This daring watch involves us from a small however groundbreaking Swiss model named after its founder, Romain Gauthier. The piece itself is fairly normal – three arms and a dream – however the match and end are hanging. Want to know the weirdest/coolest factor? The entire factor is off-center.
As befits its identify, Continuum is all about modernity and continuity, each by way of its motion structure and dial design. If the observer seems to be intently, he’ll see that the hour-minute arms are literally off-centred on the horizontal axis and the hour indices taper ever so barely and are of various lengths, whereas the 5-second intervals of the small seconds at 7 o’clock are additionally marked by tapering vivid pink traces of differing lengths.
Romain explains this purposeful play on perspective, saying: “Rather than a sequence of enclosed circles, as we regularly see in watchmaking, I needed an open, ethereal dial on which full or half orthogonal traces type vanishing factors with the axes of the arms, reinforcing the notion of continuity.”
The arms are created from white gold and the case is product of titanium. The crown is at 2 o’clock to “liberate house for wrist motion” and there’s just a little rubber ring round it to make it simpler to deal with.
The arms, pips, and numerals are coated in Superluminova and the piece comes collectively in a harmonious entire.
There is, nonetheless, one downside. This beast is $40,310.43 at immediately’s trade fee, which suggests you’re principally hiring Romain Gauthier to make this restricted version watch only for you. While I really like the entire thing – the hanging motion is the most effective half – I’m considering possibly I’ll follow buying a household automotive or one thing. Soon, although!
