Founded in 2017 by brothers Fernando and Juan Pablo Mansilla, Pontvs is based in Lima, Peru, where the brand’s watch assembly and manufacturing takes place, with design and engineering handled stateside in Tucson, Arizona. The name Pontvs was inspired by ancient Greek myth, and you can see a similar inspiration behind the brand’s signature bronze dive watches.
Water is a common theme with all Pontvs watches, fittingly enough for a collection of divers. The Hydra is inspired by the mythic beast which prowled the coasts of the old Aegean Sea. Acheron honors a river from Greek mythology, the “river of woe,” which was crossed by Charon, transporter of lost souls to the underworld. Both represent strength and reliability, two key characteristics that are at the core of the Pontvs brand.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
