A UNIQUE ALCHEMY BETWEEN STYLE AND TECHNIQUE
FRENCH WATCHMAKING AT ITS FINEST
PHENOMEN'S HYBRID VISION
Phenomen was born from the intuition that an object the size of a watch could display a style as striking and inspiring as that of a concept car. In just a few strokes, the first Phenomen silhouette was brought to life.
What does it take to design, develop, produce and assemble from the ground up a phenomenal watch? A solid crew with a taste for challenge. The Phenomen team is made of designers, dreamers, engineers, watchmakers and above all enthusiasts. Different knowledge, skills, and personalities complement each other and provide the energy needed to create an unforeseen new watchmaking brand.
Alexandre Meyer is a French designer, an engineer, and a car enthusiast. He spent 10 years imagining the silhouettes of tomorrow's vehicles for a major car manufacturer.
Together with his team, he now applies this exploratory approach to watchmaking by designing unique watches endowed with the same attractive power as the concept cars he has trained his eyes on.
The PH-010 design movement is a pure product of PHENOMEN and the brainchild of Sylvain Nourisson, who after having designed fifty movements for Swiss and Japanese models, has developed a working system that combines the technical challenges and industrial constraints into one model.
The PH-010 movement features a whole host of innovative technical solutions, paying homage to the fine watchmaking of yesteryear.
Moreover, PH-01’s twin barrels in series provide a power reserve of over 100 hours – more than four days’ worth.
Escapement mounting like pendule d’officier clocks
Multi layer architecture
Hour/minute setting + quick hour charge
3D TIME SETTING
The PH-01 boasts an original, direct time display. Confined within a 100-degree span, this allows the human eye to capture the information immediately, with no need to take in the entire 360 degrees of a traditional display.
To achieve this tour de force, the PH-010 calibre needed double-folded hands that come from the heart of the calibre and bend twice to find their path over the dial.
The Phenomen design is a reflection of our attitude: an avant-garde stylistic approach mixed with an ambitious technical methodology. Elegance and talent mean nothing without rigor and precision. For our watches to be unequalled by any other, they need to operate and last as faultlessly as they look.
Each Phenomen watch is 100% designed, fashioned and meticulously assembled in-house with technical expertise and attention.
PHENOMEN relies on various in-house departments to maintain control over the entire watch-building process and thus guarantee the highest levels of quality.
A mechanical workshop equipped with both conventional and computer numerical control (CNC) machines that produce and test all our prototypes.
A horology workshop to assemble the more than 300 parts that are needed to build our driver’s watch.
An analysis and control laboratory with optical measurement devices to ensure that all components meet quality standards.
A test bed to carry out 480 hours of checking procedure for each watch before delivery.
All our watches benefit from the same warranty program: a warranty period of 3 years from their purchase, with the possibility to extend it to 5 years by having the piece revised in the 3rd year.
After the initial period warranty comes to an end, we recommand you to have your watch serviced every 24 months to ensure its longevity and accurate operating.
During a service, each of the components of your watch is meticulously checked (and replaced if necessary), and cleaned.
Our general service also includes the following operations:
oiling and lubrication
gasket replacement and
We also offer additional services such as:
The services provided under the commercial warranty is guaranteed for a period of six months from the return date of the product to the buyer.
