Origine

NEOTYPE is the story of two friends who met on the benches of the industrial design school, united by a common passion for design, fashion, cars and watches.

Their evolution will then be parallel. For one in watch design, for the other in the commercial professions of major luxury houses.

After more than fifteen years of experience, they created a brand at the crossroads of their expertise as “makers” and their passionate soul.

This is how the NEOTYPE project was born.

Vision

NEOTYPE was born from a desire to create simple, qualitative and original watches with the awareness of belonging to a rich and codified industry.

Our inspirations :
Graphic arts, industrial design, automobile, aviation

A brand that advocates the permanent questioning and the Design in progress. Our watches are a contemporary interpretation of mechanical watchmaking with the objective of putting functional modernism and aestheticism at the heart of our collections.

creation & assembly

Our watches are created, developed and assembled in France.

In our desire to put design at the center of our creative process, the entire watch, with the exception of the mechanism, is created in-house.

The components are manufactured in Asia, the packaging in Portugal. Assembly, adjustment and quality control are carried out in the Besançon region of France.
