DUO OF NEPTO
NEPTO, It's a duo that dances with time. It is the fortuitous meeting between Vincent and Florian on the Berghain dancefloor, a famous Berlin club where time is punctuated by a series of electro/techno tracks proposed by the best DJs of the moment. This was followed by a strong friendship and then a collaboration that gave birth to the young independent brand.
Launched in December 2018, NEPTO is synonymous with duality: it is intended to be both Parisian and Berliner, elegant and extravagant, dark and colourful. An opposition of style that offers an aesthetic richness symbolized by two collections: the N°1 and the SHIELD.
The N° 1 collection, singular and unisex.
Four models, with original dials that give them an offbeat design. The variety of colours and the two case sizes offer a wide range of colours to match all clothing styles.
The SHIELD collection embodies refinement.
A watch with an exclusive and perfectly balanced shape. The chevrons of the dial sublimate this resolutely unique shape. The Blue Ocean and Green Spectra are the two timeless colours in the collection, while the Black Eleganza is perfect for an all-black look.
« Details are not details, they are the design of a product. » Charles Eames (major 20th century designer)
What could be more accurate than to highlight a set of elements specific to the two NEPTO watch collections. Indeed, when it comes to watchmaking, the answer often lies in subtle details. It is on this point that the brand has paid particular attention.
The N°1 collection, selected compositions.
The 3D printing of the dials gives a material effect similar to an "oil on canvas". The result is a slight relief that gives a unique depth to the dials. In addition, there are thin hands specially designed for the N°1 collection, hollowed out in their centres.
The SHIELD collection, a strong identity.
A dial with thin chevrons framing the logo and indexes with neat typography. « Quick release » striated and stitched leather straps prepared exclusively for the SHIELD collection.
NEPTO frees watches from the monotony of shapes, too often round or square.
The brand is therefore coming on the market with two collections with resolutely innovative shapes.
NEPTO Number 1 takes its shape directly from the glass dome of the DZ Bank in Berlin designed by Frank O. Gehry. This very fluid shape immediately inspired us and from there was born our first model.
As for the NEPTO Shield, the inspiration came from the Paris coat of arms, a shield in which we find a boat and the Seine, accompanied by the famous "Fluctuat Nec Mergitur".
A special tooling has been designed specifically for NEPTO cases.
Water drop style for the N°1 collection.
Shield style for the SHIELD collection.
A true signature that differentiates them at first glance.
All these details are then carefully controlled in Switzerland by a former Prototype Watchmaker in Fleurier
NEPTUNE MEETING CHRONOS
Neptune's encounter with Chronos gave birth to NEPTO, the young watch brand that aims to be totally independent. Everything is signed NEPTO. The design, design of the watches and their packaging, photo shoots, online shop and communication by social networks are carefully selected by the creators Vincent Ifrah and Florian Fernandez.
The respective skills of the two friends and partners allow them to have control over all the areas that are necessary for the development of the brand.
Vincent has a real passion for product design and watches in particular. His very good knowledge of materials and design through his training as well as the technical skills acquired in the family business are all the reasons why he is in charge of the technical design but also of the design of NEPTO watches and their packaging.
Florian, trained at a leading Parisian business school, brings knowledge acquired after several years of experience in the financial departments of various communication companies in Paris and Berlin.
It dictates the line of communication that NEPTO will follow to best meet customer expectations and to propose design visuals in line with the brand's spirit.
The values conveyed by the company such as creativity, quality and attention to detail are clearly linked to the brand's independence. They wish to keep this freedom to develop their own visions of watchmaking now and in the years to come.
