When cars and watches meet

You know what strikes a chord with you, so rather than trying to guess, we ask you. The aim is clear: to create a watch inspired by a car. Over to you!

The enthusiasts at the heart of the project

Our wish at Depancel is to create a community brand which places you at the heart of the project: you tell us what you want, and we then work to provide you with the watch of your dreams and the best possible value for money!

A passion for fine mechanics

Depancel is a contraction de Delage, Panhard and Facel Vega and borrows features from these iconic cars to create watches with a sporting DNA. With its logo inspired by the Facel Vega 1954 badge, dials with the look of an instrument panel and leather straps that echo the structure of driving gloves: each collection reflects this passion for mechanics, both in watchmaking and cars

How does it work?


01 QUESTIONNAIRE

Our aim is to create watches you will love and that meet your expectations. So rather than imposing designs on you, we start by asking your opinion through several questionnaires. Complications, features, proportions, range of colours, you choose everything!

02 PROTOTYPES

We then work on the design and materials to offer you the watch of your dreams, without sacrificing quality. To do this, we put our trust in our long-term partners who are passionate and do everything possible to ensure that your watch does not let you down at the first bend in the road.

03 PRE-ORDERS

When the prototype has been approved, we launch pre-orders for a limited time. With this system, there is no stocking, no intermediary, no item unsold: you wait a few months for your watch, and in return you have the benefit of value for money that would be unachievable in any other way.

04 PRODUCTION

Once pre-orders are completed, we start production. And we take the opportunity to ensure that you can follow every step of the production of your watch, from machining the first parts to the final quality control. We give you an in-depth experience!

05 DELIVERY

This is the moment you have been waiting for, impatiently, the moment you can finally wear your Depancel watch with pride (and tell everyone you know about it!).
