Looking for a new and unique luxury timepiece to add to your collection? Imaginative high-end brand Pathengers is the name on everyone’s lips this year, going beyond opulence alone and placing a focus on design that is inspired by travel and the wonders of planet Earth.

The first watch brand that allows you to sport a timepiece inspired by one of your favourite cities or destinations and the allure of nature, it’s little wonder that it has quickly won itself a legion of loyal fans – many of them jet-setters, travel and nature enthusiasts themselves – and from the romance of Paris to the rural beauty of Tuscany, there’s a Pathengers watch for you.

The brainchild of three luxury, design and travel enthusiasts – Guillaume Bellon, Stanislas Ioli, and Bruno Marmeys – the brand, which was founded just last year, fuses these distinct yet interlinked areas of luxury to bring something truly unique to market, and high-end watch collectors around the world are taking note.

Imagined and designed in Paris, Pathengers’ breath-taking collection of timepieces aims to pay homage to the rhythm and beauty of our planet, with designs reflecting moods and feelings ranging from the life and soul of the city to the heady appeal of our natural world. When it comes to exclusive and opulent timepieces, it doesn’t get much better than this.

Each watch is the culmination of years of vision, research and craft, with its first two proud launches including the Triomphe – the first in the City Collection – and the Orcia, which is the initial timepiece within the Wild Collection. The former is a favourite amongst city dwellers, and designed for those who are always on the move, with Paris’ distinctive identity reflected in its graphic details and choice of textures and its soft and timeless midnight blue alligator leather strap and a minimalistic light grey dial evoking memories of this captivating city.

The Orcia, meanwhile, is aimed at the nomadic traveller who isn’t willing to compromise when it comes to luxury, and appeals to the nature loving and adventurous type who simply can’t get enough of experiencing the world at large. With details giving a nod to the wild and natural habitats that make our planet so captivating, it makes particular reference to the rolling hills and verdant landscapes of Tuscany, from its light brown strap to the subtle touches of orange and green on its dial, making for a beautiful and opulent timepiece you can’t help but fall in love with. Delicate engraving on the back of each watch pays homage to the location that inspired it – from the Arc de Triomphe that embellishes the Triomphe in a nod to the French capital, to the depiction of the hilly Val D’Orcia in Italy on the Orcia.

Every Pathengers watch is housed within a breath-taking earth-shaped ‘sphere’ case, which is an item worth owning even in its own right. Not only do you get a beautifully-crafted timepiece when investing in a Pathengers watch, but also a bespoke decorative object that is, in itself, a work of art. And both watches feature an opulent, sapphire crystal lined glass that affords added depth to their copper dials, with a robust Japanese Miyota mechanism ensuring optimal performance thanks to its reliable technology and precision.

While the natural world and earth’s urban playgrounds might, at times, appear to be separate entities, the truth is that in life, they often collide – and Pathengers draws on the best of both within its timepieces to encapsulate this fact. Pride in our cities and technological advances yet enamoured also by the beauty, strength and magic of Mother Nature, the two do not have to be mutually exclusive, and in Pathengers’ stunning collection of watches, they are anything but.

Given the brand’s love for the natural environment, it’s perhaps unsurprising that it makes it a priority to do its best to support it, and has implemented a program that backs a range of environmental causes – so customers can rest assured that in treating themselves to a show-stopping new timepiece, they are also contributing to the health of our planet.

“One of the biggest challenges in bringing our vision for Pathengers to fruition was how to capture the essence and spirit of a place, on an object as small as a watch,” says Guillaume Bellon, chief designer of Pathengers.

By purchasing a Pathengers, you will get two items, a beautiful-crafted timepiece and a bespoke decorative object.

“We want our watches to become a means of virtual travel. With this in mind and during the entire creative process, we tried to achieve a design result that would fuse simplicity and personality. Each and every element of the watch was meticulously studied – the case, its coating, its shape and size. The dial and its rendering. The hands and their complexity. The strap, the material and colour. The crown and its personality. The clasp and its shape. The engravings and colors. The back case and location.”

Suffice it to say that this unique luxury brand is fast making a name for itself as one to watch in 2022, and its sophisticated, expertly engineered timepieces could become valuable collectors’ items in the future. In the meantime, they are the perfect picks for travel and nature lovers alike, and with new models set to be launched across both the City and Wild collections over the coming months, here at LLM, we can’t wait to see what else they have in store.
