About

You hear and read it all the time: “redefining this”, or “disrupting that” - when it’s always just more of the same. We wanted to create a brand that actually cared. Cared about their products, cared about their reputation and cared about their customers. We want to create watches that we can be proud of and will make our customers proud, every time they put one onto their wrists. 

Our vision was to create timepieces that offer luxury, style and functionality. With premium components, a Swiss made movements and an absolutely stunning hand-finished case and bracelet -  the Saint Urbain or Saint Martin will quickly become your go-to timepiece no matter the occasion. Luxury has never been this affordable.

My name is Mark and I’ve been a watch lover for as long as I could remember. When I was young, some of my fondest memories were of visiting my mother's French-Canadian family in Montreal. My Grandfather, Antoine, was an avid collector and had an eclectic assortment of watches. There were cheap watches, luxury watches, vintage, new, Swiss, Russian, French - if it told time, my Grandfather was into it. He shared his passion with me and I would watch him for hours tinkering around and creating his own Frankenstein masterpieces.

I carried this love of watches all the way to adult-hood and always dreamed of one day creating my own watches. With the help of crowd funding, I now hope to make this dream a reality. The name Antoine Clérmont is named for my Grandfather (Antoine) and the street he lived on (Av Clermont), where I spent many summer days. We would often take walks around the city and he would show me around and tell me stories of all his favourite places. So I decided to name the models in my collection after street names in Montreal.

For the last 14 months I have worked on the designing the All Saints Collection - and I hope to now share it with you and hopefully make this dream a reality. To all backers, I thank you and am looking forward to taking this journey together. 

Simple lines, clean dials and a classic look, the design of the All Saints Collection was designed and perfected during a period of 14 months. These watches are designed to be timeless and versatile, watches you can wear for work and for play. Every component is made from superior materials to ensure flawless operations for years to come. 

To ensure a luxurious look as well as a durable build, the case of the All Saints Collection was forged using surgical grade 316L stainless steel. The total height of the case sits at 10mm, the bezel measures 41mm and the lug to lug comes in at 49mm - making it quite a universal size. The case has a heavy brushed finish with a high polished shine on the bezel edge, this contrast gives each model a classy and sophisticated look.

Protecting the face of the watch, you'll find scratch resistant sapphire glass. Coupled with the stainless steel case and screw-down crown, this combination gives the Saint Martin a healthy water resistance of 10ATM (100m).  

Both the Saint Urbain and Saint Martin comes standard on brushed stainless steel bracelet with an elegant butterfly style deployment clasp. Each end link of the bracelet is engraved with our "Fleur-de-lis" logo. Like the watch case, the bracelet is finished by hand, link by link. 

After machining, each individual link is sanded to remove any sharp edges. Next the sides of each link are slightly polished to give it more of a shimmer. We then mask off the sides of the links to protect the finish, while we do a light sanding of the back and front of each link giving it its brushed look. 

Clean, simple and balanced. The no-nonsense dial of the Saint Urbain screams sophistication. The inspiration behind the dial is the teak decks of luxury yachts. The vertical lines of the Saint Urbain are one of the watch’s most defining features. 

The hour markers are baton style, thick and with a shiny metallic finish. The dauphine hands add to the elegance and look gorgeous against the grooved dial when it catches light.  The second hand contrasts the hour and minute hands, noticeably long and thin and has an elegantly sweeps, aided by the Sellita SW200-1, 28,000BPH automatic movement. The date window is featured at the 3 o'clock position, it matches and blends nicely with the hour markers with it's metallic border. On the flat outer track of the dial you will minute markings in white font. Overall the Saint Martin is a gorgeous timepiece that will allow you to seamlessly move from formal settings to work to play.

The dials of the Saint Martin have a subtleness, but they're far from boring. Here the combination of baton style indexes, and the location of the seconds track on the outer edge of the dial, gives a more spacious visual impression. The hour markers, are bold and sport luminous material that glows in low light conditions (when charged). 

On the outer rim of the dial you'll find printed numerical markings that make reading the time even easier. Perhaps the most eye catching feature are the two sub-dials located at the 12 and 6 o'clock positions. The top sub-dial records the minutes and hours of the chronograph function, while the bottom sub-dial counts down seconds. Also present on the dial is a date window, next to the 3 o'clock hour marker. All these elements together will give you a strong sensation of quality and precision each time you look down to check the time. 

The Saint Martin sports a multi-coloured lume setup. There are several luminous components on the dial: beads, hour markings and hands. The hour and minute hands and the luminous beads adjacent to the hour markings, use SuperLuminova BGW9 which appears white under normal and glows a greenish-blue during low light conditions. The luminescent hands make it easy to tell time even in the dark. 

The hour markings on the Saint Martin are also coated in luminous material. For these, we've used SuperLuminova C3 which glows green during low light conditions. This dual color setup is not only functional, but gives the watch a unique glowing design.

The caseback on the Saint Martin is made from 316L stainless steel. It has a screwback design allowing for the tightest fit and best protection against water. Featured prominently in the center is our Fleur-de-lis logo in a polished finish, which contrasts and shines apart from the rest of the caseback.

The All Saints Collection has four colour options to choose from - each watch being meticulously finished by hand, link by link. The bezel and case of the timepiece has a heavily brushed appearance with a gorgeous polished edge around the bezel. The bracelet has a lighter brushed look and all three finishes come together in uniquely beautiful final design.

We stand behind our products and are committed to fast and high quality service. Each Saint Martin comes with a limited warranty covering flaws in workmanship and materials for a period of one (1) year after the  original purchase.

We will begin product shortly after the campaign is over. Production will take roughly 4 months and we'll need another 3 weeks for quality control checks once we receive all product. We anticipate that shipping will begin December 12th, 2019.

Risks and challenges

The most common risks associated with any endeavor of this nature will be adhering to production & delivery deadlines. We’ve already produced samples as well as full production prototypes, so we do not anticipate any major setbacks as the path forward is extremely clear. If any issues should arise during quality checks, we will deal with them on site. We promise to provide full transparency and will keep Backers updated on any progress as well as any setbacks. To ensure that every watch is created to our standard and delivered on time, we will be in constant communication with our manufacturing partners and any issues will be dealt with swiftly with as little impact to backers as possible.
