4N is a French watch brand that creates timepieces, which are resolutely masculine and cutting-edge.
While they have an exclusive Limited Edition timepiece (last one of 16) up on TouchOf Modern, for a
members-only price, we got the chance of catching up with designer François Quentin for a quick

In a word, Fine Watchmaking is a cultivation of knowledge and know-how. While Fine Watchmaking
is heir to a long tradition, it nonetheless firmly looks to the future. Its values are research, innovation,
development and training new generations.” I would add to this definition, a point that seems to be
missed: artistic dimension. Haute Horlogerie, beyond the simple functional dimension, addresses
sense emotions and the intellect, and like art is pure gratuity and infinite freedom~
