DONE: WHEN LUXURY WATCHMAKING BECOMES ACCESSIBLE
If you've made it this far, you're probably looking to learn more about what we do and how we do it.
Without missing a beat:
At DONE, we want to offer you the opportunity to acquire beautiful Swiss mechanical watches at an affordable price.
WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?
Watchmaking is a vast universe made up of countless stories and passionate people, sometimes dedicating their entire lives to the work
However, this universe remains too often mysterious and reserved for a few privileged people
We have set ourselves the goal of making this universe more accessible to anyone who wishes to develop their passion and access the sensations of mechanical watchmaking.
OUR SALES MODEL
How do we democratize watchmaking?
Through direct sales.
The direct sale via our online store allows you to make great savings because it removes the whole chain of intermediaries of the traditional distribution. This allows you to save more than 50% on the sale price in store!
Direct sales are the royal road from our workshops to your wrist. No more distributors, no more stores, just YOU and US.
In addition, this way of doing things simplifies communication: you can easily contact us to tell us about your needs and desires
They always inspire our future creations!
AND THE QUALITY IN ALL THIS?
Having grown up in a region described as the cradle of watchmaking, we cannot conceive of neglecting this fundamental aspect of the watchmaking world for a single second.
Quality is an integral part of our Swiss DNA, whether it be in terms of components, workmanship or service.
We will never neglect it at the expense of the selling price.
HOW DID WE GET HERE?
To understand the path that led to the creation of DONE, we need to go back some 15 years.
At that time, the brand did not yet exist and the future founder of DONE, Thierry Clottu, was working for major watch brands.
As a product manager, he noticed daily the staggering difference between the manufacturing price of a watch and its real price on the market.
It was at this point that the idea of creating a different watch brand emerged.
After having put his skills at the service of others for about fifteen years, Thierry took the plunge and created the brand DONE Watches in order to offer the greatest number of people the possibility of touching the so particular universe of the luxury watchmaking.
WHAT WE DO IN PICTURES
IN THE DETAIL
WE PROJECT AND QUESTION
From our office in Cormondrèche, a project usually starts from a dream, an idea that we are passionate about or simply from one of your suggestions. We discuss between us, study the market and put our ideas on paper. Then, we collect a maximum of opinions in order to better determine the interest that it arouses.
WE SURROUND OURSELVES WITH THE BEST
With more than 20 years of experience in the business, we benefit from a wide range of partners who are passionate about their fields and who allow us to obtain the best possible result, whether it be for the choice of a movement, the finishing of the case, or a particular bracelet.
WE WORK AT 200%
After the research phase, we take action by putting all our skills at the service of the product. Thanks to the latest 3D design technologies, we model the watch in its entirety and produce all the plans in-house.
IN THE SMALLEST DETAILS
To ensure that the final production meets our expectations, we carry out numerous tests. Whether it is at the design level by making prototypes, or on a pre-production for the functionalities and finishes, we do everything possible to obtain an irreproachable quality
