Durable evolution

Hegid is a French Maison that invented EVOL, a dressing complication for mechanical watchmaking, in order to propose the most durable watches ever made. Hegid believes that Watchmaking needs a different, creative, playful, and sensible consumption. The world is changing and, with Hegid, watches are evolving.

Designed in France from the best materials, with reliable Swiss 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. The high requirements in production, the mastery of the know-how, and the independence of the brand allow Hegid to offer watches with an endless potential, of exceptional quality, and at a competitive price.

A mechanical watch is one of the only objects in the world that has no planned obsolescence. As the result of substantial technical achievements and now as a very personal symbol, a timepiece partly defines the identity of its wearer. Yet, over the course of life, expectations change, fashions come and go, and the watch can tire. It is human. Hegid's commitment is then to make Watchmaking evolve. Respecting the watchmaking tradition in which a watch is transmitted from generation to generation, Hegid innovates by removing the only regret that we can have with the watch icons: their design, made to remain the same in time. 

Hegid watches are composed of three elements made by renowned artisans :

  • 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 introduces several new models per year, bridging the gap between the rigor of watchmaking and the freedom of creativity. The most diverse inspirations follow one another in the brand's creations which are released at the rhythm of the seasons. Hegid elements are then a ready-made idea for a gift, and each new component multiplies the number of possible combinations. The more time passes, the more the catalog of the brand will be rich, and the more each Hegid will become unique.

Initiated in 2015 by Henrick Gauche, a professional watchmaking enthusiast, the Maison was first noticed at Baselworld, then by the media, before being selected by prestigious boutiques such as Le Printemps Haussman and La Samaritaine, where the brand is now distributed in Paris. Thanks to its faitful partners and customers, Hegid is growing every day.
