"More than a new watch brand, which will specialize in seductive universes to attract the newcomer, Hegid is a new way to wear and collect a watch that can adapt to the universe and the life events of its wearer. Everyone has the freedom to make his watch evolve and pass it on to future generations. Hegid is a watchmaking maison that we will follow very closely"
"Remember this name: Hegid is an emerging brand, strongly French (although rich in Swiss elements which guarantee a real quality), particularly well thought-out in each subject areas (design, manufacturing, packaging, distribution, communication) and focussed on an interesting anti-patrimonial concept: the evolutionary watch. The watch we create and recreate to infinity."

"The young manufacture pushes the concept of personalization to its maximum. Purpose of the operation: to respond to the desire of customers to have their own timepiece, according to their mood of the day. Decryption of an innovative concept that could be quickly rewarding."
"We have struggled for decades in the watchmaking industry to find an answer to this insoluble puzzle: selling an object which will exceed the customers in longevity, while still enjoying them as much, despite the passage of the seasons and trends. The watchmaking icons, the real ones, have the merit of going beyond fashion. [...] Hegid proposes to rebuild the very foundations of the sociology of the wrist. It opens a new breach in a world of watchmaking in full expansion."
"Hegid, inventor of the evolutionary watchmaking, has developed and patented an exceptionally qualitative mechanical watchmaking, which has the power to visually change according to the desires and needs, in order to never get bored."

"The future will tell if Hegid [...] revolutionizes the market. In any case, the nonconformist trio who decided to launch it does not lack enthusiasm and its project already has the merit of renewing a dynamic in a Franche-Comté where watchmaking is recovering. [...] The movement is relaunched."
"More than just a watchmaking brand, Hegid is a watchmaking concept. And what a concept! Imagine a modular watch according to your desires, your mood or your outfit, changeable without tools, in ten seconds.

[...] Hegid is quite promising and it is up to you to makehegid innove it to grow."
"French watchmaking continues to surprise us and renew itself with new brands offering eclectic styles. [...] In a day or over the course of a lifetime, Hegid brings the watch closer to its owner who becomes its architect and builds it."
"Hegid innovates with the evolving and modular watch, which the customer tries in store but can only order on the Internet. The store is commissioned on the sales as well as on the accessories of the model, not present in shop."
"Over time, Hegid owners can constitute a watchmaking wardrobe by acquiring capsules, carrures and bracelets that are interchangeable. Without sacrificing the timeless magic expected of mechanical timepiece, Hegid proposes creative watchmaking experiences on a daily basis."

"A few months ago when the young French brand Hegid presented its first models, I could not help but express frustration. [...] only one carrure was available [..]. At this end of the year, Hegid's offer takes a whole different dimension. Finally, we can really play and transform our watch."
"The Hegid maison [...] has really moved the horology world's traditions forward. The high-end brand provides a complication that, for once, is outside the watch"
"Hegid is a relatively new brand that comes from France. The beauty of its offering is that you don’t just buy a watch, you buy a watch wardrobe. You choose a capsule (this includes the dial, movement and inner case) that slips inside a choice of case shapes along with a large selection of straps, so you can celebrate World Chocolate Day with this brown timepiece, photographed here, and then create something completely different for work on Monday."
