is about to change. How about wearing your
credit card, your apartment access and your supercar
keys on your wrist? Would you like them all in an
elegant jewellery bracelet, no batteries needed and
waterproof? That´s were Armillion comes into play.
A team of jewellers, engineers, watchmakers and
designers stand behind this Geneva-based brand.
Their goal? “To produce a flawless cuff that features
cutting edge technology in financial services and
security access.” Indeed, an Armillion bracelet has
two main functions: contactless payments and keyless access. “We
wanted to embrace another way to use modern technologies, beyond
smart watches, for users that enjoy an active lifestyle and treasure exclusive
materials and gems,” says Carlos Z. Belsué, CMO of Armillion.
The first prototypes were presented at Baselworld to a selected group
of distributors and editors, and the first units will be in jewellery boutiques
in major cities around the world from July 2016.“Our products
are created for men and women alike, through a complex production
process, that includes luxurious handcrafted materials, and leading edge
technology,” says Hugo Pena, COO of Armillion. The company plans
to deliver a limited number of pieces for this first year (produced and
assembled in Geneva) offering an elegant expression of the success and
status that the individuals have earned by using the most exclusive and
comfortable payment method ever.

THE SECRET AGENT´S BRACELET
Armillion uses a secure technology provided by leading global payment
companies to establish an instant bank account assignation: it allows
the bracelet to complete the payment, simply by approaching the wrist to the credit card reader. Security is not an
issue, guarantees the brand, because any transaction
must be confirmed with a PIN; additionally,
unlike credit cards, the bangles do not feature any
number, which reduces the likeliness of fraud using
Nowadays, contactless payment is available with
almost all credit card readers provided by banks
to upscale shops, high-end restaurants and stylish
clubs around the world, and also at many ATMs. The
Armillion cuff is also equipped with a technology
engineered and designed by global security companies
that provides secure access to your home,
office or chosen location. Armillion’s products can also
be combined in a multi-level system, with a PIN or
biometric readings for enhanced security. Of course,
it will also get you into your supercar or superyacht.
