Watchmaking expresses its very essence in timepieces that embrace only the essential. A self-evidence, one might say, which only complicates the task further. For what could be more difficult than to propose a round, three-hand watch with sufficient character, style and personality to stand out from its peers? Every brand has tried. Not all have succeeded, and for good reason: such a watch demands a particular sensibility and an uncommon talent for appropriating space. Meet these conditions, and the watch borders on the sublime. What better to bring us back down to earth than a watch that will accompany us in all life’s adventures. That such objects are already rife gives us some idea of the magnitude of the task. Or rather the challenge. Watchmakers are undaunted.
