They come in many different forms, with endless subtle particularities. But whether they are paced or sprightly, whether they wear it loose or fitted, whether they are desk-bound or are inclined to facing Nature’s extremes, theirs is a science we strive to master as precisely as possible. It makes for quite the challenge, as they are an endlessly wide gamut of variables to account for. And yet, from our very beginnings, we, as wristwatch makers, have continually honed each and every one of our crafts in order to master the movement of any wrist.
Precision needs anticipation
For us, precision is not just a matter of watchmaking mechanics. It equally involves human “mechanics”. Beyond what it takes to design, manufacture and arrange every single part that constitutes our watches, our superlative precision is the result of our fine grasp of those who wear them.
For us, precision is not just a matter of watchmaking mechanics. Hence why “predicting the unpredictable” has always been the guiding principle of our perpetual quest for precision.
Whether it be an indolent one, suddenly bucking vigorously, a rigorous one, moving to the pace of the everyday, or one that is still and calm, they require the watch to endure them all, no matter the position. It is by observing, understanding and reproducing all these behaviours in our laboratory that we are able to guarantee that our timepieces move impeccably, no matter how the wrist it adorns does. Hence why “predicting the unpredictable” has always been the guiding principle of our perpetual quest for precision.
