The project was born from a deep desire to combine a passion for watchmaking/jewelry while contributing to bringing a positive impact to our society.

Michelle Obama has rightly said, “Success is not about money; it’s the difference you make in people’s lives. “

It is clearly on such a philosophy that For8ner builds its model.

Utopia or Reality for tomorrow?

FOR8NER wants to bet that the social and solidarity economy is tomorrow’s future, even more so in sectors such as luxury and fashion.

Isn’t it rewarding to wear beautiful creations and simultaneously improve someone’s life?


My name is Thierry, founder of FOR8NER.

After more than 12 years in a prestigious luxury group, I decided to create FOR8NER, a fashion, luxury, and social brand.

During my career in the Haute Horlogerie and Haute Joaillerie industry, I have had the chance to meet countless talents constantly pursuing excellence in their profession.

To Inspire and make customers dream are the golden rules of this industry, and I must admit that they managed to captivate me and make me feel these emotions.

However, nothing predestined me to be part of such a universe. Paradoxically, I come from a poor and working-class family. 

My parents had to flee the genocide in Cambodia in the 1970s and were forced to reinvent themselves from scratch. They took refuge in the city of Besançon in FRANCE, a city already renowned at that time for its watchmaking know-how.

Maybe the sign was there.

So I learned over time that making your dreams come true through hard work, sharing, and benevolence was possible.

FOR8NER was born from this desire to share and celebrate these values through beautiful creations while remaining in a simple and, above all, human approach.

More than a brand, FOR8NER is a symbol, a lifestyle where a cosmopolitan community, open to others, likes to discover and inspire each other.



FOR8NER was born from this desire to share 12 years of experience in the Luxury industry and bring added value to society.

At For8ner, we are in the business of empowering people to achieve their dreams. No matter who you are or where you come from, you have equal access to opportunities and education. Because we believe everyone can fulfill their potential, providing they are given a chance to achieve their purpose. We pledge to donate 8% of each sale to help those most in need. Our partnership with B1G1 will allow our community to positively and significantly impact from the first cent received.

For8ner’s status symbols inspire empowerment, optimism, and possibility. We want to redefine luxury on our terms: more conscious, inclusive, and social. Our beautifully designed, exceptional products are made with the utmost consideration and quality. From creation to action, For8ner is a luxury with integrity.
