One look says it all: this is a watch that is made to measure for golf enthusiasts. Not only do the Backswing’s case and dial, sculpted from titanium and steel, have a golf ball’s unmistakable dimples, they also borrow the sport’s characteristic green and orange. An ingenious mechanism allows the wearer to keep track of their strokes on a central counter, which remains visible through the openworked hour and minute hands whatever their position. The counter is set simply by pressing the “score” and “reset” buttons. Even the movement is golf-inspired, with rubber inserts protecting it against shocks and vibrations. The horological equivalent of a hole in one.
