Where are Depancel french watches made ?
Our mechanical (manual or automatic) and mecha-quartz watches are designed, assembled and tested in the cradle of French watchmaking near Besançon. All mechanical movements are meticulously re-adjusted to guarantee the highest levels of reliability and precision - which is why we offer a 5-year warranty on all our French watches.
What are the different types of watches at Depancel ?
Depancel offers mostly automatic mechanical men's watches, but you'll also find mecha-quartz chronographs.
Mecha-quartz french watches for men
While quartz and mecha-quartz watches run on batteries, mechanical watches run on you!
Hand-wound mechanical watch
With a hand-wound mechanical watch, it's up to you to regularly wind the watch using the crown to re-energize the spring.
Automatic mechanical watches for men
For an automatic mechanical watch, in addition to manual winding, the oscillating weight (or rotor), which rotates permanently thanks to your wrist movements, enables you to continually wind the spring.
