The origin of the brand
The name of the trademark Kleynod derives from the German word Kleinode and Polish word Kleinote meaning treasure. Kleynods are special signs of state power, symbols of the power of the hetmans of Ukraine.
The most famous Hetman’s jewels were a mace, a pernach, and a bunchuk. The jewels symbolized the victory and glory of their rulers, their wisdom and special status. Also used in regalia and as decorations during celebrations and holidays.
Kyiv Watch Factory is the first and only Ukrainian enterprise engaged in serial production of watches. It was founded in 1997 in Kyiv.
In November 2002, for the first time in the history of Ukraine, the plant began manufacturing watches under the Kleynod brand.
The production program of the plant was started by a watch dedicated to the space flight of the first cosmonaut of independent Ukraine Leonid Kadenyuk.
