of Niveau élevé


There are over 800 watch brands in Switzerland. They all try to stand out from one another and be something special. But even with 800 brands, it is difficult to find any originality.
The watches of Niveau élevé don’t have this problem. The Niveau élevé has a three-dimensional design, and this design is not simply “contrived” or “plonked on”; it results from the substance of the watch. The cypher glass quite automatically and naturally creates a three-dimensionality that is so new and different that the watch immediately discloses its identity, even without a logo or specific shape. In all 800 Swiss watch brands, the hands move abpve the numbers. There is only one in which they move beneath the division of time.
In addition the individual design options of Niveau élevé is certainly unique among the luxury brands as the customer can compile his own Niveau élevé mathematically from more than 165 million different versions.

Cypher glass

With the watches of Niveau élevé a new chapter is starting in the structure of the classic watch.
The watch face, the division of time, is fused with the watch glass to form a new element – the cypher glass.
The driving force of this novelty is a symbolism that stands for a certain perspective on oneself and the world. It also brings a totally new visual appearance for the watch.
The change of planes from the basic time system and flow of time symbolises the intended progress in our own consciousness.


The brilliant cut is the queen of all the cut shapes and has barely been changed at all over the last 100 years.
In order to fully meet the philosophical concept of Niveau élevé and to perfectly symbolize the time in the watches Niveau élevé has combined the more than 5000 year-old mathematical principle of the division of time with the luminous flux in a diamond. Seven completely new, unique cut shapes were designed which turn the brilliant cut into a twelve-point time star.
The required perfection of our own diamond grinding company is unrivaled worldwide.

Material, elements, design

Today, a high quality watch primarily serves for self-discovery or appears as a striking element of self-identification.
There are two aspects to this: the effect that the watch has on ourselves and the effect that the watch has on our environment. With most watch brands, it is indeed the message to the environment which is more important to us than the effect on ourselves. With a Niveau élevé, the emphasis could be quite different. While the effect on ourselves is rather passive with other watches, it is hopefully active with a Niveau élevé. We are already serious about our change of heart and attempting to realign our own time and life!


Niveau élevé produces high-quality jewellery in many variations which always takes into account all three basic principles of good jewelery:
Aesthetic, Symbolic power, Intrinsic value
Particular significance is always assigned to the philosophical aspect of the jewels. As with watches, good jewellery is an instrument for self-identification or self-discovery.
