"Claude Meylan is a master of the art of skeletonising, and is considered one of the foremost exponents in Switzerland’s Vallée de Joux. The Tortue collection is a perfect illustration of this technical feat." WorldTempus
The venerable “tortue” or tortoise case-shape lends an eccentric nobility to Claude Meylan’s skeletonised movement, perfectly framing the whirring mechanics.

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 framed elegantly by the tortoise-shaped contours of this model’s steel case.
The movement itself is adapted from the solid-as-a-rock ETA 2801, its components suspended mid-air by waves of hair-thin steel, not a single numeral or subdial interfering with the spectacle. It’s the perfect conversation piece.
The tranquility and seasonal evolution of the Lac de Joux inspires Claude Meylan’s “LAC” creations, being the cradle of 18th-century watchmaking, and it isn’t difficult to imagine the skeletal branches of the trees lining the shore in winter as the impetus for this sparse beauty.
