SISU is a powerful Finnish philosophy - translated into English as strength of will, determination, perseverance, and acting rationally in the face of adversity. The meaning is equivalent in English to "having guts", and the word derives from “sisus”, which means something inner or interior. SISU has a long-term element in it ... it is not momentary courage, but the ability to sustain it. While the term has origins in the Finnish culture, it is universal in it’s application. Courage, strength and resolve are timeless and admirable qualities in any culture and these are the ideals from which have launched SISU... a brand with the intention of inspiring and strengthening all that it touches.
The timepiece is a unique object in that it has a utilitarian purpose of simply telling time yet it can represent so much more to the modern man.

SISU feels that the challenge lies in providing a compelling reason to wear a watch in the first place and will push the boundaries of watch design and challenge the consumer to wear SISU’S bold, strong and sizable creations
SISU timepieces are wrist sculptures of bold and clean design. The SISU signature look and unique detailing set them apart from the competition and convey the strength and boldness that the SISU name signifies.
