Since the beginning of our adventure, we have always wanted to make sense of Charlie Paris, to make society better at our level by making it more beautiful but also better. But nothing is perfect, which is why we present our different actions to you today with great humility.
It is important in our eyes to act locally, which is why our watches are hand-assembled in France by professionals and experienced watchmakers. By its history, France is the real cradle of European watchmaking. We therefore want to maintain and develop this tremendous heritage by combining both the times of tradition and modernity.
We have chosen to develop without intermediaries, so that everything is produced without overproduction with a balance between permanent collections and very limited editions.
And we are still investing more on the quality and sustainability of our products by keeping prices accessible through our delivery model without intermediaries.
We work with Leather Working Group Gold Certified Tanneries. This certification ensures sustainable and leather production: compliance with safety standards, reduction of harmful substances for health and the environment and lower water and energy consumption.
Moreover, leathers from breeding are first intended for food consumption. By working with our tanneries, we intervene on the recycling and transformation of the skin by giving it a second "sustainable" life.
Nearly half of our straps and bags are made from vegetable tanning leathers. This tanning method is less harmful for tanner craftsmen and respectful of the environment because the tannin gis derived from nature itself. And we will gradually increase this proportion.
Our packagings are manufactured by an ISO4001 certified partner, which ensures efficient and environmental management of the company. They are designed from recycled cardboard, ABS which is a recyclable polymer and with solvent-free glue. The paper we use is FSC certified.

Working with the energy you create with your wrist, they do not contain battery or electronic components. This may give them an incredibly longer service life, while being composed of more environmentally friendly materials.
And since 2020, we offer movements that recharge with solar energy so as not to use batteries.
We participate in the circular economy, so that used watches do not contribute to accelerating pollution but on the contrary, be valued to be used differently. With our EcoTempo partner, we offer a simple approach to recycling your used watches.
By recycling your used watches, in addition to doing something for the planet, you become an actor in supporting people in social difficulty through collaboration with the Sustainable Action Program.
We are a 100% independent company able to act according to our own will. Neither financial investors nor large groups are present at the capital. This allows us to take our time, build the company on healthy bases and develop a long-term vision that exceeds a purely financial logic of growth or profitability. Nowadays as everything must always go faster, we are very happy to have this luxury to be able to develop ourselves at our own pace. We are convinced that the best is yet to come ...
