"Claude Meylan is a master of the art of skeletonising, and is considered one of the foremost exponents in Switzerland’s Vallée de Joux." Isabelle Guignet, WorldTempus

The intricate workings of your mechanical wristwatch, barely tweaked in hundreds of years of Swiss horology, will usually be admirable through a clear caseback alone. But at Claude Meylan, its watchmakers want to reconnect you with their creations’ 18th-century heritage even more viscerally. Thus, through the exacting art of skeletonisation, the wheels, levers and ticking springs are all “undressed” on the dial side, the sinuous metalwork that remains all intricately hand-engraved to emphasise the craftsmanship.
The movement itself is a legendary design from the Fifties, the “Unitas”, larger than most and hand-wound, as it started out in life powering pocket watches. Topped off with Roman numerals and framed by a gleaming chapter ring, it’s the perfect party conversation piece.
Lac de Joux is an integral part of many watchmakers’ lives; the natural lifeblood of the valley where Swiss haute horlogerie began in the 18th century. Its tranquility and seasonal evolution are reflected by Claude Meylan’s soberly elegant “Lac” creations.
