Antoine Franc Brings Cool Elegance with the Monument Series
[dropcap size=big]I[/dropcap]f you’re looking for a new watch that covers all the bases of casual style and high fashion, the Antoine Franc Monument Series may be pinging on your radar. This timepiece is Antoine Franc’s debut into the world of watches, and it is already making quite the splash. If early Kickstarter buzz is anything to go by, the Monument Series is set to be a hit.
Luckily, the Monument Series watches live up to the hype with their stylish elegance. Available as both White and Black editions for men and women, the Monument Series is a nod to timeless watchmaking, including leading craftsmanship and graceful design.
Thanks to a distinctive design that is both stylish and refined, the Monument Series from Antoine Franc fits into just about any fashion conditions you can think of. With its sumptuous brown leather strap, the watch can be a fantastic adventure timepiece for rugged use. With the more traditional black leather or metal straps, the Monument Series becomes either a standout dress watch or an innovative accompaniment for day-to-day use.
However you choose to use the Monument Series, there’s no doubt that innovation plays a big part in this design. Antoine France has crafted a unique case and dial. That one-of-a-kind design stems from a multilevel dial and bold case back. The company has achieved something that is hard to do, a watch that is ideal for both the understated wearer and the extrovert alike.
Having a timeless design is important, but Antoine Franc has relied on modernity for the craftsmanship. Built to last in the modern age, the Monument Series boasts Miyota 9120 movement that shows the time, month, day, date, and 24-hour display.

One of the things I like the most about the Monument Series is how respectful it is of classic watches. This is a timepiece with a clear mid-20th century aesthetic. That’s important because timepieces back then were built to be worn under different circumstances. The versatility of the Monument Series is what sets it apart.
Kickstarter can be a minefield for the watch aficionado, but with the Monument Series from Antoine Franc you get something different. This isn’t the usual crowd funded effort thanks to its thoughtful design, clear quality, and pure style.
The Antoine Franc Monument Series is now live on Kickstarter and available across several funding packages.
