Conteenium.fr has been, since 2014, the reference site dedicated to enthusiasts of quality automatic watches.

In 2016, the company Conteenium SAS renamed its watch distribution website Montres-automatiques.com to Montre-automatique.com, simpler… and more practical for daily use.

A new design is conceived. Cleaner, understated, with a touch of essential elegance to the watchmaking world.

Initially located in a dynamic district of the Capital, the 14th arrondissement, the team, originally composed of 3 members – François, the founder; Florent, the technology director; and Nathalie, in charge of customer service – draws their energies towards an ambitious goal:

TO OFFER AN ALTERNATIVE TO WATCHMAKING ENTHUSIASTS, WHETHER BEGINNERS OR INITIATES, BY OFFERING THEM QUALITY TIMEPIECES AT COMPETITIVE PRICES

Our strength lies in our ability to unearth high-quality watch brands that are difficult to find in France, in order to offer them to our discerning customers. If you are looking for “Fashion” brands or those known for their expertise in ready-to-wear, you are probably in the wrong place. Other highly competent shops can assist you with that. For the rest, welcome to Montre-automatique.com!

As of the time of writing on Monday, January 9, 2017, 4857 customers have already trusted us worldwide, with 86.5% in France. Our Facebook page is on its way to 4000 fans, and that’s thanks to you: THANK YOU!

In June 2017, after 14 months of sketches, searching for the ideal manufacturer, and trips to Asia, we are proud to unveil our line of “watch accessories by Duvernet“.

Duvernet aims to be a qualitative, accessible, aesthetic, and functional brand.

Our watch winders, guaranteed for 2 years, are extremely silent and have a unique design. They will meet the expectations of the majority of automatic watches available on the market. For any questions regarding our new range of watch winders, feel free to contact us, by clicking here!

WHY DID YOU NAME THE COMPANY BEHIND THIS WEBSITE "CONTEENIUM"? CONTEENIUM IS DERIVED FROM THE LATIN WORD CONTINUUM, WHICH DESIGNATES A SET OF ELEMENTS BETWEEN WHICH PASSAGE IS CONTINUOUS.

October 1, 2017: It’s the big day!

Our French company (hooray!) Conteenium SAS is launching the international version of its website Montre-automatique.com: Conteenium.com

For over 3 years, customers from all over the world trusted us without necessarily understanding French, happy to have found in our store THE watch they had been searching for.

To kick off this new adventure, the team is expanding. Simon, a young Franco-American straight from Los Angeles, joins our Parisian offices, in charge of order preparation and international development for Conteenium.com.

November 2018: Montre-automatique.com celebrates its 4th anniversary and moves to new offices in the 8th arrondissement. The space is more chic, more spacious, and will eventually allow us to welcome customers in a new dedicated showroom.

June 24, 2022: acquisition of the material assets of the company TimeByMe following a judicial reorganization.

January 13, 2023: the pressure is rising!

After 3 years of intense work, our business is about to change its trade name to Conteenium.fr.

For almost 10 years, our team has focused only on the automatic watch market, intentionally neglecting the rest of the existing mechanisms.

But with time, the island on which we sailed seemed too small: what to say to a customer who, satisfied with our services, not only wanted to order a nice mechanical watch from us to look elegant at the office but also a smartwatch for the weekend, or even a jewel for his daughter, his wife, or someone dear to him?

We could not maintain this conservative mindset any longer; you will soon find on Conteenium.fr watches with batteries, solar-powered, and even connected, as well as jewelry for men and women!

Of course, we still intend to stay in the lead in the automatic market but offering much more to our customers!
