Inspiration

Overview

Housed in super-technical case constructs, with innovative material inserts such as titanium, the watches of the Exploration sports collection from duManège are as tough and reliable as they look and feel on the wrist. The first launch was bestowed with a highly practical five-day power reserve, and this latest Exploration model now takes things even further, with a monopusher chronograph and a beautifully symmetrical and uncluttered display.

It’s an uncompromisingly sporty specimen, at over 45mm in diameter, but duManège have been clever enough to position the crown and the stopwatch function’s pushbutton both on the left-hand side, so to not impede wrist movement (assuming you wear your watch on your left wrist of course!). What’s more, the pusher is even easier to use at the “7 o’clock” position, given where your right-hand thumb would naturally fall on the case.

Inspiration

As with every watch from duManège, the case construct and bold lines are informed by the UNESCO-protected Art Nouveau architecture of its hometown, La Chaux-de-Fonds. The horological DNA within stems from the non-pareil expertise of the local artisans.

In The Know

“The market launch of the DM-Exploration reinforces some of those unique and inspiring values derived from a specific urban setting and relationship with one of the historical cradles of top-drawer watchmaking. This is a city – let us recall here – where even the construction of the houses was done according to the lighting needs of the watchmakers who worked inside them.” Watchonista
