At each new step, we will tell you all about how the project is progressing through our roadbook. You can read all the details directly on our blog.
Not at all! The Fastback™ system has been designed around the case to ensure natural integration between the watch case and the strap. There is no need to open the case to use the Fastback™ system and therefore no impact on water resistance.
To enjoy your watch as long as possible, please follow our simple but effective tips on our related page. Some may seem obvious, but it's always useful to review the basics.
Our watches are assembled in France by our partner, which has been handling assembly and customer service for many French brands since 1956/for over four generations. Each watch is meticulously inspected and the parts are assembled with the utmost precision. All watches are then individually tested, particularly to ensure the movement works properly. Only after this are the watches set and the power reserve charged so they can be shipped to you, ready to be worn on your wrist for many years.
SYE watches come with a two-year warranty. If you spot any problems with your watch, tell us about them in detail through our online contact form – we'll help you solve the problem and get your watch in tip-top shape as soon as possible. You can read all the details about our warranty on the warranty page.
The user manual is still being finalized, but you will be able to read it very soon.
Fastback™ straps are designed to be worn on a wide range of wrist sizes. To be sure our strap will fit your wrist, measure your wrist size as shown in the animation below/above. If your wrist measures 15-20 cm (6-8 inches), all good! You'll be able to wear a MOT1ON watch by adjusting the strap to one of the nine integrated positions.
We have taken every step to make sure your Fastback™ strap stays with you as long as possible. SYE selects natural leather for a unique and uncomparable soft touch. Like for all leather products, following some simple daily rules will let you enjoy your strap for as long as possible: - do not take baths, showers or go swimming with your Fastback™ strap - do not spray anything on the strap, particularly creams or perfumes - remove your strap before doing any kind of work... prevention is better than cure ;) As a reminder, leather is a living and unique material. Therefore, straps will naturally vary in appearance between each other and may also change appearance over time. This is part of their value – every strap will acquire its own patina over time, becoming uniquely yours.
To ensure as seamless an integration as possible between the MOT1ON case and the strap, the system we developed is unique. It is therefore not possible to use a standard watch strap (equipped with spring bars) with your MOT1ON watch.
It's very easy and it's part of the SYE's experience. Just have a look at our video tutorial.
Every payment is secured by PayPlug, a payment institution licensed by the French Prudential Supervision and Resolution Authority under the jurisdiction of the French Central Bank. As per French banking law, payments are sent to a temporary holding account before being transferred to SYE. This two-step money transfer allows PayPlug to oversee the pre-order status and watch deliveries, thereby improving security for all transactions. If SYE were unable to fulfil its commitments, customers would be automatically refunded.
It's very easy! > For our French and Belgian customers using Alma, at checkout, select the option "pay in three instalments". You'll then be directed to the platform of our partner, Alma, which will ask you a few questions to authorize the payement. The total amount and dates of the three instalments will then be confirmed. Every month, Alma will send you an e-mail to notify you of your upcoming payment.
> For all our customers using Paypal, at checkout, select the Paypal payment. You'll then be directed to Paypal's platform. You'll then just have to choose the option to split your payment in 4 instalments for free.
