Every Claude Meylan’s “LAC” timepiece is inspired by the beautiful Lac de Joux, but it’s this particular watch that best reflects the surrounding valley during the long, frozen winter – its steely-blue sunbeam dial radiating with metallic icicles. The brand’s “sculptors of time” motto couldn’t be more apt.

Moreover, at Claude Meylan, its watchmakers want to reconnect you with their creations’ 18th-century heritage even more viscerally than the usual sapphire caseback. Thus, thanks to three expertly openworked dial aperture, a tantalising glimpse of the wheels, levers and springs of the Unitas movement ticking inside is afforded dial-side.


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 winter days can be beautiful, the low sun glinting from the frozen lake – a spectacle reflected by the dial of this watch.
