Montre Noire

Montre Noire Rolex

Montre Noire presents the black Rolex. This statement alone could sum up the success of the young brand, but that would overshadow a lot.

Before meeting Alexandre and Zacharie, founders of Montre Noire, I was relatively sceptical.

I knew of Bamford, which customises a selection of prestigious watches thanks to the PVD technique (Physical Vapour Deposition / effective but ages with time).

To embrace materialism is to love beautiful objects. But I must say this: I am not a fan of customising iconic objects. Choosing your (second hand) Rolex, the colour of its hands, the text to go with it… Not for me.

However, I met two people completely passionate about this object.

Montre Noire sells new Rolex watches (contrary to Bamford) that they dye black using an exclusive technology, borrowed from the world of Formula 1: the DLC (Diamond Like Carbon).

Aimed at strengthening fragile F1 pieces, the process reinforces steel and dyes it a permanent shade of jet black. The product isn’t distorted in any way, and there is no trace of a “Montre Noire” inscription.

Completely elegant and unique, the personalised watches are sold in a selection of handpicked shops, and on Caratime.

The watches are sold brand new, with their certificate of authenticity as well as their papers and original box.
1 year International guaranty covering the mechanism and the DLC treatment on the watches.

    J’ai acheté une montre noire aussi magnifique chez blackoutconcept à Genève c’est une rolex deepsea refaite celons mon goût. La personnalisation est parfaite ce n’est apparemment pas du DLC ni du PVD mais du BOC coating. pour l’instant rien à redire. La montre noire est faite en suisse avec garantie de 10 ans et 2 ans sur le mouvement… Bref aucun regrets vive les rolex black !
