About

Horological Machine N°2 is a holistically conceived and engineered three-dimensional timekeeping machine. HM2 features the first world's mechanical movement offering: Instantaneous Jumping Hour, Concentric Retrograde Minutes, Retrograde Date, Bi-Hemisphere Moon-Phase and Automatic Winding.

Horological Machine N°2 is an incredible sophisticated micro-mechanical work of art with over 450 components making up the case and movement; however its complexity has been carefully engineered for functional simplicity.

The dynamic tension between apparently incongruous elements in Horological Machine N°2, such as that between cutting-edge technology and sculptural art, matte finish and mirror polish, high-tech alloys and precious metals, and between traditional watchmaking and 21st century micro-engineering, endows this impeccably finished machine with vibrant vitality.

Horological Machine N°2 takes one last bow on center stage with two final limited editions of 18 pieces each, both featuring sapphire cases: HM2-Black SV and HM2-Red SV close the HM2 collection, thus ensuring its exclusivity.
