For those that have followed TIVOL over the years or have had the pleasure of purchasing or servicing a fine watch at one of its locations, you may be familiar with Sham Agayev. A certified master watchmaker, Sham has been working with time pieces since the age of 9, when he still lived in his native Azerbaijan. Immigrating to Kansas City in 1992, he soon found himself employed as a watchmaker at TIVOL.
Today Sham can say he has fulfilled his main goal – he has created his very own line of fine watches. What he could not have known when this dream was first conceptualized was that his wife along with his two sons Shaban and Anar, would also be involved in this lifelong goal. In 2017 Agayev & Sons, in cooperation with TIVOL, began producing stunning examples of world-class, hand-assembled watches in Kansas City.
Each watch is built by hand, with such precision, causing production to be extremely limited. There will be no more than fifty produced each year – and it could be less. Even more impressive is that there will be no more than three of any one design, while some will simply be one-of-a-kind. Both the watch and presentation case will include engraved model and serial numbers defining their rarity. Given his partnership with TIVOL, these fine watches will be available exclusively through TIVOL in Kansas City.
