Kenissi is a Geneva-based watch movement manufacturer, 20% owned by Chanel and sharing production space with Tudor.

Kenissi was formed in 2016 and is managed by Eric Yvon Pirson (head of Tudor), Jean-Paul Girardin (formerly of Breitling), and Philippe Jacques Dalloz.

In 2018 it was revealed that Kenissi was partnering with Tudor to build a new movement manufacture in Le Locle on land owned by Rolex. The operation would be 50% owned by each partner and is expected to open by 2022.

In January 2019, it was announced that Chanel had taken a 20% ownership stake in Kenissi.
