When does the Merveilleux ship?
The Merveilleux ships in mid-Dec 2018, with ample time to be presented as a gift for your loved ones or for you to wear to one of the many swanky New Year's galas.
How much is shipping?
International tracked and insured shipping is used for all watches.
Shipping will be calculated at despatch and we will inform the owner before shipment. Various rates are available depending on budget, but all are reasonably-priced.
How do you handle servicing?
Just send your watch back to us and we will service it for you with our compliments, hassle-free, during the warranty period.
The Merveilleux uses the ETA 2824 movement which is possibly the simplest movement in the universe to service, so you could also have it done locally.
For the Majestique, we have an international service centre in Switzerland run by Vaucher that will service our sophisticated micro-rotor movement.
Our turnaround time is 1-2 months for routine servicing, significantly quicker than the industry average of 4-6 months.
Even after the warranty period ends, we will always stand by our watches, and will service any watch that bears the Millésime name at cost price.
Just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll handle everything.
Can I swap the strap on my watch for a different colour?
Yes you can. Just send us an email at email@example.com, attaching your order receipt and desired strap colour. This is subject to the strap colour being available.
Can you gift wrap my watch?
We'd be delighted to! Just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, attaching your order receipt and any remarks on the giftee's preferences. As far as possible, we will endeavour to handwrite your message with our collection of vintage fountain pens to utterly delight your loved one.
Why are there real photos of the Rose Gold Merveilleux watches but only renders of the Stainless Steel ones?
The Merveilleux was originally envisioned as a rose gold watch but one of our first clients (a former executive at a Swiss trinity watch brand and now an executive at one of the world's largest auction houses) asked for his to be modified bespoke to a stainless steel case. After receiving several similar requests, we decided to create a new series of Merveilleux in Stainless Steel.
However, we decided not to create prototypes of these as they would not be in time for the pre-order, and instead move directly to production. As you can see, they are immaculately exquisite.
Why are there only renders of the Ivory dial Merveilleux?
We decided to produce the Merveilleux with an Ivory dial after receiving several requests. However, we decided not to create prototypes of these as they would not be in time for the pre-order, and instead move directly to production. As you can see, they are the paragon of elegant simplicity.

One of the benefits of being a boutique luxury watch brand is our ability to cater to our cherished clients' needs in ways that the mainstream brands simply can't.

Why the brand name Millésime? And what does Majestique and Merveilleux mean?
Millésime is French for "vintage", alluding to the magnificent vintage watches of the Art Deco period and 1950s that we draw our inspiration from. We decided on a simple brand name that harmonizes with the simple and purist elegance of our watches.
Majestique and Merveilleux is Swiss-French for "majestic" and "marvellous" respectively. The choice of Swiss-French names honours the Swiss origins of our watch movements, namely Fleurier in the district of Val-de-Travers in the canton of Neuchâtel, and Grenchen, in the district of Lebern at the foot of the Jura mountains in the canton of Solothurn.
