NFC, or Near Field Communication, is a technology allowing to exchange information between a reader and a compatible mobile terminal. It is the technology you use with your credit card for contactless payment, or your transport card. The advantage of this technology is that in principle, no application is required. You just have to bring the two supports closer, less than 1 cm.

Yes, mainly with our bank cards and the contactless payment function. Today, most of the recent phones, your credit cards and your earphones are NFC compatible.

NFC works thanks to a chip that allows the exchange of information between two equipped devices. It can be between 2 phones, between a phone and a payment terminal or a speaker. This technology is used in particular by the manufacturers of contactless bank cards. If your card is compatible, a small logo close to the Wi-Fi one is present on it.

In the case of passive NFC, as is the case here, the chip has no access to the data stored in the phone. Moreover, the technology only works over very small distances (there must be less than 1cm between the phone and the watch), which considerably reduces the risks.

The access is very wide, the NFC will redirect the user to a link set by the brand. This link can redirect to any type of page (existing or specially created by the brand: forms, videos, etc.).

Most recent Android and IOS smartphones are equipped with an NFC chip. Please make sure that the NFC setting is turned on.

While NFC technology is not new in a watch (contactless payment watch), it takes on a whole new dimension here thanks to the innovations developed: the internal structure of the watch remains completely unchanged; the technology, which is non-invasive, is integrated only in the sapphire crystal glass on Chapter 4 models or within the straps on Chapter 3 and 5 models. BA111OD is the first watchmaker to use the NFC function at your service.

Thomas Baillod is a precursor in his approach, since the creation of hisbrand in 2019. Driven by the desire to create the watch of today. The one that brings together all the splendor of classical watchmaking with the technology of our time. Without intruding on the mechanical movement and without distortingits aesthetics.

You can have a mechanical Swiss Made watch with a digital twist: a watchmaking exclusivity signed BA111OD. 

No, this is impossible. On the same principle as the bank card is only active during contactless payment, the application on the phone is only activated when it is less than 1cm from the watch for a few seconds. And in this case, the chip does not have access to the data stored in the phone.

If we do not set it up in the first place, it will not be active. Otherwise, just send us an email to the following address: service@ba111od.com

No, because there is voluntarily no intrusion in the mechanical movement.

No, you won’t even notice it.
