Inspiration

Overview

Here, the dark art of physical-vapour deposition, or “PVD” renders Claude Meylan’s most sober dress watch design as stealth technology for the wrist – more Batman than Bruce Wayne.

At Claude Meylan, its watchmakers want to reconnect you with their creations’ 18th-century heritage more viscerally than ever, hence their exacting art of skeletonisation, “undressing” the wheels, levers and springs on the dial side. To chime with their matte-black vessel, what remains of the bridges are ruthenium-coated, which means the brass and steel parts ticking inside contrast more dramatically then ever. The legendary Unitas pocket-watch movement has never looked so cool.

Inspiration

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. The winters can be harsh, reflected by the dark, brooding nature of this timepiece.
