French automatic watches
In 2015, two enthusiasts joined forces for a unique project: create French top-of-the-range watches that are technical and aesthetic, made in limited series at a fair and justifiable price. The goal: to be part of the great French watchmaking tradition while satisfying the needs of professionals and watch enthusiasts.
In a society where our objects are becoming over-connected, where programmed obsolescence is the norm, we choose durability and transmission. This attitude is part of us, it drives our choices and our daily actions. Akrone has become the French standard in the exclusive universe of professional users. We meet the most demanding requirements by creating original French watches, made to measure to the specificities of each profession.
Recognised and approved by the largest elite corps in France, Akrone offers collections for military professionals, airline pilots, extreme divers, corporations, sailors and skippers. The C-02, C-03 and C-04 collections for private individuals stem from these projects. We have at heart to innovate by proposing materials and designs of quality without superfluous features and always in the respect of the French watchmaking tradition.
To ensure the reliability of our watches and the materials used, tests are carried out by experienced people, soldiers, sailors, skippers, etc.This generates feedback from the field enabling us to innovate and offer quality tools to serve their missions. In the Akrone workshop in Nantes, we develop, assemble and make the final adjustments to our watches. This is how we meet the ever increasing demands for reliability and durability of our Akrone watches.
