Hegid x Hervet - Celeste

For its first Hegid's watch in collaboration, Jérôme Coste, the Maison's Artistic Director, has invited the talented cousins Cédric and Nicolas Hervet to design a collection on the theme of Space-Time. Get ready for the imminent arrival within the Earth's atmosphere of Celeste, an evolutionary and retro-futuristic timepiece.

Hegid is a French Maison that invented a dressing complication for mechanical watchmaking. From their workshop in Normandy, the craftsmen of Hervet Manufacturier perpetuate the family tradition and make art furniture with meticulous respect for traditional techniques. The intention is to multiply added value by sharing the process with artists coming from other galaxies of expression, but united by the same love for the creation of exceptional pieces, as always crafted of noble materials. This creative alliance has given birth to a living object, a vessel that has aspirations of flights, that can be worn as well as contemplated, that informs as well as dissimulates. Celeste is a mysterious, geometric and uncompromising watch that houses a radial time indicator.

Order yours




The Hegid Celeste watches are available in limited editions, with delivery expected in October 2022. Celeste capsules, cases and straps cannot be ordered separately. To guarantee that you will receive the Celeste of your choice as soon as possible, we strongly recommend you to pre-order it online or in person, after having tried the timepiece by appointment.

Ask for an appointment at the Hegid x Hervet boutique in Paris or at one of the brand's authorized distributors to try the new Celeste collection.

The Art of Space

Celeste is the result of a long-standing friendship between Jérôme Coste and the Hervet cousins. For months now, Hegid and Hervet Manufacturier have been living under the same roof in Paris, near the Place Vendôme, at number 8 on the Rue Volney. More than a cabinet of curiosities, the two brands share a daily routine of a comparable intimate artisanal business, similar creative influences and a common desire to participate in a new dynamic in their sectors. Since 2018, the two teams have learned to appreciate each other's expertise, and it is for these reasons that, while surprising, this collaboration is organic. Hegid and Hervet Manufacturier responsibly manufacture products that last throughout time, in reasonable quantities. Furniture, just like mechanical watches, are among those objects that are not subject to planned obsolescence. The two companies are also committed to protecting and developing cutting-edge savoir-faire in France, professions that are generally socially and environmentally exemplary.

Celeste Capsule

Celeste is a mysterious, geometric and uncompromising watch that houses a radial time indicator. Its artisanal manufacture is essentially French, but it can be worn on the wrists of robots regardless of their origin. Its radar dial reveals hours, minutes and seconds as the hands fly by, driven by an automatic mechanical movement. Day or night, Celeste's brilliant indexes are easily visible.

Celeste Carrure

The elevated fuselage of Celeste reveals the screen of this observation instrument through a massive, faceted, brushed, robust octagon. Whether made of ethical solid gold or 316L 4441 steel, adorned with Super-Luminova or diamonds, this watch is made to match inter-galactic explorers' helmets and gloves in style.

Celeste Strap

The quilted strands of its strap evoke the quilted leather seats of spaceships as imagined by the masters of science fiction of the 60s and 70s like Syd Mead and found in many pieces of furniture created by Hervet.
