Contemporary French automatic watches with a vintage twist.
Born in Paris, Grandval offers watches that are designed and assembled in France. To date, the Atlantique collection presents two different styles namely Diving watches and Dual time watches which display another time zone. Grandval also offers a wide range of leather accessories handmade in France.
Grandval was born in 2019 from a simple idea: to offer watches and beautiful leather objects inspired by the ‘60s and ‘70s, the golden age of creativity in both design and music. The ideals of freedom and faith in the future led the most creative minds of the time. The very same ideals and energy that inspire us today.
In-house and with the help of rigorously selected partners, Grandval develops watches that are designed, tested, adjusted and assembled in France, as well as leather accessories hand-crafted by our partner workshop, holder of the precious Living Heritage certification ("Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant” or EPV). The Grandval name is a tribute to the castle of the same name, which has now disappeared, once located in the inner suburbs of Paris. Many personalities stayed there during the 18th and 19th centuries, Diderot notably stayed there several times while he was writing his famous encyclopedia. The castle gave its name to the district where Grandval’s founder Thomas grew up. Passionate about cars, rock, history and of course watchmaking, Thomas has been working in the watch industry for a decade.
