Collector of photography and design enthusiast, Antonin Mercier left the art market to launch the first editions of LAPS watch in 2015. He brings together graphic and aesthetic inspirations to develop a new approach to the watchmaking world. Elegant, quirky or unique, each edition expresses the discovery or the encounter of LAPS with an artist and his work. Since 2018, the brand has regularly collaborated with new creators and photographers on various projects.
“Enthusiastic people editing artistic works in watches”
As editions in art gallery, Signature watches are produced in a limited series on fine art paper.
The Modernist collection, faithful to the crafts, revisits these techniques to accompany its contemporary creations.
Each LAPS watch is designed as a work to unveil on your wrist.
A Parisian workshop.
It is in Paris, under the canopy of a workshop almost like the others, that the dials of our watches are shaped by hand.
By favoring manufacturing and assembly with Parisian partners, LAPS is the only watch brand labeled by the council of Paris.
In order to offer you the best finishes on our products, we are constantly looking for the best suppliers and partners.
Whether for prints or the precious materials of our dials, we favor French and European suppliers to guarantee traceability and quality of production.
LAPS is above all a human adventure where passionate and creative craftsmen apply themselves to offer you the most beautiful of their know-how. Between development laboratory and manufacturing place, we are working to widen the field of possibilities to offer unique models in line with the times.
