About

Warning! Horological Machine N°3 is so far outside existing timekeeping references that it may cause sensory overload. Developed to display the machine’s beautifully finished movement in operation, it reveals harmoniously crafted bridges, rapidly oscillating balance wheel, gearing and distinctive battle-axe shaped automatic winding rotor.

The wearer can then fully appreciate the art and craft that makes up Horological Machine N°3 and draws one’s gaze inside the highly complex machine; a machine comprising more than 300 fine-finished, high-precision components. Turning the watch over reveals the technical secret behind its inverted movement: two large high-tech ceramic bearings efficiently transmitting power up to the cones and date wheel.

Individualists demand choice, so HM3 is available in two versions: ‘Sidewinder’, with cones lined perpendicular to the arm and ‘Starcruiser’, with cones in line with the arm. Each version has its own very distinct visual characteristics and each offers its own angle on telling the time.
