ABOUT US

WHO WE ARE

We are a French designer and an engineer based in London. You can imagine how picky we can be. We design our watches as well as if they were for ourselves.

OUR VISION

Don’t change your watch with trends, let the watch change for you

We were quite frustrated not to find an original watch that would outstand our design and quality standard. We wanted a watch that would be unique and will withstand the test of time by continuously surprise and please us with its design and features.

So we decided to create tour own. 

A SINGULAR DESIGN

What makes our watches unique is the design of their face that create changing patterns.

MORE THAN A PRETTY FACE

We not only design unique timepieces, we care about every detail to make them last in time.

OUR TIMELINE SO FAR
