Inspiration

Overview 

The spectacular case construction is likely the first thing you’ll notice about the Androgyne. With 52 components, the circular inner case with its bezel set with screws is framed by straight structural elements; a system of multi-part articulated lugs that allow the watch to conform to various wrist sizes. 

The brand’s MR02 caliber is a hand-wound mechanical movement produced entirely in-house. This is regulated by a 60-second tourbillon that combines classic and futuristic components. The sandblasted bridges holding the tourbillon cage are sandwiched between the mainplate and upper bridge, appearing to float free from the movement. The Androgyne’s inner workings have been crafted and assembled with haute horology traditions in mind, and the openworking adds to the overall industrial aesthetic.

Inspiration

True to its name, the Androgyne brings together contrasting male and female forms - a yin and a yang - in stylish union. Some elements of the design, such as the tourbillon bridge, appear classical and sit alongside contemporary parts such as the floating lugs. The traditional screwed balance wheel presents an intriguing juxtaposition with the cutting-edge silicon escapement. Indeed, wherever you choose to focus, contrasting components are freely disclosed.
