About

Le projet Baricentro est né il y a presque 2 ans ! Plus de 700 jours passés à élaborer, à designer, s'entourer, modéliser, créer, prototyper des gardes-temps inspirés des montres retro-vintage des années 50'.
De la qualité "Made in France" accessible, tel est le maître-mot de notre projet. Comment réussir à maintenir des prix accessibles ? Nous éliminons tous les coûts intermédiaires grâce à notre système de distribution directe.

La marque trouve quant à elle, son inspiration à la frontière franco-italienne, dans la région de Menton et ses alentours, où nous avions l’habitude d’aller en famille l’été. Ces belles côtes, ces paysages montagneux et toutes ces nuances bleutées nous inspirent. Cette région représente à la fois le beau et le savoir-vivre français mais aussi la dolce vita italienne, c’est pourquoi nous essayons au maximum de garder ces deux empreintes lorsque nous designons les modèles Baricentro.   

Les modèles trouvent quant à eux leur inspiration dans les montres retro-vintage italiennes des années 50 et mêlent à ce design la qualité des techniques de fabrication d’aujourd’hui. C’est ainsi que nous trouvons notre point d’équilibre, le barycentre de la marque ! 

Imaginez le design d'une montre vintage avec des matériaux récents robustes et fiables ! Ajoutez à cela des techniques de fabrication moderne et ultra précise. Insérez au coeur, un mouvement automatique 26 rubis d'un des leaders du marché. Finalisez le tout avec un bracelet en cuir français et une boucle déployante papillon : telle est la recette pour créer une montre Baricentro.

Pour vous assurer la meilleure expérience possible, nous avons fait le choix de travailler avec des partenaires français disposant de plus d'un siècle d'expériences dans l'horlogerie.

Il est enfin temps de redonner ses lettres de noblesse à l'artisanat français.

 LA COLLECTION :

 Notre modèle Rivage dispose d’un cadran 24H à 9h et d’un œillet « date » à 3h

                                               

The Baricentro project was born almost 2 years ago ! More than 700 days spent drawing, designing, surrounding, modeling, creating and prototyping timepieces inspired by retro-vintage watches of the 50'. The "Made in France" quality affordable, this is the word-key of our project. How to successfully maintain affordable prices ? We eliminate all intermediate costs thanks to our direct distribution system.

The brand finds its inspiration on the Franco-Italian border, in the region of Menton and its surroundings, where we used to go with family in summer. These beautiful coastlines, mountainous landscapes and all these bluish shades inspire us. This region represents both French beauty and good-manners but also the trendy Italian Dolce Vita, so we try to keep these two footprints as much as possible when we design the Baricentro models. 

Our models find their inspiration in the retro-vintage Italian watches of the 50s' and mix with this design the quality of the manufacturing techniques of nowadays. This is how we find our point of balance, the center of gravity of the brand !

Imagine the design of a vintage watch with robust and reliable new materials ! Add to that modern and ultra-precise manufacturing techniques. Insert in the heart, a 26 jewels automatic movement (from one of the market leaders). Finalize with a French leather strap and a butterfly folding clasp: this is the recipe for creating a Baricentro watch.

For providing you the best experience, we have chosen to work with French partners with more than a century of experience in watchmaking.

It's finally time to give back its nobility to french crafts.

 THE COLLECTION :

Our Rivage model has a "24H" subdial at 9 o'clock and a "date" section at 3 o'clock

                                               

Risks and challenges

Le projet Baricentro a débuté il y a presque 2 ans. Durant tous ces mois, nous avons passé de longs moments à étudier, designer, créer des montres mécaniques de qualité ! Nos partenaires français disposent d'une solide expérience dans l'horlogerie et sont enfin prêts à lancer la production au plus vite dès lors que l'objectif Kickstarter sera atteint.

Nous sommes donc désormais entourés d'experts du secteur dans tous les domaines nécessaires à notre lancement. Nous avons donc mis en place des calendriers pour l'expédition et nous sommes désormais convaincus que nous respecterons les délais de livraison indiqués.

Nos prototypes sont désormais au point, nous les avons présenté au cours des derniers mois à des journalistes, des influenceurs ou encore des horlogers qui nous ont fait de précieux retours et nous les remercions pour avoir contribué aux produits finaux tels que vous les connaissez aujourd'hui !

Nous tenions également à remercier tous ceux qui croient en notre projet et qui ont, de n'importe quelle façon, aider à son développement.
