Marchand Watch Company Debonair Collection

Marchand Watch Company; the UK registered, New Zealand based watch brand founded by Daniel Brigham, an ex racer who is passionate to design and produce motor racing inspired watches. The brand plans to offer premium, modern, retro inspired watches accompanied with a Motorsport lifestyle.

The founder of the brand draws inspiration from his Great grandfather Adamir Marchand, a Swiss watch and clock inventor who joined Benrus Watch Company in the 1930s.  Adamir created many inventions whilst still developing existing products from inventing calendar timepieces to dash clocks for Chrysler automobiles. The life of Adamir Marchand has inspired the brand into existence to carry on the name of a true professional in the field of watch and clock making.
Inspired from the styles of 1960/70s automobile world, the company has created uniquely tasteful timepieces for its Debonair Collection. We have seen Motorsport watches with too many functions on the dials cluttering its visibility, but Marchand Watch Company has kept the dial details very simple.
Following the retro flair, the dial of Debonair Collection of timepieces takes its design inspiration from steering wheels of the 1960's with the 3 spoke style. The added colour changing feature to the tachometer at 10 O' Clock cements the authenticity of the speedometer design. Movement powering the watch is a Swiss quartz caliber manufactured by Ronda.
In its debut series, the brand has created 6 models of which 3 have case back engraving 'Classic Edition' because of their retro colours and 3 have 'Driver Edition' for their more vibrant Motorsport appeal. Featuring 3-part case with screw-in case back, all watches will be tested for a water resistance up to 10 meters.
The brand offers a selection of genuine leather straps as well as mesh bracelets. Each watch comes with 1 travel case that can hold 1 watch and a strap.

Marchand Watch Company has launched an online crowd funding campaign to fund the initial mass production of the Debonair Collection. By backing this project, customers can pre-order the watch on a discounted price range starting from £ 199.
