In answer to the current difficulties to visit the boutique, Hegid has developed some new online services that allow its enthusiasts to live different quality watchmaking experiences.
THE HOME TRIAL
To try at home the watches without having to advance the money
The Hegid Maison offers to try the watches at home, at no additional cost. Once the TRY NOW PAY LATER order has been placed on hegid.com and confirmed by Hegid's French financial partner, Pledg, the customer receives the products at home. The client has then 7 days to try them out in real, before deciding to keep or return the products that have been consigned. The customer only pays for those he keeps. More details.
THE VIDEO ADVISOR
To live the experience of the boutique in video, from home
To understand the full potential of Hegid evolutive watches, the company now offers a personalized live video demonstration service with its advisors, directly from the hegid.com product pages. In live or by appointment, using any device and in just a few clicks, visitors can talk with a watch expert from the brand, who is ready to give tips and behind the scenes confidences of the Maison. Example.
THE HEGID WRISTWATCH FILTER
To try the watches virtually from a smartphone
On Facebook, thanks to the WRISTWATCH augmented reality filter and a smartphone's camera, users can now see Hegid watch configurations on their left wrist. This entertaining experience allows them to discover, in a very visual way, a selection of the brand's models, which is convenient to make a first choice. Discover the filter on the Facebook application.
THE OPEN PAYMENT
To be able to choose how to securely pay
In addition to the traditional credit card payment services, Hegid now offers the possibility to pay for all purchases in crypto currency thanks to the international Coinbase platform, in several installments free of charge with the French financing solution Alma, and with other secure means such as Apple Pay, Amazon Pay, or PayPal.

Hegid is a French company which invented a dressing complication for mechanical watchmaking. Designed from the best materials, with reliable mechanics which has already been proved by major watchmaking Maisons, Hegid watches are made to last for generations. They can also be easily transformed, in a few seconds, to adapt to desires and situations. After purchasing a Hegid watch, anyone can upgrade it with a new carrure, a new capsule or a new bracelet. Created under the guidance of the brand's artistic director, Jerôme Coste, Hegid elements are then a ready-made idea for a gift, and each new element multiplies the number of possible combinations. If every collector is unique as a person, his watch must also be unique. Between the French precision industry and the Swiss movements, most of the manufacturing takes place within a few kilometers, between Besançon and La Chaux-de-Fonds, the world heart of Watchmaking. The requirement in production, the mastery of know-how and the independence of the brand allow Hegid to offer watches of exceptional quality at a competitive price. At a time when our flexibility to adapt is required, the Hegid Maison responds: "Make your Evolution". Make your Evolution, whether in the head or on the wrist.
