Launched in December 2018, Nepto has entered the world of artisan watchmaking with duality and excellence. With two stunning collections, the brand captures both the Parisian and Berliner in its creations and formulates an extravagant elegance to their enriched light and dark colours. Nepto’s creators, Victor Ifrah and Florian Fernández, came together from a chance encounter on the dance floor in a famous Berlin club and ever since have been breathing life into the independent brand. With Ifrah as the mastermind and passion behind the designs, his knowledge of the materials and his technical skills paired with the business school graduate Fernández, this dynamic duo has already led to great success. The independent brand offers a step into a new era with exquisite mastery and refinement.
The No. 1 collection comprises four luxury models with original dials and offbeat designs. Models include Pink Brush, a dynamic piece in pink and gold; Blue Smoke, a vibrant blue model; and two darker models, Black Flower and Dark Side, which both have dark lugs and the signature Nepto red hands and dials. The No. 1 collection pieces are all singular and unisex, coming with two different case sizes in array of colours that are designed to match any style of clothing.
The Shield collection takes on a much different design and embodies refinement. The shape of the face is designed to resemble the coat of arms of Paris. It comes in three timeless colours: Blue Ocean in a serene azure glow; Green Spectra in a green and red ombre blend; and Black Eleganza, a stunning brooding black lug with a sharp crimson case. Blue Ocean and Green Spectra both have signature brown straps with patterning, while Black Eleganza has a black strap to match its dark finish. The collection moves away from a traditional story of watchmaking and design and into something bold and beautiful with perfect brushed metal, gloss and matte finishes. Both collections come with certificates of authenticity. •
