Mike Nekta of Nekta Watches
Mike Nekta, designer and partner in the new fashion watch brand, Nekta watches, knew at a young age that he was destined to be a part of the watch business. While growing up in Queens, New York, he became interested in timepieces through his grandfather, father and uncle, who had long careers as watchmakers and jewelers in Russia. His father set up shop in the diamond district about 30 years ago and the rest is history.
Mike officially began his tenure in the industry in his fathers’ shop in 1999. Very early on, he would often visit the shop and when he became older, he would work there during summers off from school. Mike credits his family with his knowledge and skill, whom he kept a close eye on while they worked. After becoming GIA diamond certified, he’d built his self-confidence and a solid foundation in the jewelry industry. He was now ready for his next challenge as an entrepreneur.
After many requests from private clients seeking something “new” in the ultra saturated watch market, the idea for Nekta watches was born. He founded Nekta Watches in conjunction with his cousin Dave Nekta, with a strong belief in combining the beauty of a fashion product with the best Swiss watch making techniques. For over four generations, the fine craftsmen and talents of the Nekta family of watchmakers and fine jewelers were on a quest for perfection and beauty. This tradition continues today into the next generation, with Mike and Dave Nekta.
Mike’s enthusiasm and belief in his company is apparent in his designs and capabilities to create a successful watch brand. The “New Kid on The Block” of the fashion watch scene has arrived, following a long family tradition in combination with a youthful and refreshing approach. Mike Nekta and Nekta watches will certainly be a brand to watch.
