Hegid, French Maison of Evolutive Watchmaking, celebrates its first year of existence by unveiling new liveries of its inaugural model on the Black Series theme. The Vision watch is now offered in two dark versions: the Black Vision and the Eclipse Vision.
The most radical, Black Vision is plunged into darkness with the black meteorite dress of its Diamond-like Carbon® treatment, a anti-color that absorbs any light. Only instrumental indications and the eye remain visible and respond to the invariable silver Hegid crown. Elegant, racy, this precision timepiece in ninja dress is perfect for all furtive actions and other secret missions.
The Eclipse Vision shares the same body of carrure as its twin but is distinguished by the contrast of the light ring of its insert of silver bezel and the stitching on his Mission leather bracelet.
The creation of the Hegid Vision watch was influenced by the instruments of aviators. There are departure points, crossing points, objectives, that need to have an eye on. The pilots of yesteryear were the first to place a mobile marker on their timepieces. This dressing complication was quickly adopted by sailors and adventurers of all kinds. A mark that has become a valuable tool for all professionals too busy to watch their hands advance.
Like the symbol of its bezel’s mark, the Vision is a third eye that indicates the time spent, and allows to move forward in confidence. Inspired by night travel, where temporal information has to be found at a glance, Hegid erases the glossy steel and covers it with matt carbon. Thus, only remain the white, the black, and the eye of the Vision bezel, which marks with its blue light the objective to achieve.
The Inaugural Capsule Series dial presented with the Vision was conceived as an urban version of the navigation watches. The design of indexes take advantage of sobriety for more refinement and with the intention that this first Hegid Capsule can make alliance in harmony with the different Carrures of the catalog, often with very distinct styles.
The Black and Eclipse Vision feature Mission bracelets, in black smooth calf leather with black or off-white stitching. These bracelets are produced in French workshops. Perfectly matched with the black Carrures, reflecting elegantly under the lights, they bring the comfort and sophistication necessary to the professionals in night mission.

With his patented invention, Hegid has developed an exceptionally qualitative mechanical watch, which has the power to visually change according to the desires and needs, in order to never get bored. In seconds and without any tools, the timepiece is transformed with ease and freedom, which results in possibilities previously unknown in watchmaking. The watch is decomposed into three parts:
the capsule, the heart of the watch containing its precise mechanical movement, which, once purchased, will accompany the wearer for decades ;
the carrure, the body of the watch which can give a sporty as well as a dressed shape ;
- the bracelet, the dress of the watch which is the stylistic or practical touch.
Hegid is a young French Maison which invented a dressing complication for mechanical watchmaking. Hegid watches are made from the best materials, with reliable mechanics and assembled by specialists, to last several generations. They can also be easily transformed, in a few seconds, to adapt to the desires and the needs. After acquiring a Hegid watch, anyone can change it for the price of a birthday present. Hegid elements are then an idea all found, and each new element comes to multiply the number of possible combinations. If every collector is unique as a person, his watch must also be unique.
Between the French industrial precision and the Swiss movements, most of the manufacturing takes place in a radius of a few kilometers, between Besançon and La Chaux-de-Fonds, the world heart of Watchmaking. The high-quality standards in production, the industrial collaboration, the reliability and independence of each collaborator of the brand allow Hegid to offer watches of exceptional grade at a competitive price.
"Make your Evolution" is what defines the Maison’s state of mind.
Hegid watches are available on hegid.com, at authorized distributors, and soon at the Le Printemps department store in Paris.
