imagine and was a patented inventor himself. However, both Tom and his father shared a passion for timepieces and that became the inspiration for Tom to design his first watch (The Savro) for his father. The Savro design attracted widespread praise and brand ‘Kennett’ was born and The Savro is now one of the best selling Kennett Watches. Tom left his position working in a high tech company in the US, investing all his time and savings into making an impact in the timepiece industry. The Kennett ethos is simple, emanating from Tom’s rich family heritage in innovation and inventions. Tom’s great grandfather was a developmental chemist and produced some of the first synthetic plastics, his grandfather invented automatic farm equipment and his father has invented some of the most advanced printing technology.
