Inspired by modernist architecture, Auteur timepieces celebrate the unique moments of life.

The first product to bear the Auteur name was a new version of the classic pocket watch, which had somewhat fallen out of favour over the years. “This was in 2011,” says Baptiste, “when social media were taking off. If people wanted to know the time, they looked at their phone, but it took just as long to take out their phone as it did to take out a pocket watch.”

Auteur’s architecture-inspired revisitation of the pocket watch soon had people reaching for their timepiece instead of their mobile, not least because their watches have the minimalistic, understated elegance demanded by the modern gentleman. This design philosophy has been carried through to Auteur’s wristwatches, which are notable for their perfect marriage of form, function and quality.

“We have never wanted to follow a trend. We always try to surprise people” - Baptiste

Auteur does not set out to compete with high-end horologists. Instead, Thomas and Baptiste regard their watches as design objects, imbued with a timelessness that will ensure that they look as fashionable and desirable forty years from now as they do today. They also have a typically restrained Gallic quirkiness exemplified by their frequent use of wooden shells and abandonment of the lateral crown.

Auteur’s watches are notable for their meticulous attention to detail, and their use of the best possible materials. They are also gender-neutral, looking every bit as elegant adorning a woman’s wrist as a man’s. And as befits a brand called Auteur, all watches come in a fabric-covered presentation box that opens like a book, complete with matching bookmark.
