The watch is housed in a space-age grade 5 titanium case and worn on a black fabric strap.

The Spectacle Watch

This watch is a genuine spectacle for the eyes. It features a constantly rotating construction on the front, with hours indicated by jumping discs in the center and minutes indicated on the perimeter. Two inclined orbital escapements regulate everything, and there is a power reserve display on the back. Limited to 18 pieces, this watch is fitted with a black alligator leather strap.

The Horse-Nomad Watch

This watch showcases a unique minute repeater mechanism with gongs shaped like tuning forks that wrap around the dial.

This watch is worn on a leather strap and is a testament to both craftsmanship and innovation.

The Wafer-Thin Watch
