WATCHES WITH A PURPOSE

A California Watch with a French Touch.

NOTSAG WATCHES is a brand based in Los Angeles, California (USA), created in 2018 by Laurent Chardin Rischmann, offering  original, high-quality Swiss Made pieces in limited series, powered by the best available automatic Swiss movements. Laurent is a watch enthusiast born in France and in the US since 2005. He spent most of his career in the Entertainment industry and he has 3 children.

NOTSAG is the anagram of GASTON the founder’s oldest son born in 2010 with developmental challenges including mitochondrial disease, severe autism and a GABBR2 mutation.

NOTSAG watches are produced with quality in mind and are powered with the best Swiss automatic movements. Our first collection offers 2 divers with a lot of features, designed for both water sports and around the city. Travelers will be happy with the Type II offering a useful GMT sub-dial. Powered by a Soprod movement they are available in only 999 numbered pieces.

By eliminating distribution costs and by applying one if not the lowest margin within the industry, we are able to offer high-quality Swiss made watches at a very affordable price, while securing enough funding for both the next collection and Gaston’s Journey charity.

Delivery expected by December 2020

NOTSAG IN THE PRESS

Monochrome watches

“Although both the Type I and Type II are accessibly priced, they’re unique, well-designed Swiss-made divers with impressive underwater chops.“

Chrononautix

“Laurent brings some fresh and independent design ideas that set his microbrand apart from the majority of newcomer watch brands.“

Montres Automatiques Intemporelles

”The black bezel with bicolore graduation is a real plus in terms of the overall look. Nothing to say on the finishing!”

Monochrome watches

“The Type I is an intriguing and well-designed Swiss made diver in its own right but represents much more.”

Chrononautix

“The key data (sapphire crystal, ceramic bezel etc.) in connection with the successful and independent design elements based on the Soprod caliber (GMT, power reserve indicator) give the NOTSAG entry-level model a very attractive overall picture.”

Montres Automatiques Intemporelles

“A quality case with finishings that will pleased the most demanding of us all.”
