We're on a mission: To good work with good people. Through trusting relationships and hard work, Neucarl aims to produce and distribute great watches to great people.
Neucarl intends to offer a bold, modernist design with retro-futuristic overtones. Primarily influenced by the fascinating Streamline Moderne trend from the middle of the 20th century, we borrow from the past and the future to capture the moment through stunning timepieces.

“We seek to inspire positive emotions through unique designs”
François Carlier, Founder and CEO
The values, beliefs, and convictions that shape Neucarl's mindset
Keep our independence, whatever it takes, no matter what they say. Freedom has no price.
Take the time necessary to bring any idea to life. Rome was not built in a day.
Seek excellence in all areas. The average is sufficient but less funny: you might as well give everything from the start.
We never give up because we choose to struggle. Obstacles are part of the journey, that's how it is.
Always put long-term satisfaction ahead of short-term profit, for customers and for ourselves.
Consider the other's point of view. Communicate in an authentic, humble way. Success is a consequence, not an end.
2 ― How we do it
Design is thinking made visual. We never quit thinking.

To give form to a vision.
We trust the creative process to express ourselves, to create something of enduring value. Neucarl has a stylish design, one of a kind, driven by passion. Throughout the past year, we developed a keen self-awareness and the skills to lead the projects that support our vision.
Neucarl was born from the desire to change the rules.
Watchmaking makes our eyes shine and gives us intense moments of pleasure through our conversations with our partners, suppliers and customers. These hundreds of hours spent each month serving Neucarl's projects prove to us that our strongest convictions deserve to be defended :
Are confrontation, opposition and conflicting relationships necessary in our daily life? We have long defined The Company and the professional world in this way. We refuse it. We prefer Positivism.
Here are our Pilars.
To promote expression through design and help independent designers to emerge.
To push for a healthier lifestyle and decide to live a rich life.
To encourage entrepreneurship mindset and help others succeed and thrive.
3 ― What we do.
We manufacture high-quality dress watches, with unique designs, in small series, sold at the fair price.
Neucarl is the only independent brand that produces dress watches from zero, without any catalog parts yet below the $ 1,000 mark, for subtle and refined enthusiasts worldwide, instinctively drawn to the positive emotions sparked by striking designs. In an era of standardization that dramatically oppresses creativity, Neucarl says Design Matters.

Not just another microbrand
Here is Neucarl's 2020 timeline
We're just getting started.
We decided on a selective pre-launch of The Sept Mai to a small audience. Our bold design proposal was warmly received by an audience of enthusiasts from 13 countries around the world. Neucarl now exists in the eyes of connoisseurs.
Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign
June / July 2020
In June / July 2020, Neucarl presented The Sept Mai to a broader audience, Kickstarter. Without resorting to a large marketing budget, the campaign's financial objective is reached in 12 hours. The Sept Mai ends its 20 days' campaign with a 200% achievement of the aim, which definitely convinces us of the relevance of our approach.
The three editions are now in stock, sold at retail price and on your wrist within days. Visit the Shop page.
