Hi, I am Thierry, founder of FOR8NER.

FOR8NER was born to bring a human and social vision to the watchmaking industry.

I aim to bring a more significant share of inclusion and solidarity to the industry.

FOR8NER is a different way of consuming:

Access beautiful creations that contribute positively to a better world. A concept already well ingrained in other industries but still too rare in watchmaking.

It is the perfect opportunity for me to share all my experience in this field in recent years and promote access to opportunities for the neediest.

With 12 years of experience within one of the most prestigious luxury groups in the world and after many months of research and development, I am proud to offer you the first ORIGIN models finally.

Today, I need YOUR help to launch this collection.

Please help me produce these watches with an innovative design, Swiss quality, and solid human value!

WHY SUPPORT THE PROJECT?

A pretty watch is no longer only used to tell the time today; it brings above all an emotion. It is a symbol of identity.

Acquiring an Origin model means benefiting from an unprecedented watchmaking creation and sharing our values. You will therefore have a unique place at For8ner.

In addition, during this campaign, you will get a price of up to 50% off by being the first ambassadors! It is my way of thanking you for the trust you will put in the project.

FOR8NER: We are here to enrich your life

No matter who you are or where you come from, everyone can act at his level and contribute to making a more equitable world.

It is FOR8NER’s mission and the symbol behind the ORIGIN model.

I aspire to make For8ner a forerunner of a charity approach in the watch industry from the first penny collected.

How are we going to proceed?

Behind each purchase, a solidarity act will be systematic because each sale will directly contribute to financing the studies of disadvantaged young people.

I fundamentally believe that education is the best weapon in the fight against poverty and social inequality.

My life journey reminds me of this every day because my parents had to flee genocide and landed overnight in a host country whose language they did not speak. Without caring people and access to education, I would not be here to be able to introduce this project to you today.

For8ner is committed to donating 8% of the profit from each sale to associations through our partner B1G1 (Business for good), a serious, reliable, and renowned actor in the charitable sector.

As an ambassador, you will have the opportunity to follow and, if you wish, to be involved in all this positive social approach.

Isn’t it gratifying to decide to wear beautiful creations and know that you are helping to transform someone’s life positively?

For8ner will be built itself through these values​​, and I hope to see many of you accompanying me in this beautiful adventure which is above all human.

Now It's your time to choose your ORIGIN model!

For the first collection of FOR8NER, I wanted to offer you incredible watches.

We are talking about a unique design invented from scratch, and connoisseurs know the complexity of creating a watch that is not another copy of what can be found on the market.

The materials are top of the range with 316L steel, an anti-reflective sapphire crystal, an extremely reliable and high-quality Swiss movement, and finishes thought out down to the smallest detail with alternating satin and polished surfaces for an upscale rendering!

You will have the choice among three different styles and two bracelet colors per model:

The ORIGIN 1 Steel Edition is available with its black or off-white strap.

The ORIGIN 2 with its Midnight blue color associated with the Rose Gold PVD, is available with its midnight blue or desert strap.

The ORIGIN 3 Black Edition, the only version to have the dial decorated with superluminova, is available with its black strap with white stitching or white with black stitching.

Each edition displays its style; now, it’s your turn to make your choice .

All creations are guaranteed for two years.

The watch will be delivered in a travel case offered for the occasion of this launch.

The delivery date is set for March 2023.

Indeed, the technical development, the partners were chosen, and the industrial tools were finalized. The functional pre-series have been received and fully meet the expectations of the final product you will receive. All that’s missing is your orders to start production.

It should be noted that the production of a watch remains a very complex process involving many parts working together. As with all complex projects, there may be unforeseen failures or delays - even though all selected parties are highly professional. Delays can also be caused by political events or even the pandemic, which is still ongoing. But be reassured, I will keep you informed of the good progress of the production stages.

Don’t wait too long and don’t miss the opportunity, because quantities with such discounts are limited!
