The Corniche Story
THE CLASSIC WATCH
Discover the world of Corniche.
The Heritage 40 in rose gold. All watches from the Heritage collection comes delivered with an outer box, a piano lacquered presentation box, an owner’s manual and a certificate.
We’ve combined a long-lasting love for watches with a strong belief that luxury and versatility doesn’t have to be compromised. Hence, our mission is simple.
To help people look great keeping track of their most
precious possession: their time.
We find our inspiration in our roots - namely the Côte d'Azur. After all, this is where we spent countless childhood summers, living in Sanary Sur Mer, a small village on the coast of Provence. Like many before us, we fell in love with its rocky coastline, the smell of ancient pine trees and the warm
evening air filled with the chi-chi-chi of crickets. F. Scott
Fitzgerald described it as a playground with a fairy blue sea. Coco Chanel sunbathed here aboard the Duke of
Wellington's yacht. Even the Parisians stay for the summer – and they’re never wrong about anything.
And we, well, we were just kids. But we kept coming back.
“...And we, well, we were just kids. But we kept coming back.”
One of our main goals have always been to put the customer first, not only by having a customer service that is way above anything in our class but also to have an online
shopping experience that is smoother than any other.
Since our launch, we’ve endeavoured to make the ordinary extraordinary and the everyday timeless.
As our legacy continues, we hope that our love of quality timepieces can meet and inspire your very own story - just the way it did for us.
WHAT’S A CORNICHE?
The French word "Corniche", which translates into something like a "cliff road", describes many of the beautifully mountainous routes that you'll find along the French Riviera. The three most scenic ones follow the coastline from Nice to Menton: the Grande Corniche, the Moyenne Corniche and the Corniche
Inférieure. In fact, the views are so dramatic you might actually end up in the Mediterranean if you're not careful. Oh, and you know that little village where we spent our childhood summers? Well, our house just so happened to sit on
Avenue de la Corniche.

A HANDFUL OF OUR
Below we’ve collected the stories that make up our history - from the limited-edition
timepieces that we produce - to other highlights. We hope that you’ll find it inspiring.
THE LIMITED EDITION
We’ve always been inspired by the things, people and places we admire, so for the limited edition Historique Club-des-Sports-Courchevel we decided to travel up north to the French alps. In collaboration with this legendary skiing club we set out to produce the perfect all mountain watch regardless if you’re flying down the slope or enjoying the après ski with friends. Limited Edition of 250 watches.
THE LIMITED EDITION
HERITAGE 40 PALOMA BEACH
This watch celebrated and partnered with one of our favourite places on earth, Paloma Beach. Situated on Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat and named after the daughter of Pablo Picasso, this lovely little refuge has offered
pristine waters and delicious food since 1948. Best of all, even though it’s surrounded by the giant villas of the nouveau riche, it has still managed to retain its laid-back family feel year after year. Limited Edition of 499 watches.
THE LIMITED EDITION
HERITAGE 40 SAINT-JEAN-CAP-FERRAT PRESTIGE
Inspired by the recurring classic car event on Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, the limited edition timepiece sports a sharp stainless steel case, a Midnight Blue Visage Dial and a Midnight Blue Suede Strap - the latter two featuring eye-catching Prestige Blue contrasting details. Only 250 individually pieces were made.
