The back Story
The story of Encelade-1789 starts with the family, and a very emotional connection. Two cousins from a haute horlogerie (expertise and history in watchmaking) background decided that the world of men’s accessories needed a welcome change. Their grandfather, who believed in them and encouraged them to explore new avenues very much took them off a beaten track.
The two cousins were looking for something innovative and executive with their focus very much on rotation…
And so Encelade-1789 was created. Its name is taken from one of Saturn’s moons, Enceladus in English, which was discovered in 1789, the year of the French Revolution. The name encapsulates the concepts of rotation, non-conformity and the French origins of the company’s two founders.
Add the family connection, Swiss manufacture, patented designs, high-tech components using the smallest ball-bearings in the world, spectacular finishing and hand assembly, and it becomes clear how Encelade-1789’s cufflinks and writing instruments are able to borrow the conventions of haute horlogerie to inspire the ultimate accessories for today’s elegant man.
