Meet the creator

Cedric Bellon, watch designer.

I grew up in a traditional middle-class caring and value-oriented family in Brittany, France. From a young age I was fascinated by sciences, geology, ecology, nature and crafts. I studied first Geology at the University of Nantes, then product design at « L’Ecole de Design Nantes Atlantique ».

At the age of 26 I discovered watch design and put down a few design concepts on paper which I sent to watch brands. Eventually, some of them, Bell & Ross, TAG Heuer and Longines, gave me a chance and became my first clients. From then on, I was hooked by horology and made watch design my full-time career in 2005.

Crowd Manufacturing

Crowd Manufacturing

The shortest and most transparent watchmaking system. Shorter than any crowdfunding and direct-to-consumer model, because it's factory direct.

A way of making watches that produces value instead of price because it changes the roles: Enthusiasts replaces the distribution, Creators replace the brands, and one Manufacturer replaces the global supply chain.

These 3 entities collaborate to substitute the gigantic and unsustainable traditional watchmaking and watch marketing organisation.

Who is involved?

The only 3 entities required to make a watch.

The Creator

Provides the concept and the design. Gets rewarded with a fair profit for the intellectual work.

The Enthusiast

Becomes a patron of the creator and supports him in design. Gets rewarded with the cost price or the wholesale price.

The Manufacturer

Manufactures the watch and executes the operations. Gets rewarded with a fair profit to keep the system viable.

Meet some of your watchmakers

Each of us has an average of 16 years watchmaking experience. We consider ourselves to be more than an industrial entity. We are a family and we feel accountable for our work and the socio-economic role of our company.

Walter

I am machining your watch cases. My job is to make sure that the engineering tolerances are respected. My machine is your machine.

Silvia

When your watch case needs to be finished with and optimal polishing of the sides, inside the lugs or on the bezel this is my job I do with skill and patience.

Andrea

The assembly of a case is a critical phase. The subsequent quality and water-resistance of the watch depends on it, and you can depend on me that the ATMs will be respected.

Giovanna

I take care of the of the aesthetic and functional control of your watch before it undergoes any subsequent treatment, or is delivered to you. I have a good a critical spirit and a sharp eye.

Giuliano

My task is to assemble watches by hand, making sure that no dust and no imperfection remain inside it and that air and water tests are passed. It's a serious job requiring passion and dedication.I seriously like it.

Mario

I receive the design from the Creator and develop the watch construction to make sure the technical, production and cost requirements are met. Technical drawings and CNC programming are my output.

Silvia

I am your customer service Angel. Your requests and service needs are handled by me. When a customer is happy and reassured it makes my day.

Jasmine

My work is final QC. I carry out all quality tests, including water-resistancy and aesthetic conformity. Only if I approve, a watch wil be shipped.

Elisa

I use my scanner like James Bond uses his pistol. Your order is picked, packed and shipped by me. I make sure that you get the right thing at the right time.

Marco

I am a leather artisan and I produce your straps. I use traditional methods and sustainably tanned leathers. My straps are made by hand and made to last.
