HI ! WE ARE PANAMERS

Inspired by street-chic trends, PANAMERS bring a new vision of watch industry by launching is first unisex watch model, named «Blackout», along with a collection of 3 different interchangeable straps.

With this first collection, Made in France, worked around matte black and minimalistic spirit, PANAMERS wants to share its fashion, urban and contemporary vision, reflection of an exciting lifestyle.

Quality, Creativity and Functional aspect are key elements that define the brand DNA.

Inspirée des tendances stric-chic, PANAMERS propose une nouvelle vision de l’horlogerie en lançant son premier modèle de montre mixte, dénommé « Blackout », accompagné d’une collection de 3 bracelets interchangeables aux styles bien distincts.

Avec cette première édition, Made in France, travaillée autour du noir mat et de l’esprit minimaliste, PANAMERS souhaite partager sa vision mode, urbain et contemporaine, reflet d’un style de vie dynamique et passionnant.

Qualité, Créativité et aspect Fonctionnel sont les éléments clés qui définissent l’ADN de la marque.

Young, creative and fashion addict, I had the idea and desire to create PANAMERS there are 2 years ago after lived one year abroad, because I didn’t find watches influenced by streetwear-chic fashion, combining creativity of entry level watches and quality and elegance of luxury ones. So, from this observation I’ve decided to create a quality watch with trendy style, the whole at an affordable price.

Jeune, créatif et passionné de mode, j’ai eu l’idée et l’envie de créer PANAMERS il y a 2 ans après avoir passé une année à l’étranger car je ne trouvais pas de montres influencées par la mode streetwear-chic alliant la créativité des montres « bas de gamme » à la qualité et l’élégance des montres de luxe. C’est donc parti de ce constat que j’ai conçu une montre de qualité, au style tendance, le tout à un prix accessible.

DREAM IT. BELIEVE IT. ACHIEVE IT.

DESIGN / CONCEPTION

First step of this aventure was thinking the ideal watch design. It took 3 months, many draws and tests to finally get the perfect design in contemporary spirit : a 316L stainless steel case of 10.3 mm and 40 mm diameter with aesthetic and clean lines combining with subtle sophisticated details.

Watch has a Quartz Miyota Movement 3 hands & date, a sapphire glass, and also a 10 BAR (100m) water resistance to accompagny you everywhere with style.

Fashion, Urban & Contemporary design !

La première étape de cette aventure a été de penser le design idéal. Il a fallu 3 mois, de nombreux dessins et tests pour arriver à un design dans l’esprit contemporain : un boitier en acier inoxydable 316L de 10,3 mm d‘épaisseur et de 40 mm de diamètre aux lignes épurées et esthétiques auxquelles viennent s’ajouter de subtiles détails raffinés.

La montre est dotée d’un mouvement à Quartz Miyota à 3 aiguilles et dateur, d'un verre saphir ainsi que d’une résistance à l’eau 10 BAR (100 m), afin de vous accompagner partout avec style.

INTERCHANGEABLE STRAPS / BRACELETS INTERCHANGEABLES

Once design done, second step was to create a straps collection completing perfectly the watch look, while conveying the brand image. So, I continued to work on matte black theme, playing mainly with the materials used : Genuine Leather for elegance, Natural Caoutchouc for a side more sportive, and steel for a style definitely urban.

All the straps are equipped with a system of interchangeable spring bars, without any tool, in order to change the style of your watch in only few seconds depending on your mood, clothes and activities.

Une fois le design de la montre validé, la seconde étape a été de créer une collection de bracelets complétant parfaitement l’allure de la montre, tout en véhiculant l’esprit de la marque. J’ai donc continué à travailler sur le thème sur noir mat en jouant principalement sur les matériaux utilisés : le cuir pour l’élégance, le caoutchouc naturel pour un coté plus sportif et l’acier pour un look définitivement urbain.

Tous les bracelets sont munis d’un système de pompes interchangeables, sans outil, afin de pouvoir changer le style de sa montre en seulement quelques secondes en fonction de son humeur, ses vêtements et ses activités.

Risks and challenges

I’m really excited about launching the first watch collection. However, the most important aspect of this project is that I fulfill my promise to you, my backers!
I put a lot of work into designing and building the first prototypes, but as a design and jewelry project I’m also aware that there will be challenges of manufacturing, production, shipping worldwide and more. My promise is that I'll rise to meet all these challenges and more with the combined experience and passion I bring to this project.
I've given a conservative estimate for delivery dates. I’m committed to keep you informed of my progress both during and following our campaign. I assure you that I’m working very hard to produce a sensational product that not only arrives on time but is of optimum quality!
I’m excited to discover about you, and your watch choices ! :)

J’ai fourni d'énormes efforts afin de présenter mes premiers prototypes, mais en tant que projet de design et de bijouterie, je sais que d'importants challenges m’attendent tant dans la production, l'exportation que le développement des produits. Ma promesse est que je mets toute mon expérience et mon énergie positive pour respecter mes engagements, voire les dépasser !
J’ai pu donner une date de livraison estimée. Je m’engage à vous tenir informés de mes progrès tant durant la campagne qu'après celle-ci ! Bien que je sois très attentif au respect des délais, ma priorité première est de vous livrer un produit abouti et de grande qualité !
Je suis impatient de vous connaître, et de découvrir vos choix de montres ! :)

THANK YOU / MERCI !
François
