Our automatic collection
With the initial Heart open, we wanted to convey our passion for mechanical watchmaking by offering you an automatic watch with clean lines, quality components and at an accessible price. The whole thing assembled in France.
In addition to the open heart on the dial, we chose to attach to the back of the watch a transparent background that lets all the wheels of automatic motion appear.
If you want to limit your impact on the environment, keep in mind that an automatic watch will pollute much less than a quartz watch. Operating with the energy you create with your wrist, they contain no stacks or electronic components. This can give them an incredibly longer lifespan, while being composed of materials that are more environmentally friendly.
Sapphire glass is obtained from aluminium oxide crystallized at 2050°C, it has the same chemical properties as natural sapphire. Because of this, sapphire glass is a very resistant component, it is the second hardest material after diamond (for example, it is 7 times harder than soaked steel).
So sapphire glass is a glass that breaks or scrambles very hard, it will go through time wonderfully with your watch.
For all our watches we have made the choice to work with 316L steel, this alloy is recognized for its durability and also its great resistance to corrosion, two elements which we consider essential for the boitier of our watches.
From an aesthetic point of view, 316L steel is a stainless steel whose brightness lasts in time and does not tarnish. It also recycles very easily and in full.

The paper used is certified FSC to ensure that wood production complies with procedures to ensure sustainable forest management.
